What would you bring to a fight? A machete or a gun? After you read this you may change your mind!

Another story I reported on Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115:

There's an old adage. Never bring a knife to a gunfight.  But what about a machete?

That's what one Sarasota Florida man did. And won!

Three men - one armed with a rifle - burst into the yard of a Sarasota man and attacked him. He grabbed a piece of lumber and started fighting them off.

Lt. Brian Gregory is with the Sarasota County sheriff's department.

"Some people cower, some people run, some people fight," Gregory says. "In this instance here, he chose to fight. It was his home, his prerogative and he stood up for himself."

Then he dropped the wood and picked up a machete.  The two unarmed guys ran.  But he managed to subdue the man with the rifle and hold him for police

"Most of the time the best thing to do is put yourself in a safe place rather than attack," Gregory says. "But  you have every right to defend yourself."

Cops now want to know why these guys targeted this man's house.
