Florida Man Shot During Invasion of His Home

Tampa, FL police say Christopher Clabeaux was shot in the neck during an early morning home invasion in the Citrus Park Apartments. His friend, a 20-year-old woman was stopped in the complex parking by two armed men who forced her to take them to Clabeaux’s apartment. Once inside the apartment at 8102 Sheldon Road deputies say they hit one man in the mouth with a hammer and the other shot Clabeaux point blank in the neck. Clabeaux was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in critical condition. The robbers then stole a safe and a woman’s purse. More information here.

In the above situation, and countless others, innocent people have been harmed by the action of a criminal. Had there been an armed, law abiding citizen in the area, tragedy may very well have been averted. Americans use guns for self defense every 13 seconds, and that is perhaps the best reason to have a gun. These people are certainly glad they had a gun for self defense.
