Eleven-year-old Luis Reteguin is being called a hero after fighting off an intruder in his family's home on the Northwest Side Friday.
A man smelling of alcohol and carried a knife broke into the home at about 1 a.m. and entered Luis' mother's bedroom.
You have to be pretty bold to invade an occupied home with nothing more than a knife. Or you have believe that no one in the house is armed. Either way, I believe Chicago will be a safer place when it's citizens have the right to own handgun.
