    A fairly straightforward reporting of a crime, without the stupid, politically-motivated biases and prejudices so often applied to such situations. And they didn't even identify the specific address/name of the victim. Good reporting, I'd say.

    Kudos to the citizen for standing up against crime. Hopefully he hit both of them and they'll be in custody soon.

    Shot back, returned fire--both imply the burglars fired also. Not the best wording.

    Despite all the stories/myths about havint to let them enter first, FL law protects residents from those "attempting" forcible entry.

    well the way are house is if they come in through the front they have to go through two doors. So my wife knows as soon as they come in the first, start blasting.

    "They" are usually wrong. That's why we need to know state statutes as well as possible.
    "They"--if living in FL--need to read this:

    776.013 Home protection; use of deadly force; presumption of fear of death or great bodily harm.—
    (1) A person is presumed to have held a reasonable fear of imminent peril of death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another when using defensive force that is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm to another if:
    (a) The person against whom the defensive force was used was in the process of unlawfully and forcefully entering, or had unlawfully and forcibly entered, a dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle, or if that person had removed or was attempting to remove another against that person’s will from the dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle; and
    (b) The person who uses defensive force knew or had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry or unlawful and forcible act was occurring or had occurred.
