Another “Guns stop crime” post

Lincoln County Sheriff’s officers are searching door-to-door in east Lincoln following a home invasion early Monday.

According to a news release, a man and his wife on Catawba Burris Road reported they were awakened by the sound of breaking glass around 2:50 a.m.

When they saw a flashlight beam shining under the bedroom door the husband picked up a shotgun. He fired twice after hearing someone grab the door handle.

Authorities don’t know how many suspects were in the house, but said at least one was wounded by the blast. Deputies followed a blood trail out of the residence, down the drive and a short distance south on Catawba Burris Road.

The only thing I can say is that I’d wait for the door to open next time–just so I’d have a clear target. We don’t need any of this chasing down blood trails business. Just a dead burgler who made “…a catastrophic failure in the victim-selection process”, as Massad Ayoob has reportedly said. (I’ve been hoping for a chance to steal that phrase.)
