The media rarely reports the times when guns are used in self defense. Also, the so-called assault rifles has been demonized heavily. But, guns, when properly used can save lives. One such incident where a gun potentially saved a life recently was in Tennessee.
A man credited an AK-47 for saving his life last week when he stumbled upon two burglars inside his Memphis home.
The anonymous homeowner said he shot and killed the men — 17-year-old Demond Barnes and 28-year-old Azell Witherspoon — after retrieving the gun from a hall closet during the incident Friday. Memphis homeowner kills two burglars with AK-47
Granted, the two burglars maybe (highly doubtful though) wouldn’t have been violent. However, personally, if someone breaks into my house I’m going to assume bad intentions.
