    Good - and you never know when it will happen

    Home intruder shot after threatening man, kids with knife

    You never know when you will suddenly be involved in something else going down near you.

    I think I'd leave with a claw hammer coming for me... but still, daddy needs to rethink his home defense options.

    3 shots, 3 hits. Sounds like a good day for the good guys.

    Poor victim selection skills.
    Dad does need to improve his home defense options.

    Dad's lucky nobody was hurt in his house. A claw hammer is better than nothing, but I don't prefer to get that close to a home invader.

    maybe part of 'no child left behind' should be currant affairs from around the nation.

    these classroom reports could be brief--who--did what (how old they were, recent police news containing their name and alleged deeds ); what--they are being talked about for going now; when--they are alleged to do what they are being discussed about now; where-- they are alleged to have done what we are talking about now; and why did they do what it is that they are alleged to have done most recently.

    start each day with these 'notices' followed by penalties for those discussed earlier. let it be that all future graduates know how it is for those who go against the system with violence.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    It always makes me happy to see when armed citizen's are not charged.

    Claw hammer is better than nothing. Not everybody has or wants guns. Self defense is self defense. It worked for him. Worked even better for the guy in the car.

    Did you notice the 'birdbrain' with the funny hat on..."Who's going to create a crime on an island?"
    Nice shooting on the part of the second victim, but I'll bet the first victim looks into getting a firearm and a permit NOW!

    Yeah,,

    What a piece of work she was.

    Gladys Kravitz's had more sense than she did!!!

    I agree, Dad needs to update his weaponry arsenal.
    Could have ended badly, had he not reached the hammer,; and even if he did, what if BG was a determined crazy and went for the kids anyway?

    But a gun in the home is a danger to the children!!

    People need to take on the responsibility, get themselves & their families educated on firearm safety & use, & protect themselves.

    Not having a gun in the home puts the children in danger.
