Badass Korean War Vet Sleeps With a Gun Under His Pillow, Kills Home Invader with a Single Round
As much as we all appreciate the men and women of law enforcement, there are a couple popular sayings among those who choose to exercise their Second Amendment rights:
"When seconds count, the police are just minutes away,"
"I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy."
These points are no better illustrated than by Don Lutz, an 84-year-old Korean War veteran living in Pennsylvania.
It was around 1:30AM on Friday when Lutz awoke to the sound of breaking glass. He retrieved his gun from under his pillow and went to investigate.
As Lutz entered the dark hallway of his home, he saw two intruders breaking in through his front door.
Although the 84-year-old ex-soldier happened to be a former champion weight-lifter, he found himself in a precarious situation. These home-invaders not only outnumbered him, but had the strength associated with youth as well.
There was no time to call the police, no way of negotiating with these criminals. As Lutz confronted the invaders, one of them charged.
"You do what you have to do." Anyone with a healthy instinct for survival and self-preservation will recognize the validity of Lutz's statement.

Chalk up a win for the law-abiding American community. Thanks to Lutz, that's one fewer brazen thug out on the streets. Perhaps the survivor will rethink his choices.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
