Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0

Intruder shot, killed by homeowner - Nashville, Tennessee If you break into enough homes, eventually you will find an armed homeowner.

Thomas Tyrone Howery was shot once in the head and died at the scene of a home invasion. A resident then called police to report the incident. I don't know if this is the first house that Mr. Howery ever broke into or not. It really doesn't matter. The odds of meeting an armed homeowner are greater than zero, and you could meet one on your very first time.

I am sure that some of Mr. Howery's family and friends will miss him, but I can't get too upset over a law-abiding citizen exercising his moral and legal right of self-defense.

If you don't want to be shot, a good first step would be to refrain from breaking into homes.
