WA: Two Homeowners Defend Homes, Spur Gun Sales
After two cases of homeowners in Western Washington shooting intruders in the last week, local gun shops say it's not uncommon to see an uptick in gun sales, as people worry about home invasions and look for ways to protect their families.
Early Thursday morning, a father in Shoreline shot an intruder in the leg as his wife and kids hid in a back bedroom inside their house. One week before that, an 80-year-old woman in Snohomish County shot and killed a man who broke into her home in and stabbed her husband.
