Disabled tenant threatened with eviction after shooting burglar

SaysUncleA disabled former lobsterman who shot an intruder after buying a gun to defend himself sued his landlord Monday over a policy that prohibits him from keeping a gun in his subsidized apartment.

Harvey Lembo, who uses a motorized wheelchair, was warned by his property management company that tenants are prohibited from having firearms after he shot an alleged burglar in the shoulder after five break-ins.

Didn't we already take this issue to court and win?

A purely private landlord could probably get away with it, but a publicly subsidized one can't.

Assuming the victim (that's the person whose apartment was broken into) has a clean record, we'll little never see a more sympathetic plaintiff for a case like this.
