Two men approached a woman in the driveway of her Houston home this week and jumped her, according to ABC news. Her husband heard the commotion outside, grabbed his gun, and put one of the would-be robbers in the hospital.

At about 10:30 p.m., the unidentified man exchanged gunfire with the two robbers who approached his wife in their driveway and attempted to force their way into the home, the story says.

Neither resident was injured, but one of the robbers was shot in the head and transported to a local hospital in critical condition. The other robber fled the scene on foot.

This goes to show that, even in your home, its important to have a self-defense firearm readily available.
