BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Police say a Glynn County homeowner was forced to shoot a man who tried to rob him.

Around 11 p.m. Saturday, police found the suspect, 45-year-old Anthony Don Devine, suffering from gunshot wounds to the back and buttocks in front of a home on Poplar Street. Investigators say the homeowner responded to his doorbell ringing twice. The second time, Devine allegedly rushed the man in the door. The man fired several shots from a .45 caliber handgun then called 911.

Devine was taken to a hospital in Savannah. The extent of his injuries was not immediately released.

These stories don't fit Piers Morgan's or the rest of the main stream media's agenda! But the more we publicize incidents like this, the more people will accept the importance of responsible gun ownership in our lives. All of these stories are compiled and tracked at http://www.rationalityreboote? just for that purpose.
