Elderly homeowner kills violent invader on rural property. On today's Armed Citizen File, Ginny Simone speaks by phone with Bradley Harvell, 82, of Liberty County, Florida, who was at home alone when Octavius Barnes, 24, burst into his home holding a realistic toy gun and using a medical device similar to a stun gun to shock him. Harvell handed over the money that he had in the house, but when Barnes demanded more, the homeowner managed to reach a .357 Magnum that he had in a cardboard box and shoot the assailant twice, fatally wounding him. He explains that the gun had not been fired in 20 years, but his son had been keeping it clean for him.
