I'm not surprised the home owners were arrested. They failed to hit the other two.

well, if we were allowed to own multiple shot shotguns on a shotgun licence, the farmers could have up to 8 shots at burglar. Of course, with an FAC licence, you can own a multi shop semi auto. In the US , Mossberg sell the PERSUADER, a multi shot pump action with short barrel . It is intended secially for intruders

No doubt they were paler than Anders and therefore incapable of keeping a gun under control.

in Texas you get fined for missing, or not killing on first shot. Walmarts sell shotgun slugs, a big lump of lead that will stop any burglar.
