Stupid as it might be in a life-or-death situation, I'm not sure I could use a gun in a house because I'd be worried about the backstop.  But I'm definitely on the side of the gun owner in this case.

Obviously, swords bigger than a gladius are more of a hindrance inside of a building...

Authorities arrived to find a man lying in the front yard with a gunshot wound to his pelvis.

Damn. Went for the dick shot.

 You'd be more worried about getting hacked to death and do exactly what this guy did.

Or you'd get hacked to death.

Either that or panic-fired before bringing the barrel all the way up, or missed a leg shot. But if he did think to himself "I'm gonna shoot this guy's dick off" I wouldn't blame him.

Two items for sale. Gun, rarely used. Sword, like new.

No, I'd run the fark away and let the cops deal with it.  FFS, being attacked with a sword in my own home is NOT something high enough on the risk assessment list that I'd have a concealed firearm while lounging around the house.

And if I had to protect my wife or kid, I'd take a chance with the selection of medieval weaponry I have in my collection... assuming I wouldn't just use an improvised weapon.  A sword is lousy protection against something heavy thrown at your head.

But mostly I don't have any crazy people visiting my home who might try to kill me.

If I get shot by a guy with a sword, well, I'm pretty sure there's nothing in the world that would have prepared me for that outcome.

I think, at this point, "samurai" swords have killed more poor white trash than they have actual samurai.

Yep.  It was not an uncommon concept for a while, but they never caught on because they combined a gun and a blade in a really, really shiatty gun/blade.  I think I'm justified in not preparing for a gun/blade scenario.

And if you're cleaning up a family member's blood because you shot them through an interior wall, that's fine, right?

You ammosexuals are weird.

12ga w birdshot.  Not as useful across the yard, but just fine for in the house.  Highly unlikely it goes through both sides of a regular drywalled wall. In my case the drywall is over shiplap so I feel there is even less rush.

If the shot is across the yard, am I really at risk or can I just close the door and call the cops then wait with the weapon pointed at the door.

I'm sorry you lack the capacity to follow the conversation and thought your post was clever.  Maybe next time you'll do better.

How is this guy in custody? America is one of the only countries (up there with Iran and Afghanistan) where you can chase an unarmed guy down, corner him, start a fight, shoot him dead, and then walk away practically with a medal for doing your civic duty.

Would the cops be waiting outside to shoot you?

In a normal country dude would be in prison for attempted murder.

What was the end game with the sword if you know the other guy has a gun and you don't have the jump on him? I mean yeah if it's holstered and you have your blade out and you're inside of a room distance you'd probably have the upper hand. But pointed at you, drop that shiat and walk away.
