H/T Keep And Bear.

Fortunately the homeowner was able to retrieve his gun and fight back a move that saved their lives.  

Food for thought: it is not smart to attack people who own guns. Here’s the thing, most likely, you’ll end up injured or dead if you do try to do so, because our guns aren’t for just for show!

An overnight invasion is being investigated by police near Houston, Texas. The homeowner had just arrived home after work, when he was ambushed by three thugs, who pistol whipped him. This happen around 9:15pm on Tuesday night, when they then used him to get into the home, where the man’s wife and two children were. The children are ages five and six.

The homeowner was pistol whipped and his family was forced to lie down on the floor.

The men were looking to rob the victim, but police said at some point the homeowner was able to get his own gun out to defend his family.

One of the suspects was shot in the head, while two others are still on the run.
Police rushed to the scene on Cliffmarshall in northwest Houston, where this all unfolded as a man returned home from work overnight.

Once the homeowner had ahold of his gun, it was game over! The group exchanged gunfire, and while none of the family members were seriously harmed, the intruders were not so lucky. They jumped in a pickup truck and drove off. However, Houston Police Lt.,  Larry Crowson, stated, “About 30 minutes later, we received a report of a male at the hospital off of 249,” he continued, He had been shot. We believe it is the suspect from this shooting. He has been transported to Memorial Hermann in critical condition, but he is expected to survive.”


Sounds to me like the good guy with a gun won this round against bad guys with guns.
