Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0

They suffered a failure of the victim selection process, and tried to rob an armed homeowner. Man kills one home invader, injures another, police say
Two black males entered the home, assaulted a man and demanded money, according to a press release from the Butler County Sheriff’s Office.

The resident, who neighbors say is the homeowner’s nephew, told deputies the men had a small caliber handgun and “struck him in the head with the firearm.” He then fired at them with an automatic weapon. When police arrived, they found the two men near the door with multiple gunshot wounds.
And no, I doubt seriously that it was an automatic weapon. It was more likely a semiautomatic pistol. But if you expect reporters to understand firearms, well you expect too much.

Self-defense is a human right.
