A resident of Flint, MI was in his driveway when five armed robbers confronted him and tried to rob him.

The homeowner drew his own gun and fired two shots at the group.

He thought he hit one of the suspects, but police have not yet located any shooting victims.

The incident occurred around 9:45pm on April 11th.

Police continue to investigate the matter.

If the suspects chose to fight back I believe the homeowner would have certainly needed more than 10 rounds in his magazine. Fortunately these particular thieves were cowards and were deterred by the mere presence of an armed victim.

How would anti gun politicians expect an 80 year old to defend himself against FIVE young suspects without a gun? Even if they were only armed with blunt objects there is no way an senior citizen (except Chuck Norris) could win that fight without a weapon.
