TX: Three burglars shot dead breaking into home

Houston

This just happened this morning and just hit the web, so details are few:
Four men broke into a home in the 1800 block of Amie Michele Lane off Sheldon Road near Wood Road sometime Monday morning, Gonzalez said. A gunman inside the home opened fire on the burglars, striking all four, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Three DOS and one taken to hospital.

"gunman inside the home" is technically accurate description, but a bit...odd.

To me Gunman means somebody that knows firearms and can be considered more than just competent!
However MSM has made it mean thug who barely know which end the bullet comes out of!
MSM=propaganda orginization!
Government, like fire is a dangerous servant and a fearful master
If you ain't paranoid you ain't paying attention
Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war let it begin here- John Parker

Poor criminal thugs. 3 innocent victims slain in horror while 4th innocent is fighting for his meaningful life in the hospital. Will he survive? Or will he leave a widow and 20 li'l hungry necks behind? Full blue anti-gun story at 11.

FWIW, good defensive shot by the homeowner. Didn't get hurt, got all 4. You don't hear that often. Kudos! And thank you for taking 3 of the garbage bags to the dump for us. Very appreciated.

Funny how the anti's say nobody needs "high capacity" magazines... until 4 badguys break into your home. High capacity shotgun?

According to that link, it's the homeowner who was also shot and is in serious condition.

According to one of the articles, it was a mobile home/manufactured housing. Which answers some of the questions that came to mind when I first heard about this incident.
- there is no real cover, and effectively no concealment, in a trailer; particularly if the owner is not averse to blowing holes in his own property.
- an intruder won't necessarily know the layout IN DETAIL, but you can bet the resident does. He knows exactly where the intruders will be.

Used a shot gun.

Biden’s favorite.

Very deadly.

So far not high on the banned list, but just wait.

Does not allow much criminal rehabilitation.
