Firearms stop break-in

Observer-Reporter: Grandsons thwart attempted break-in. Two grandsons decide to protect their grandfather after 2 break-ins. They decided to use rifles as their means of defense.
"I could hear him come in. I just waited until he came around the corner. Then my brother turned on the light."

The brothers were armed with rifles. Wallace pulled out a .38-cal. handgun that police later learned had been stolen in Pittsburgh.

"He grabbed my brother's rifle and pulled him down," Reihner said. "I stepped back but kept my rifle on him. I told him to just leave."
No one was shot, and the criminal - implicated in one of the other break-ins - is now in jail awaiting trial. [h/t KABA]
