After three months of having his business burglarized on a regular basis, a California business owner decided to fight back with his legally permitted firearm.

Darin Fowler had tried fencing and security cameras to prevent the break-ins, but when he continued to lose product he decided to stay overnight to try and catch the perpetrators. In the early morning hours of Fowler heard a noise and confronted the burglar with a handgun.

According to Fowler, the potential thief was very compliant when he saw the gun, and waited quietly for police to arrive and take him into custody. It’s just amazing how something as simple as having the ability to protect oneself and one’s property stops crime.
