Headline: California Homeowner Shoots and Kills Armed Home Invader, Wounds 2 Others as Children Have Sleepover.

The homeowner grabbed a weapon after three armed men tried to break into his home and opened fire. The homeowner was shot by one of the suspects, but he managed to shoot all three suspects.

Funny how this isn’t on the front page of every news source today – a man defends a whole slumber party of children against home invaders firing guns.

Thank goodness he was able to protect everyone. God bless our Second Amendment! We need to share stories like this as far and wide as we can.

Seems to me that it is front page news if a bad guy creates a massacre and then, as some do, kill themselves. But not if a good guy stops it.
