A father was forced to confront a burglar on his porch in front of his children one Wednesday afternoon in New Hampshire. Upon pulling into his driveway, he found a stranger standing on his porch, without evident intention. Once he realized the man was trying to break into his home to steal his kids’ bikes, however, the armed dad was forced to act.
