Authorities said an intruder repeatedly banged on exterior doors and windows around a home in the community of California, Maryland, after 11 p.m. Friday before forcing his way inside through the front door, TheBay.net reported.
What happened next?
As the intruder entered the residence — which was occupied by three people — the homeowner confronted him, after which a struggle ensued, the outlet said.
But the homeowner had a distinct advantage over the intruder.
The homeowner, you see, exercised his Second Amendment rights and was armed with a handgun — and wasted no time using it, either. During the struggle, the homeowner fired the gun at the intruder and struck him in the upper body, TheBay.net reported.
