This is why you keep home defense weapons and keep them loaded.

A homeowner was forced to shoot and critically wound a naked man who attempted to forcibly enter his Louisiana house.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office reports the suspect attempted to break into a home in the town of Zachary early Saturday morning. The homeowner was awakened by his barking dogs, and investigated.

He encountered the naked home invader and warned him to leave the property. The suspect refused and advanced, forcing the homeowner to open fire.

The suspect was critically wounded and is now in the hospital. The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident, but the suspect cannot speak because of his wounds, and it is unlikely the homeowner will be charged.
