Intruder fatally shot by Montana homeowner (VIDEO).
You don’t really hear stories like this get very far in the media. Gee, I wonder why? It’s probably because they don’t want you to ever think that a gun could be used in a GOOD way. Nahhh. That’s probably not it. It’s only because guns are only used to kill innocent people, right?
“The suspect was later identified as 39-year-old Tobias Ian Bishop of Missoula and apparently had a long criminal history, which expanded over at least two other states and included burglary, assault and drug-related arrests.
Bishop also had active warrants for theft and forgery charges. Prior run-ins with law enforcement indicated that he was prone to violence. Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman said that they believe the man was involved in at least one other nearby burglary that morning.
The incident is still under investigation and no charges are expected to be filed against the homeowner.”
So this intruder had a long history of criminal behavior including assault, burglary, and drug-related arrests and the homeowner acts accordingly to protect himself, his family, and his home. I don’t see a problem here. Actually, I commend this man for exercising his right to self-defense and to bear arms, but what I am more impressed with is that the article didn’t blow things out of proportion and make this another story to promote gun control. Kudos to Montana!
