. . . uses it to stop a home invasion. And this “hothead” did it while in a wheelchair.
Mark Sikes, an ex-Army MP who now uses a wheelchair, was at his home. He heard a noise from the vicinity of his front door.
Then he saw an intruder in his hallway.
Sikes reached over and took his 9mm pistol out of a nearby drawer. He raised it.
The would-be burglar saw this and decided to “exit stage left” immediately. That was probably a good decision. Ex-MPs generally can hit a man-sized target at fairly close range.
Sykes lives in Georgia. Just think how “wonderfully” this would have all turned out if Sykes had lived in NYC or Chicago – where legally owning a pistol is virtually impossible unless you’re a cop or have “connections”.
