I have no idea where you stand on the gun control issue. My wife and I both are ready to protect ourselves and our loved ones. A man in Algiers did protect his family with a gun. They are all fine but the bad guy will never take up arms against an innocent family again.

According to WWL the Algiers couple were enjoying their patio when a masked and armed man approached them and demanded money. The gunman ordered them inside where the couple's three girls were. The oldest is 14 and the youngest two years old. Once they were inside the husband was able to retrieve his gun and fatally shoot the intruder. Had he not been armed things could have been much worse. No one except the gunman was injured.
