    Another criminal in favor of gun control

    Armed Burglar Meets Armed Homeowner CBS St. Louis

    FENTON, Mo. (AP) A 24-year-old man is facing charges and recovering from a bullet wound to the leg after a home break-in near St. Louis.

    Authorities say a 59-year-old Jefferson County resident was awakened at 2 a.m. Tuesday to find a burglar with a handgun in his home. The homeowner pulled out his own gun and fired two shots. The burglar ran away.

    Authorities say Richard Bates showed up later at a hospital. He was treated for the leg injury then taken to jail and charged with burglary and two gun charges.
    Bates is jailed on $75,000 bond and does not yet have a listed attorney.

    When I read the title I thought you were referring to lautenberg from NJ.

    I wouldn't want to be the guy that took the picture of the guy holding the gun at the camera with his finger on the trigger.

    Only a sarcastic reference to one of the biggest anti-gun idiots in Congress. Lautenberg (or "Lousenberg" as my NJ/NY area friends refer to him) was responsible for a Federal law which removes firearms rights from anyone ever convicted of ANY crime of domestic violence, even misdemeanors.

    This is about 5 mins from my house.

    Too bad the homeowner didn't have better aim.
