NASCAR legend Richard Childress praised the Second Amendment after opening fire on three home invasion suspects.

Childress told North Carolina’s Davidson County Sherriff’s Office (DCSO) on Sunday that the only reasons he and his wife are still “here today was because of God and the Second Amendment.”

According to the Greensboro News & Record, an alarm inside Childress’s home “tripped when someone broke a window by a doorknob.” Childress responded by grabbing a handgun to investigate and ended up opening fire on three suspects.

The suspects were caught on surveillance cameras and the DCSO said, “The three suspects, all of whom had the majority of their faces covered, were carrying what appear to be firearms.”

Childress and his wife were not harmed. He is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the “arrest and prosecution” of the three suspects.
