"It was money well spent. Even though I didn't get to fire it off, I don't want to harm anyone."
One man in Chattanooga Tennessee is thankful he had purchased a handgun just days before his family woke up to find some unwelcome visitors in their home around 3 am in the morning. One suspect came in armed with a tire iron while the other armed with mace tried to burglarize the home.
The victim claims that the sound of him cocking the handgun putting a round in the chamber scared off the would be attackers but not before they sprayed him with the mace.
