VIDEO: Gunman Picks Wrong Victim – See Shootout

( – Second Amendment rights are vital for Americans in today’s United States, just as when this nation was founded, as evidenced by a new case of a well-prepared homeowner using his concealed carry firearm to fight back and chase away armed invaders.

You can watch a video of the shootout further down this post.

In a Saturday night incident in Southern California, a homeowner bravely confronted two home invaders, engaging in a gunfight that led to the assailants escaping without any loot.

Chilling security footage captured the moment when one masked assailant, brandishing a firearm, rushed toward the Los Angeles homeowner as he approached his front door at about 7:30 p.m.

In a swift act of self-defense, the homeowner produced his firearm, sparking an exchange of gunfire with the intruders.

“I guess they decided to try to come at me and come in the house, but I have a five-month-old baby and a wife and a nanny in the house and that wasn’t going to happen,” the homeowner recounted to ABC7 Eyewitness News Los Angeles.

“There was nothing in my house that was worth dying for. But I was willing to die for my family,” recounted the man who asked for his identity not to be revealed.

The surveillance video shows the homeowner nearing the front door to retrieve his keys when suddenly, two intruders leap over the gate.

As one invader rushes toward the front door, the homeowner tosses aside his tea, draws his weapon, and begins to fire.

“Out of nowhere, I felt someone run up behind me, put something to my back, put a pistol to my back, and somebody running up,” the man recalled.

The gunfire prompted a quick scattering of the intruders. One returned fire and jumped over the side fence, while the other vaulted the front gate and fled.

Following the incident, the family reported the ordeal to the LAPD.

“It’s a matter of time before these people get caught. I think they should just pick a new career before they do end up in jail,” the homeowner said.

A report by KTLA points out that his home is located in Central Los Angeles, in a neighborhood that has been seeing a growing number of daytime burglary cases.
