You don't see this type of story much because it does not help advance the agenda of those that want to disarm us. It is always to see an exception to the rule.
But as I said, the homeowner – for security reasons, he declined to be interviewed or identified by name – didn't shoot. Instead, he shouted at the suspect to stop, at which point the guy ran out of the house. Shortly thereafter he was caught and arrested by the police.
As a side note I am glade they caught the BG because in letting him go there is a chance that someone else will become another of his victoms later. Lets just say that is the down side of not taking the shot.
