Weasel Zippers has a story from my backyard. A group of thugs breaks into a home. One of them was armed with a handgun. The homeowner grabs her rifle to protect her and her daughters. She fires, the thugs flee. Had she not had the gun, she and her daughters might not have been alive by the time the police arrived. Instead, there are three in custody, and a family safe. WXYZ has the details.
