Lesson of the Day: Don’t Try to Use an Axe to Rob a Homeowner With a Gun

On Sunday morning, a homeowner in Burlington, North Carolina heard a commotion at his door.  When he looked to see the cause, he saw 29-year-old William Lawrence Cowan trying to break through the door with an axe with an axe he’d picked up outside the home.

The homeowner immediately retrieved his shotgun, which he pointed at Cowan, who decided that shotguns trump axes.

Cown fled, but was arrested soon after without incident, which is much better than what could have happened to him if he’d made it through the door.
