Texas Family Kills Guns Down Home Invaders With Their Own Guns

Or as Sarah Palin calls it, "trash day."

With Kellie Hoehn clinging to the weapon's muzzle, her husband tackled the man who held the shotgun. She knocked the intruder in the head with a jar candle, giving her husband a chance to wrest the shotgun.

By then the tussle had spilled out onto the front lawn. Keith Hoehn shot one of the men who had a pistol, police said. Wounded, that man ran away.

Then the intruder who initially had the shotgun charged Keith Hoehn.

Kellie Hoehn told The Dallas Morning News that she screamed at her husband, "Shoot him, shoot him, shoot him."

Her husband fired the shotgun and the man fell to the ground. Then the shot man lunged a second time.

"Well, I shot him again, and I guess that was it," Keith Hoehn said.

Over at The Atlantic, a certain blogger just launched an "investigation" demanding that the Hoehn's provide DNA to prove that they are the parents of their children, and paperwork showing that the home is really their own.

Between this incident and the Joe Horn affair, I hope that would-be home-invaders get the message: if you invade someone's home (at least in Texas), you will probably be shot.

Seems like you've got Yankee community organizer problems.

Wow. That was the first time I've ever had a comment from Olbermann. ;-)

Deleted it, lest someone get the idea I tolerate such things.

Had a similar thing happen in Killeen TX outside of FT Hood when I was stationed there... two scumbags broke into a buddy of mines house and went after his wife... (we were in the field and they, the scumbags knew it) They chased her into the bedroom thinking they'd be having a 'good time' but when they got in there, she had been 'playin possum' and whipped out a .357 magnum that she knew and liked to use... score, Good Guys 2, Bad Guys, Zip. She shot 'em both DRT and the Chief of Police gave her a "Marksmenship Award" for saving him the trouble of a trial and jail... I LOVED living in Texas for stories like that and this... Even the Libs should too... just think of the taxpayer savings on this!

Fabulous news, thank God that couple wasn't killed, and that there is one less piece of garbage in the world.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
you may not defend yourself

guns are for criminals
just hope police show in time

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
prosecute citizens

when they kill home invaders
threatening their families

absurd thought -
God of the Universe thinks
women shouldn’t carry guns

their attackers and rapists
don’t deserve their brains blown out

Kellie Hoehn said,"I am not happy that someone is dead....".

I am. Home invasions are vicious, violent crimes. The non-violent variation is called “burglary”. The reason these criminals armed themselves was to leave no witnesses. (My cousin his wife and 12 year old son were murdered in a home invasion in 1981.)

Exterminating this scum is, in my view, a public service. Does anyone believe that had the invaders been successful, they would have retired? If so, you are mistaken. The data in the NCVS and FBI murder statistics say they would continued until apprehended. Usually, they get caught trying to sell the items they have stolen.

As Americans we have the right to defend ourselves. If you are the head of a family, it is an obligation. I have flood lights, motion detectors, an alarm system and two large dogs (63 and 85 lbs). If intruders get past all of that, I will set off the alarm, call 911, and attempt to get my family and pets out of the house. Should someone try to stop me, I will empty my shotgun first then my Model 1911. My wife, who is a better shot than I, will also be armed. Lives will be lost.
