What Happens if You Break Into a Home with an Armed Homeowner?

You stand a pretty good chance of being shot. The Mount Airy News > Monday shooting leaves man dead

He broke into this home before. It seems he owned the home at one time. Did that lead him to believe he was entitled to something? He didn't own the home recently.
The homeowner, identified as Jayme Gullatt, told investigators that he was in bed asleep when he heard a loud thud. He then picked up a .223-caliber rifle and walked outside to investigate. Gullatt said he saw Jones on a ladder coming up through a window.

After after being confronted, Jones came down from the ladder and began to advance on the homeowner, according to his account to officers. Gullatt fired two shots into the ground as a warning, but when Jones kept advancing he was shot at close range in the chest, with the bullet apparently passing all the way through Jones' body.
And it is clear that this member of the journalism profession (so-called) knows next to nothing about guns.

The DA will decide if self-defense is legal in North Carolina.

Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. Self-defense is a human right.
