Or A Good Reason To Carry At Home

A capital murder suspect who busted out of a jail in Mississippi last week tied up a family at a home in Vicksburg Thursday morning before one of the homeowners broke loose and killed the intruder, investigators revealed.

Police said the unnamed homeowner shot Rafael McCloud in the head. The entire encounter lasted roughly three hours.

McCloud fought with the husband and wife, stabbing the man in the shoulder, Vicksburg Police Chief Walter Armstrong said. The wife also had injuries, but not enough to go to the hospital. The toddler was not hurt.

At some point after being tied up, one of the couple managed to get a gun they had at the home and shot McCloud, the chief said. He did specify exactly who got free and how they did so.

It pays to be prudent and keep yourself safe. Exercise your 2A rights. It is called life assurance if used properly. I don't know if this homeowner has a CCL or not.

Here's a story with a happy ending and a good example of why EVERYONE in the household, when they are old enough of course, should learn how to use the weapons in your home.
