The right of self defense


Police said a 23-year-old man forced his way into an El Paso, Texas, residence Friday evening and began assaulting his ex-girlfriend, KVIA-TV reported.

What happened next?

However, the 20-year-old homeowner — the assault victim's current boyfriend — told police he arrived at his residence in the 11800 block of Vere Leasure near Saul Kleinfeld and Pebble Hills Boulevard and discovered the intruder assaulting his girlfriend, the station said.

With that, the homeowner put his Second Amendment rights into action.

KVIA said he armed himself with a rifle and ordered the intruder to get out of his house.

However, police said the ex-boyfriend lunged at the homeowner with a knife, after which the homeowner shot and killed him, the station reported.
