Home Owners Injured in Violent TX Home Invasion

An intruder died and his victims were harmed during a violent home invasion in northwest Tarrant County, TX late Saturday night. Police said the criminal demanded money after breaking into the house in the 9200 block of West Fork Trail near Eagle Mountain Lake around 10:30 p.m. When the residents said they didn’t have much to give him, a struggle ensued, during which the home owners were injured and the criminal was killed in self defense.

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.
