    5th time in 2 weeks: Detroit homeowner kills one invader; police seek 2nd suspect

    Another Detroit homeowner successfully defended themselves against 2 invaders. This is the 5th home invasion in 2-weeks time in Detroit where a homeowner has used a firearm to decisively stop the threat. In this case, the homeowner put one down hard, and an accomplice got away.

    FYI: In most of these recent home invasions, there have been multiple invaders. Usually 2, but in one case there were 3 of the little weasels.

    We play for keeps here in the D. The number of gun owners in the 313 and surrounding burbs increase almost daily.

    I imagine folks are rethinking the utility of a PDW/SMG, given such clear cases of do-or-die, multi-perp home invasions and robberies.

    Bummer that the claim by the anti-gunner politicos is that they're uncommon and, thus, not justifiable in the hands of just anyone. Of course, if the ludicrous $200 revenue generator were erased along with the 1934 act that criminalized untaxed possession, they'd be far more common.

    Keeps the habitual jail population in check, and is truly a happy ending!
    A couple more years of this, Detroit might be a decent place to live!

    Glad to hear they're all ending well for the intended victims..........bad guys in Detroit apparently don't watch the news, or learn from others mistakes.

    De-arm the populace and those people would be dead while the robbers roamed free, arm the populace and they are able to defend themselves. Our founding father's would be pleased.

    If that was the case the crime rate would be lower, by default.

    Glad to know that people aren't afraid to defend their homes as well as their own lives.

    It's a shame the reports end up telling the story about how the BG's are teens or very young adults.

    It's good to hear the police are backing the homeowners too!

    So, how many does it take before the rest start to rethink their career choices?
