Three masked men broke into the North Carolina home of NASCAR legend Richard childress on, who shot at them with his gun, authorities said Wednesday.

Childress on told the police that he is of the opinion that the only reason that he and his wife were here today was because of God and the Second Amendment,” WCNC-TV reported.

An alarm in his house that sounded like someone broke a window with a door knob, the Greensboro News & Record reported, quoting a press release from the Davidson County Sherriff’s Office.
