The low life got of to easily, he should have been DRT. He should have sent the scumbag off to never never land with a face full of bird shot and saved others from falling victim to the low life POS predator.

First let me say I am glad they are all safe..

I am curious though..What was his stand on gun control before this? I know the stance of many Democrats is More gun control...Is his the same?

It would be Ironic if he favors more gun control..

Looks like these liberals are trying to make heroes
of themselfes by embellishing and exaggerating the entire chain of events.

Too bad it wasn't a band of illegal Mexicans or domestic gang bangers doing a real job.

Liberals put illegal Mexicans and gang bangers on a pedestal and liberals need to be exposed to reality.

Liberals such as the Boswells are hypocrits.
They want to take firearms from law-abiding citizens, yet they have rooms-full of shotguns, and only God knows what other types of weapons.

Too bad the grandson did not unload on the robber, home invasion, armed, demanded money, that one was bought and paid for.

Voted NO on decreasing gun waiting period from 3 days to 1.(Jun 1999)

Rated A by the NRA, indicating a pro-gun rights voting record.(Dec 2003)

National cross-state standard for concealed carry.(Jan 2009)

Teach kids Eddie Eagle GunSafe's lifesaving message.(May 2010)

Ban gun registration & trigger lock law in Washington DC.(Mar 2007)
