    Last of 3 gunmen convicted in violent home invasion in Va. Beach


    SNIP

    The gunmen would rob each of them before they fled. They would sexually assault two women and shoot one man through the chest and head.

    ....

    The gunmen had come to the wrong apartment.

    If they come to my house, they have made a serious malfunction in their planning. I may get shot, but I won't be alone.

    Couldn't they come to my house by mistake?__YES__. Couldn't they be given an address similar to mine?__YES__. Am I ready to deal with handgun, + assault rifle, + shotgun carrying home invaders?__NOT SO MUCH!!
    I need to re-think my preparedness!

    Very bad situation. That's why they should have guns stashed throughout the house, even in bathrooms and kitchen. Some BG's would have bullets in their skulls.

    Agreed. These guys are scum. They all should be lined up in front of a firing squad.

    One home invasion is like another IMO, they should enter verticle and leave horizontal.

    So. Gunmen enter the home, and at least one of them has a semiautomatic rifle. Tough situation.

    Even if you can make it to a firearm, it's one against multiple armed assailants, and lots of collateral friendlies in the crossfire. Only defense I can think of is that the entire household has to immediately go on the offense with the understanding that not all will survive.

    Can't speak for anyone else here, but my home is filled with weapons of various sorts - knives, guns, spears, swords, and various others - and at any point in the home there's something strong at close hand. Problem is, I may be the only one trained to use them. This specific scenario is extremely difficult.

    Like the Witchita Horror killings, this home invasion is one in which defense is extremely problematic.

    A terrible crime in which the dirtbags should have all been shot at the seen, but unfortunately none of the victims had the needed defensive tools. Hopefully, all will become 'Bubba dates' for the rest of their lives.

    We are on the same page, reading stuff like this makes me want a vedio surveillance systems with multiple camera's. Not to mention sick to my stomach, life in solitary confinement would be to good for these punks, I'm sure Va doesn't have the death penalty.

    Just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    You have to wonder how many of these people without a conscience are walking around out there.

    If one of the people in the apartment had a gun, which of the three should have been their first target? I just read an article the other day about getting into a gunfight one at a time; how would you order the threats in this situation?
