Despite being shot himself, an Easley, SC homeowner, who is confined to a wheelchair, was able to even the playing against a much younger, healthier, armed home invader.

The homeowner was able to shoot and kill a 26 year old intruder from Atlanta, GA who broke into his home.

According to Greenville Online,

When deputies arrived, Vernon and her daughter were in the driveway calling to them, the report says. The deputies moved them to a safe location and entered the house, authorities said.

They found two men in the living room with gunshot wounds, according to the report.

Boseman said the 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. Brown was taken to the hospital where he went through surgery for non-life-threatening wounds, Boseman said.

To the anti-gun crowd who thinks real men don’t need guns to defend themselves, what would you tell this gentlemen? Guns are the ultimate force equalizer.

This is the 31st defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of South Carolina and the 1,195th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
