Two more innocent Ohioans' lives protected with a gun

Columbus' 10TV is reporting that when three armed men invaded a couple's home in a quiet east-side neighborhood, the homeowner was able to protect his life and his wife - because the criminals weren't the only ones with a gun.

From the story:

    Cynthia Davis said she had just gone into the basement of her home on
    Picard Road when she heard the back door being kicked in, 10TV News

    "I guess God sent me to the basement right at that moment, because I
    would have been sitting there when they kicked the door in," Davis said.
    "I had just been sitting on the couch there moments before."

    Davis' husband, Frank Watson, yelled to her to stay downstairs and call
    911, 10TV News reported.

    Watson, 60, picked up his gun and started towards the men. When he saw
    the burglars, one of the men opened fire, police said.

    "Nothing was taken," Davis said. "When they saw Frank with a pistol, he
    scared them off and they started to run."

Mr. Watson was wounded, and taken to Grant Medical Center in serious
condition. Again, from the story:

    Davis told 10TV that her peace of mind and sense of security is gone.

    "I think tragedies of this type don't happen in specific socio-economic
    neighborhoods any more," Davis said. "If they're happening in this
    neighborhood, they're happening everywhere."

Although he was wounded, Mr. Watson can be glad he survived. Unarmed victims are often much less fortunate.
