    Thumbs up ~92 year old veteran kills home intruder with a .22 caliber rifle~

    A 92-year-old World War II veteran shot and killed a suspected home invader who broke into his Kentucky home Monday morning. Two other men believed to be involved in the botched home invasion are lucky to have escaped with their lives and are now behind bars, WLWT reports. According to police, 24-year-old Lloyd Maxwell broke into the elderly man’s basement after 2 a.m. and then entered the first floor of the home in Verona, Ky. The homeowner, identified as Earl Jones, said he was startled awake by noise coming from his basement and grabbed his .22 caliber rifle and steadied his aim on the basement door as he heard the sound of footsteps creeping up the basement stairs.
    When the intruder kicked in the door, Jones fired one fatal shot into Maxwell’s chest, police said. After firing the single shot, the homeowner called his neighbor, who then contacted the police. By the time police arrived, the burglary suspect had gotten away. However, soon after arriving at Jones’ home, law enforcement in a nearby county received a call about a man who had been shot close by. Kenton County police responded to the call and found Maxwell dead inside a 2011 Chevrolet Impala with two other men.

    They took his rifle! That's BULL ****!
    I agree, you should loan him a rifle until he gets another one or his is returned.
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.
