Was a bad time for them.But remember you have the right to protect life and property.If just because you pay taxes and want to be safe in your home, you will always be a target with out a way to protect your-self

Even if he would have had time to get a gun.... there is always that chance he would have been shot... Im sorry but I would rather have my parents robbed then be shot while trying to stop a robbery.

I think you have somewhat of a point however if one can get to a gun fast chances are the robbers would leave just knowing they might get shot. The bad thing about soem crooks is that they aren't always satisfied with just stealing. They often like to hurt people and sometimes even murder them. I'm glad this couple is ok.
