    "I can't blame him. I'd shoot (an intruder) if he was in my house," said Evans, who added that she had given her pistol to a friend but now plans to either ask for it back or buy another one.

    That's the right attitude to have !

    The article...

    Police: NW Houston resident fatally shoots intruderBy DALE LEZON Copyright 2009 Houston Chronicle
    July 16, 2009, 11:52AM

    A man was shot and killed in a Spring Branch home this morning in what police believe was a case of self-defense.

    Shortly before 7:30 a.m., paramedics received a call that a man was wounded in the 9000 block of Kerrwood, northwest of the intersection of Hammerly and Bingle.

    Police on the scene say it appears the dead man was killed trying to rob the modest wood-frame house, which has a visible security camera installed outside.

    Neighbors said crime has increased in the area in recent years, mostly break-ins and burglaries.

    "It's disturbing, but there's nothing you can do about it," neighbor Terry Vick said, referring to what happened today.

    Ginny Evans, who has lived in the area for less than two years, said she was stunned by the shooting.

    "I can't blame him. I'd shoot (an intruder) if he was in my house," said Evans, who added that she had given her pistol to a friend but now plans to either ask for it back or buy another one.

    "It's real scary, and it's sad," she said.


    No arrests have been made and authorities are still on the scene. No other information was immediately available.

    I'm a backwoods bumpkin who lived in Houston for five years (never quite did get used to it). It's about as wide-open (re: dangerous) as any major Metro in the U.S. The GOOD news is that "most" of the law-abiding residents are pro-gun, believe in individual resposibility, have the law on their side & have learned that when seconds matter - the police are only...minutes away. Sorry for the circumstances, but glad the victim was prepared & prevailed.
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

    Looks like the BG's will never learn, they keep trying and slowly but surely they are getting out of the crime business and into the funeral biz. One business boom, creates another for the undertaker.
    Never argue with idiots - they'll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
