Don't Bring a BB Gun to a Gunfight

Armed homeowner meets home invader - hard to call him armed. San Marcos homeowner shoots intruder three times
According to San Marcos Police, a 21-year old male, armed with a BB gun, broke into home where he was shot by the homeowner three times. As of Thursday night, police had not released the name of the suspect, but said he was still in an Austin hospital.
It is the 2nd time in two months that a home invasion ran into an armed homeowner in that town. (In the one last month, the homeowner shot 3 of the 4 invaders. 2 of those he shot, died.) You might think that message would filter down to the masses.

If you break into enough homes, sooner or later you will meet an armed homeowner who will object - with extreme prejudice - to your presence in his home. That will happen sooner, if you are unlucky, or as the case here, you are in Texas.

Self-defense is a human right. In a lot of places, like Texas, it is also your legal right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
