    Poll needs help. And a home invasion.

    Local news needs a little help on the poll.

    Do you feel safe with more guns allowed in public?

    WINK News - Southwest Florida

    Here is the home invasion.

    Mother and daughter held at gunpoint in gated community | WINK News - Southwest Florida | Local & Florida

    SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla.- A Fort Myers mother and daughter were still so shaken after Thursday morning's home invasion/robbery, they asked we not identify them.

    "It's terror, terror. Panic and terror," explained the mother.

    The two live in the Beachwalk neighborhood in South Fort Myers.

    Their guard was completely down in the gated community. Like so many times before, the women were just letting the dogs out in the front yard for a few minutes.

    It was around 2am and there was plenty of light from a nearby street light, but nothing could have prepared them for the group of teens running up to them at gun point.

    "They started asking us what we had, give 'em what we had," said the mother, "We didn't have anything on us, so they pushed their way into the house and proceeded to look for small electronic devices, cell phones, money."

    Even with a gun to their heads, the mother and daughter made sure to take a good look at the robbers.

    "You're trying to remember as much as you can remember about what they're wearing, what they look like, their ages, what they can tell the police when they get there," the mother explained.

    The description was so precise, deputies were able to track down the suspects three hours later on Pine Ridge Road, about a mile away.

    The suspects were only 14 and 17 years old. We are not naming them because of their ages, but they're facing a very serious charge of home invasion-robbery which is a felony.

    The other juveniles with them were not arrested because they did not take part in the home invasion/robbery.

    According to jail records, both teen-aged suspects were released to the custody of juvenile detention.

    WINK News has also learned both have previous arrests in Lee County.

    The victims want their story heard so others can learn to keep a cool head and try to remember as many details about your attacker as you can.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Not naming them because of age.If they are men enough to be criminals,why won't the legal system let them be men enough to have their names in the paper?

    It may be the legal system, but it actually sounds like it's the media outlet that won't name them?
