Home defense is home defense....no matter how you slice it. "Unorthodox" methods are for those who have no will to survive.

This dirtbag is lucky he left with his head.
The victim obviously needs a sword sharpening kit.

I don't know that I have ever read the word "smote" in a news item before!

Good job by Olson for using what was available.

BG ashamed of being "smote" tried to say he was shot, which he should have been.

It worked, but I am not in the business of hoping to be lucky when it comes to defending my family and myself. Smitten would(hopefully) be in the news article regarding the BG if it were to involve me!

Governments placed controls on swords long before the invention of firearms. Its the people not the weapon that they wish to control.

I actually have a set of reproduction Samurai swords that are sharpened 440 steel. The Katana is about 42" long and the Wakizashi sword is shorter, about 24". I know a minimal amount of technique in using them.
In the hands of someone adept, these weapons can be deadly, and even with amatuers, the slashing effect of a long sharp sword can cause fatal injuries.
Here in my hometown of Huntington, we had the case of a man who was attacked in an appartment by a sword weilding person. He got slashed across his midsection, ran down the street bleeding profusely and bled to death before EMT's could save him.
This slug is very lucky he didn't get his head lopped off. I could be very easy to do just that with a sword.

Too bad it wasn't a 'real' sword.
The guy was only 17 and therefore couldn't have a gun; I have many 'replica' swords that I have sharpened and made ready 'just in case'. They aren't the first thing I reach for, but definitely would do the job as long as I could get a good strike in.

dry sense of humor.

I wonder if the victims name is Gandalf?

There are no style points. Either it works or it doesn't.
