Do Christians and firearms belong together? Can a person be a faithful Christian and still support the inalienable right to keep and bear arms? We deal with this very emotionally challenged subject at length.

During our weekly Brownells Bullet Points, we will consider supporting business who understand liberty and freedom. Sadly, as we have seen too many times before, not everyone in the Shooting Sports Industry apparently understands the concept of individual liberty in a Republic.

For our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we will once again take a look at being dangerous on demand. One Washington homeowner was forced to be dangerous on demand when he discovered a burglar attempting to break into his children’s bedroom.

A would-be burglar was shot several times by a Washington homeowner after the man was discovered prowling outside the bedroom of two young children, officials said.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said in a Facebook post the man and his wife were sleeping in their home in Spanaway, along with their infant and toddler, when they heard the sound of footsteps outside around 2:15 a.m. and saw an exterior motion light turn on.

“The husband and wife looked out their bedroom window and did not see anything outside; the husband went into their children’s bedroom and saw an unknown man standing in the window well,” the sheriff’s office said. “The husband told his wife to call 911 and to move their children to safety, then he pulled back the curtain and saw the suspect was crouched down with his face within inches of the glass.”

The husband told deputies he was “in fear for his family’s safety” and yelled at the suspect to stop before firing four shots at the man, striking him twice.
