Rochester, N.Y. Early Tuesday morning, Christopher Boise heard a noise coming from the basement. As he walked toward the source of that noise, the RIT student noticed two men standing in the downstairs portion of his apartment.
"They were waiting for me at the bottom of the stairs," said Boise. One of them had a handgun trained on Boise.
Within moments, Boise screamed. His cries were heard by his roommate, Raymond Zheng. "It wasn't like a, 'I stepped by stepped on a piece of glass' kind of scream," explained Zheng. "So, I instinctively went to my gun bag." Zheng owns an AR-15 which is a military style rifle.
Zheng estimated that just five seconds passed until the door started to open. It was one of the intruders. "By the time I had it out and ready, one of the men came at my door, slowly opened it, saw that there was a barrel on the other side and from there backed out," said Zheng.
The two men fled the apartment. Nothing was taken and no shots were fired.
The rifle was not loaded at the time of the home invasion, according to Zheng.
"They decided this place was a good place to rob, just a wrong decision on their part," said Zheng. "I'm happy he saved my life. I was very thankful he had his (gun)."
Zheng, who is from New York City, said he uses the rifle for sport shooting at local gun ranges. "The weapon was legal and he protected his property, said Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard. "We're thankful that no one was injured," he said.
Sheppard said there were BBs near the broken glass window. Police are still looking for suspects. If you have any information, contact CrimeStoppers at 585-423-9300.
Criminals always have a way of obtaining weapons and firearms, but the tyrant Governor of New York, “Prince Andrew” Cuomo wants to further restrict law abiding citizens from keeping and bearing arms, all in his quest for the 2016 Presidential campaign bid. Cuomo is dancing on the graves of the Sandy Hook and Webster shooting victims!

EXACTLY SO !
He is using the hot emotion of the moment , not the intellect !
Legislation should be thinking , and intelligent
This legislation was neither !
So if the assailants were waiting at the bottom of the stairs...how did they get past Mr. Boise to open the door to find Mr. AR-15 waiting?
One had a handgun trained on Boise and the other went upstairs where he was met by Zheng and his AR15.
as, yas, there ya go, MSNBC's take!
Too bad the title here couldn’t have read “Local Man Uses AR-15 To EXPEL Armed Robbers “
