    How would you handle this -- Mob Attack In Home

    I used question having my EDc on me or close by while at home until I read this article on Drudge. The homeowner needs to rethink his home security....what are your thougts on how you would have handled this situation.

    I'm thinking that as soon as they kicked in the door, they would have seen the business end of my AR-15 with a chambered round ahead of 29 other rounds or at least the speaking end of a 12 ga shotgun? Would the AR-15 be going a little overboard?

    I know one thing. When I read stories like this I am glad I live in Ky. Things like that just would not happen here without some very serious consequences. As for your question of whether the AR would be going overboard. In this instance I dont think ANYTHING would have been overboard.

    Cross the threshold @ my house and receive as many 9mm hollowpoints as I can sling. Shotty or AR-15 would be even more effective. I would be in fear for my family's safety and would act accordingly.
    Be prepared for the backlash. The victim didn't even fight back w/ a weapon and is being threatened by thug's family. People get extremely stupid and aggressive when in a group like that.

    What's clear here is that the attackers have NO fear of the rule of law, and based on the actions of the "mother of the juvenile" this is well into its second generation. What absolutely miserable human trash.

    I think the homeowner did pretty well getting his family to safety upstairs, but I'd probably act as the OP suggested... greet the "guests" with a long gun ready. No, I don't think an AR is too much, if there is truly a mob outside and not just 2 or 3 miscreants. I'd prefer the security of 28 rounds and a spare mag in my pocket to 4-8 rounds and slowish reloads with the shotgun. My ARs are also more compact and maneuverable indoors than my 18-inch barreled 870.

    Ugh.. this is a tough one. I don't know if this man owned a gun or not. But even if he did, it sounds like he wouldn't have had time to get it if he wasn't already carrying it. This is another example of why it is not a bad idea to be wearing a gun in your home like I do often.

    I can also say they would have had some difficulty kicking my door down. My guess is that this guy's door had a standard striker plate that just attaches to a piece of trim wood. Not to say a mob wouldn't be able to eventually kick it in, or break a window. But my door would have given me enough time to grab a gun.

    I'm also amazed that the police responded that quickly. They must have already been in the neighborhood.

    I also think whoever it was that hit the homeowner with a pipe needs to face charges of attempted murder.

    I'd thin the crowd with my Mosin Nagant and then go out and buy an AK or AR for anyone that is stupid enough to come back. If I empty the Mosin Nagant and people are still around, those would be some brave/stupid kids.

    Wow. Just Wow. Castle Doc would have come into play. What would the kid's Momma have said then (like I don't already know)?

    Sounds like a job for a GLOCK 9x19 pistol and a 30 round magazine. I would not have gone inside and then went back outside unarmed, there is no reasoning once the pack mentality kicks in. I would have went inside secured the door, secured the family, armed myself (if already armed, grab some extra ammo), and waited inside for the police to show. If they busted in there would be no scuffling only flying lead.

    I am not going outside and I am protecting my family. I put 3" screws in my hinges and doors knob/deadbolt, so it takes a few kicks to open my door(someone tried before and gave up after 3 kicks) So, I would have time to get any of my guns, but I carry at home, so not really an issue

    Stories like this are becoming more common and it does make me think. I never wanted to buy an AR or AK but the decision is being pushed towards need vs. preference.

    I still plan on getting an AR this year, but this is also why I've been seriously considering a pistol-caliber carbine. I like Joker's comment on the 30-rnd 9mm mag, but think how much more effective it would be in a small rifle.

    If he hasn't purchased a gun already then he should. Most likely his wife is demanding they move yesterday!
