An 82-year-old veteran, Herbert Parrish, saved his wife’s life in South Carolina after he heroically beat a home invader armed with a knife to death with the butt of a shotgun.

The intruder had forced his way into the couple’s home and then slashed Parrish’s wife with a large knife before the Vietnam veteran stepped in.

As Fox News reports:

South Carolina armed home invader who attacked a 79-year-old woman near her back door is dead after the victim’s 82-year-old Vietnam War veteran husband beat him down with the butt end of a shotgun earlier this week, according to local authorities.

Herbert Parrish snatched the firearm off a wall mount after the suspect, identified as 61-year-old Harold Runnels, broke into the home with a knife, knocked his wife to the ground and slashed her forehead Monday afternoon, Columbia, S.C.-based FOX 57 reported.

He lived in a nearby mobile home community, according to WJBF-TV, and approached by knocking on the back door and asking if the couple had seen a missing dog.

Runnels later died at a hospital due to injuries suffered in the scuffle, according to authorities.

And Biden’s policies would potentially deny the vet the right to have the shotgun on his wall.
