A would-be burglar got through the front door of a home in south Toledo, Ohio, around 1 a.m. Friday, WTOL-TV reported.

But through the front door was as far as he got.

You see, he joined the rapidly growing number of folks finding the hard way that those forced to endure their unsavory behavior just aren't taking it anymore.

What went down?

Adding to the danger in this incident was a report from WTVG-TV that the intruder was armed with a gun. In addition, WTOL's report noted that the home in the 200 block of Knower Street was occupied by several children when the intruder got inside.

But also inside was a woman who wasn't about to let the would-be burglar advance further — and she ensured that by exercising her Second Amendment rights and arming herself with a gun.

Sure enough, the woman resident fired and hit the would-be burglar multiple times, WTOL reported.
