    21 year old living at home shoots intruders

    There are a few questions remaining... but so far, it looks like they young man protected his father and "his father's wife," By getting dad's gun and shooting one of the three invaders... The other two drove off, but were apparently apprehended later.

    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    Atta boy!
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    There is an ADT security sign at the door. It just shows how security systems are sense of false security. I am glad the homeowner was not hurt

    They are not a false sense of security, they are merely one layer. I understand your sentiment about how it is fallible.

    Good for the son. Definitely earning his keep!

    This is why I have started carrying my home defense gun on my hip or very close by when I am at home. You just never know.

    21 year old saves family from 3 intruders, killing 1

    Saw this on another forum today.

    Father of 21-year-old who killed intruder: ?One young life is lost? | khou.com Houston

    Stories like this are why I will be buying a gun in 8 months when I turn 21. I can't imagine what would have happened to this mans mother and father had he not been armed.

    edit: realized this is wrong forum. mod may delete thread if you wish.

    It amazes me, that given the current gun "control" controversy that these incidents don't get more national attention. This is more common than many think, and luckily most result in successful personal defense with no one being shot. In any case, another example of why we must fight to retain our 2A rights. Thanks for posting.

    We need more of us to post these stories...

    Maybe make a forum where all these kinds of stories can be posted, then linked to FB or twitter, etc. We need to get the word out people...

    They don't make the news because the media will never show anything pro gun

    Good: Immigrant family's home invaded - 1 dead, 2 suspects in custody.

    The report takes longer than the incident itself, apparently. Good reporting. If only we could see these on the network news......
