As for the actual facts in this story (at least as we know them) it appears to be a case of a homeowner protecting his property and perhaps his own safety. Now, I admittedly do not know the laws in Ohio, but I would think that this is a perfectly legal thing to do.
I hardly equate "sleeping on the couch" with "lying in wait for villains". I'd also point out that even the truly awful grammar and poor wordsmithing of the reporter still found time to mention that the homeowner "got his gun". Not "drew his gun". Not "pointed the AR-15 loaded with 60 rounds of tacticool zombie ammunition".
Regardless of whether the owner of the home happens to live there full time, he was woken from a sleep while in a property he owns, got his legally owned firearm, and when he saw an immediate threat to his life in the form of someone who was both armed with a lethal weapon and engaged in a criminal acticity, and he responded with lethal force. I see absolutely no issue with his actions.
I always find it so odd when people make a big deal out of situations like this. Burglar with a deadly weapon enters a home and gets shot by the owner. One less criminal walking around. I am guessing he won't have any more vandals anytime soon.
I think guns are like insurance. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
the big deal is, that poor biased journalism is seen by thousands of readers and puts a big damper on 2nd ammendment rights... they see/read that the gun owner is at fault not the criminal
I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
