A homeowner in Guinda, Calif., defended himself when a duo of would-be burglars broke into his home on the night of July 20, 2021.
The homeowner had returned to the residence midday on Tuesday and noticed that some tools and a firearm were missing, which made him suspicious. Later that night, around 9:00 p.m., the homeowner noticed headlights in his driveway, and he wasn't expecting visitors. With the early warning of the uninvited guests, the homeowner had time to retrieve a firearm for protection. He then waited inside for the intruders to make their move.
As Lt. Gary Hallenbeck of the Yolo County Sheriff's Office said, "He didn't not go out and confront these people. He stayed in the house, and eventually, these people came into the residence." After a short period of time the two robbers, a man and woman, broke into the residence where they ended up confronting the homeowner. The homeowner defended himself against the intrusive duo with several shots from his gun. The man was mortally wounded by the shots while the woman survived in critical condition. Authorities said the homeowner has cooperated and that the firearm used was legal for the state. (foxnews.com, New York, Wis., 07/22/2021)

Alerted when she saw a strange car drive up and the occupants knock on the door, a 19-year-old woman got a rifle and hid in a bedroom closet. When the men broke through a cellar door and entered the bedroom, she stepped out of the closet, trained the gun on them and ordered them out. They fled.
