Don't Bring a Shovel to a Gunfight

The lug wrench also isn't going to do you much good. Mom fatally shoots home invader to protect her 2 kids: Sheriff - ABC News

The suspect, 51-year-old Robert Rheams, was armed with a shovel and a lug wrench when he allegedly forced his way into a woman's home in Hammond around 5 a.m. Sunday, according to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office.

After a "physical altercation" she shot him. He was declared dead at the scene.

Rheams was on parole for armed robbery, and had apparently committed carjacking just before the home invasion.

The homeowner was NOT arrested.

"This case appears to be a homeowner exercising second amendment rights to protect herself and her children from a violent home invasion," the sheriff's office said in a statement. "Once the investigation is complete, the case will be forwarded to the District Attorney's Office for further review."

And since Louisiana has not morphed into New Jersey, unless there is something extraordinary that comes to light, I don't expect that the DA will press charges.

Defense of self, and of family, is a human-right.
