Investigators say Wharmby [homeowner] grabbed a shotgun just as two men entered his home. Police said one of the men was armed with an AR-15 assault rifle, and there was a gunfight in the kitchen. Wharmby suffered a gunshot wound to the face, but police say he was able to fire several shots at the suspects, hitting both of them.That is some will to fight and live, there. The story gives the impression that he was hit before dealing the shotgun justice. Don't let anyone tell you that this was a situation where he was shot because he chose to defend himself. Someone breaking into your home with a rifle (or any firearm) isn't there to discuss politics. I hope the homeowner is ok and I'm thinking the surviving suspect is going to prison for a long time since he will be charged with the murder of his accomplice.

Homeowner puts up a solid fight
It's your worst case scenario. Why would you want a long gun for home defense? What kind of crazy person would think they need an AR-15 for self defense? Well, the kind of person that wants to be prepared. I just saw this story on the news. Bad guys breaking into homes with an AR-15? I'm sure they don't care if homeowners are home and aren't there to cuddle.
