An invader broke into an Iowa Congressman’s house, attacked his daughter, and demanded money. The Congressman counterattacked with his bare hands.
Consider, for a moment, that Rep. Leonard Boswell is 77 years old, but he still tried to go hand-to-hand with the armed felon. Brass balls on that one, even though it must be admitted that the criminal was attacking the man’s daughter at the time.
The Congressman’s grandson got a shotgun and the invader fled. It sounds like he hasn’t been apprehended.
When seconds count, seconds count. All the weapons in the world are no good without the will to fight, and sometimes you have to fight with whatever you have. Which might be nothing.
Good on the Congressman for doing what he had to, and good on the grandson for bringing artillery to bear ASAP.
