    Second home invasion This time, tenant prepared.

    Two armed men climbed up to his balcony at 4 a.m., kicked in the door.

    He got his gun and fired at them, one of them shot back, tenant's girlfriend grazed in foot by return fire.

    Interesting that he's been a target twice...

    Story here

    Edit to add another story here: http://www.khou.com/news/local/Suspe...229671431.html

    Oh, and they must have corrected the story a bit because this was the original lead in:

    Resident opens fire as crook tries to break into NW Harris County apartment ... someone kicked in the patio door then fired a single shot from an oozy-type gun
    OOZY- Type gun? Is that from Ghost Busters?
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    "Over here in Texas we fight back."

    Well, with a few notable exceptions, nearly every state has stories along these lines and can make that claim. And it's becoming more frequent around here.

    They must have corrected it from Oozy to Uzi when they realized that none of the residents were quoted as saying, "He slimed me!"
