    Elderly cancer patient defends self in home invasion...

    Criminals, recently out of prison, invaded the man's home. One was armed. The homeowner struggled with the armed marauder, and was able to get his own gun and shoot the thug.

    They were after prescription painkillers.

    It happened in Minnesota, which apparently does not have a "true" castle doctrine law (according to the article), requiring a "reasonable man" standard instead, even in one's abode.

    No 'true' castle laws. What's a wheelchair-bound invalid supposed to do, peel out backwards 'til he hits the wall? Nobody should have to take one for the Gipper, no matter what the statutes. Hopefully he's doing okay, after the invasion. I hate seeing innocents preyed upon by these soulless predators in our society.

    I'm certain there will be no charges against the homeowner... but still... Any "reasonable man" can see that armed thugs in your home call for armed self defense with extreme prejudice.
