NJ: Resident kills home invader with invader's own gun

NJ politicians are hard at work making sure this is the only way a righteous citizen can get a gun to defend himself:
The intruder allegedly arrived at the residence brandishing a semi-automatic handgun and a fight erupted with the man who lives at the home.



Police say that during the altercation the resident was able to get control of the gun and fired — hitting 29-year-old Terrence Coulanges, of Old Bridge, who died later at an area trauma center.
The two were acquainted, so there might be more to this, but as reported, sounds like good job on the part of the resident.

N.B. : NBC New York reported this as an "unwanted visitor" and are taking a mountain of barn leavings for doing so. Possibly they were just trying to be funny but they aren't getting any breaks on this. Warning: language in some of the replies:

New Jersey will probably prosecute the homeowner for having a stolen gun!

Well, the anti-gunners always did say you shouldn't carry a gun because someone will taek it away from you and use it against you. I guess they had to be right at least once.
