Three armed home invaders broke into a house and beat up the resident before pushing him into a closet, not realizing it was a weapons storage area.

Briar patch comes to mind.
Broke into the wrong house, huh?
Didn’t realize the story was in Texas, reported in the NY Daily News. Much different outcome if it happened in NY.
reminds me of the times some thug would beat up David Banner, and would then naively throw him into some closet or something.
I just love a happy ending.
Not unlike the great thinking criminals who attempt to rob a bar, only to find out it’s a cop’s bar! Gotta love them great thinkers.
They missed the part about EVERY closet had guns in them.
Texas has the Castle Doctrine. The homeowner (victim) got beatend up by the three armed men, yet the article said “The burglary victim struggles with his emotions after he shot a home invasion suspect ...”.
If it were me, I won’t be, because after the perps get out of jail (hopefully for a long time), next time they will not simply lock the homeowner(s) up in a closet.
If there are guns in the “cupboard”, just think what this guy had in the Safe!
Are there mortars in the medicine cabinet?
Bazookas in the pantry?
Inquiring minds want to know!
Because he couldn’t go through his shirt ripping pants stretching routine right in front of the thugs.
The outcome would’ve been the same or worse for the bad guys in this NY house.....
That is probably injected by the press to try and show how using guns make people feel bad. I doubt he feels bad, I know I wouldn’t.
Well, having to shoot a guy, and possibly kill him, is a serious thing, even if you are legally in the right.
The way I read that is the homeowner is trying to keep his grin from being too big and to stop high-fiving everyone that stops by. (I didn't read the article. . .why bother, it is too much fun to comment anyway).
Sounds like the article was written by some liberal weak “reporter” that assumes that everyone that shoots someone, under any conditions, will be struggling with angst and such. And if the homeowner did tell the reporter he was struggling, it was to appear like he had a heart and was "forced" into shooting them. . .lest the newspaper and ACLU go after him for the shooting.
Well, this is Texas we're talkin' about ;)
Enter at your own risk.
You broke into the wrong...rec room!

I’d be afraid that my laughing would screw up my aim.
I have guns in a couple of areas within my house to ensure to quick access if needed.
I am happy that the resident was not hurt. God bless Texas!
he should have been shot 7 times
