People wonder if using a pistol in self defense is ever an issue that is relevant to today. It most definitely is!
Just after midnight earlier yesterday there was an invasion by a man into a small home in Kewanna, Indiana. Police say that Michael Righter age 41 attempted to enter the residence and kill the couple inside. The woman inside the house is currently going through a divorce with the armed intruder.
Thankfully the homeowner named Camron Vawter a 34 year old man also had a pistol. He woke up when Righter was crashing the front door down. Vawter confronted the intruder, shot him in order to disarm him, and then called 911.
People always taint the law abiding gun user as a “Yosemite Sam” if you will, toting his weapons around and harming everyone around them.
This is one of the many recent times in which a gun owner used his weapon lawfully and correctly to defend his life and the lives of those around them.
Vawter shot the man, THEN called 911. Imagine if he had waited on the police, this story would not have such a happy ending, especially considering the intruder was armed. Righter was flown to South Bend hospital and is listed in critical condition.
