According to, a homeowner in New Orleans, LA, who was still without power when this incident happened (Sept 4), was forced to defend his home from looters. The homeowner heard someone trying to enter the home and armed himself. When the would be intruder did enter the home, the homeowner shot them in the face. The bullet traveled through their face and lodged in their shoulder. Police say the intruder is in stable condition.

Keep in mind that during Hurricane Katrina the right to bear arms was suspended by the government during the state of emergency. Fortunately government officials learned from this incident and residents are now able to defend themselves and their homes during natural disasters.
