Libtard Headline : "Two More Deaths Caused By Gun Violence", CNN-Piers Morgan-Liberal Left Wing-Nut Propaganda. The criminal act of breaking and entering while armed won't be mentioned, except as a footnote to be added later as more "Gun Violence", only the Effective Armed Response will actually be Demonized. Liberals suck at telling the truth about anything, especially when it flies in the face of their Ill Conceived Gun Grabbing Agenda.

Well, hoping not to be suspected of profiling, but I second that.

And here's my hypothesis.. A 25 year old man and his 2 year old child were in that house. At 25, I'm sure you were both homeowners in Glenmore or Ednam Forest, right?

There isn't a single gun law proposal anywhere near any legislature - federal or state - that would have prevented this person (whom I saw in another news report was a deputy, btw) from having his firearm(s) and protecting his people and property. To imply otherwise is simply dishonest.

Watching people flip out about this is like watching the complete decline of Western civilization where all Reason is lost and everyone thinks its only the other guy who has lost it.

My first thought when reading the headline of this article was that the homeowner was going to be the one dead.... happily surprised that it was the other way around!

Lucky for you, not all, but most violence committed by thugs is contained to specific areas--inhabited by thugs. I’m sure you don’t live in or around Inglewood or other crime filled areas so you don’t have to worry too much about falling victim to “thugs”. Besides they are too busy plotting to “off” one another instead of plotting to do mass murdering sprees in schools. So my point is this, while you all are busy fearing the so-called thug dressed in baggy clothing “looking suspicious”, remember what that innocent looking educated blond haired blue eyed kid is capable of, then get back to me. Idiots come in all colors. SMH

I think the other news report you're referring to was a separate incident that happened in Nov 2011

http://www.nbc12.com/story/16008269/overnight...

There are certainly laws that are/were before state legislatures (some of which passed) which do make homeowners less safe. Restricting magazine capacity makes me less able to protect my home with as many rounds as necessary. When three guys knock the door down and they have guns, I sure as heck wouldn't want a 6 shot revolver!

...other legal gun owners were also able to defend themselves and their family, thanks to the right th bear arms:

When the owner of a private farm returned home, he spotted two men in a pick-up truck trespassing on his property. The men had helped themselves to anything of value they could find in various buildings on the property. The owner armed himself with a handgun and confronted the men instructing them to stop, get out of the vehicle and lie on the ground. One man complied while the other got out of the vehicle and acted threateningly toward the homeowner. When the aggressive man reached into the bed of the pick-up, presumably for a weapon, the owner reacted in self-defense and fired. The man was later taken to the hospital and treated for non life-threatening injuries. Both trespassers face felony charges including breaking and entering, larceny and conspiracy.(Bluefield Daily Telegraph, Rock, WV, 11/6/12)

A 35-year-old woman woke around 3:30 a.m. and checked on her husband, who was up late working on his computer. The couple was startled when their home alarm sounded. The woman’s husband checked the surveillance footage on his computer only to discover four masked men working to pry open a window. One of the men carried a rifle. As the woman dialed 911, her husband retrieved his own firearm. The intruders gained entry within minutes. The homeowner crouched behind a sofa and fired. The intruders returned fire before fleeing the home. No one was reportedly injured.(The Times-Picayune, New Orleans, LA, 11/16/12)

A 35-year-old woman called 911 after a man followed her home from a gas station and forced his way inside through the front door. The woman allegedly ordered the man to leave then retreated to her bedroom. The intruder picked up a knife from the kitchen table and followed her. It was reported that he threatened the woman with the knife and ordered her to take off her clothes. She warned the man that she would shoot him, but he continued to push her to undress. She retrieved a 9 mm handgun from underneath a pillow on her bed and pointed it at the intruder. When he continued toward her, she pulled the trigger. The suspect was fatally wounded.(Santa Fe New Mexican, Alcalde, NM, 11/8/12)

Douglas Downs, 48, was at home with a friend, 36-year-old Andrew Boyd, shortly after midnight when several armed men broke into his home and tried to rob him. Boyd was forced into the basement before Downs managed to retrieve a handgun from a chair in the living room. Downs fired numerous rounds until the first man dropped his weapon. He then exchanged gunfire with a second intruder. A third intruder appeared and helped his accomplices out of the home to a vehicle where a fourth man waited. Police were later notified that a man with multiple gunshot wounds had been taken to a nearby hospital. All four men were later found, arrested and charged for their involvement in the home invasion. Downs and Boyd were uninjured.(York Daily Record, York, PA, 10/24/12)

Two men knocked on the door of a residence with ill intent. The door was answered by an 83-year-old woman using a walker. The men pushed against the door and gained entry with ease. One of the men stayed close to the elderly resident, while the second intruder made his way into the bedrooms. Fearing for her safety, the woman went to a desk in her living room where she kept her pistol. Upon seeing the gun, the suspect urged the other to “come on.” The men fled with cash and jewelry, but the resident was left unharmed.(The Greeneville Sun, Greene County, TN, 11/2/12)

Actually it was the same event and the story was from WRIC (Richmond), I think, but I'm pretty sure that it was one of those premature reporting things b/c I saw no other reports of this specific event that referred to it being a member of law enforcement. So dismiss my earlier comment as internet rumor or whatever.

On the subject of magazine capacity, just look at it this way - if you end up limited in mag capacity for any ONE of your guns, take it as an excuse to buy more! "Sorry honey, I just had to buy more guns..."

you could also just buy 50 10 shot clips,, now if you are i true marksmen you only need one bullet per intruder, three guys at my door? a six shot 38sp. is plenty, my wife with the AK is last resort

This America, is why everyone should have a gun in your home. That would break up some of this home invasions that seems to be occuring these days. If you disagree, would you post a sign in your yard saying this home is not protected?

My thoughts as well, but regardless of what they wanted, they sure picked the wrong house to go find it.
