    I can't wrap my mind around the idea of sleeping without locking the doors! The locks on my house are only unlocked for about 45 seconds per day- when I'm walking thru them to go in or out. I lock them behind me in both cases. Obviously a lock can be broken but not quietly as a rule.

She told the dispatcher that she had a shotgun and revolver and asked should she use them to defend herself. The dispatcher told her that she could not tell her what to do but she needed to do what she needed to protect her and her baby. She had the couch pushed up against the door and bad guy number#1 who was armed a hammer and a butcher knife and when he got through the door he was met by some 12 gauge buckshot. Liberal news media painted it as a tragedy that could have been avoided, right thinking people praised her for defending herself and her baby. I heard one comment that went "well how do they know that bad guy number#1 had violent intent?" Well you don't kick someone's door down late at night with a hammer and a butcher knife when your out collecting for the red cross.
    I heard about that! I praise the poor woman for what she did! She protected herself and her baby, she is not a sheep!

    Violent crimes can happen to anybody. Any home can be invaded. Obviously most people on this site have measures in place to defend against a couple of stoned teenagers randomly and sloppily breaking into their homes, but that's because most people don't have anything valuable and live a politically correct and boring life that wouldn't warrant a serious break in.

    My point is that your comment was unnecessary. There's no need to make fun of victims of crime. If virtually anybody had a stretch of bad luck and ended up being targeted by real criminals, then they (possibly you) would be made to look like a sheep.

    Lock the doors, have a dog, have an alarm, have a 12 gauge and a .45, because all of those things are useful, but have some class too.

    Now what would people say if they shot them as the guys were leaving after not hurting them? Would that be justified or seen as unwarranted since hey were leaving?

    Fantastic response. I am so sick of people here (and on other sites) using the old, tired, "sheep, wolf, sheepdog" mantra. Most of them are simply self-important boobs "I'm a sheepdog, that would never happen to me". Anyone, anyone can be a victim of a violent crime. It doesn't matter how many guns, dogs, alarms, secured doors, etc. one has; no matter how good you are, there is always someone out there better than you.

    Many of the "sheepdog posters" are the same people who make claims like they only carry to defend themselves and their family, wouldn't open the door for someone who seemed to be in legitimate danger, etc. Guess what genius, the sheepdog's job is to give up his life for the sheep.

    Not everyone is capable of using deadly force, even if they have the necessary skills (which most people don't). People who don't have the mindset and skills to kill are better off unarmed. Making fun of innocent victims of violent crime is immature and in very poor taste.
