    Seems to me home is a pretty dangerous place to be now days.

    Awareness of assaults like this should really make folk rethink how often they carry, when they carry, and where they carry

    Home invasions are one of the most heinous crimes.

    The invaders should be eliminated with extreme prejudice.

    It appears that they are bringing the ole' street pack mentality to a home near you these days.

    It does absolutely no good to ccw everywhere you go when outside your home, only to take the gun off and put it away when you get home when something like this happens.

    People say what are the odds of being a victim of a home invasion? Probably not much different than needing the gun you carry when outside your home.

    The bottom line... If you own or keep guns for self protection, then they need to be with you at all times. It does you no good in a bedside gun vault on the nightstand, or in your main safe when some thugs come to kick your door in.

    A case here recently has me a bit baffled, since our laws say .... if there is an intruder at night into a home that's occupied, then it's assumed the intruder knows it's occupied and intend to do the occupants harm, which translates if they are shot by the homeowner, it's self -defense.

    Yet a woman who works at the jail, who lives alone, wakes up to a man leaning over her in the middle of the night.... she grabs a baseball bat she has by her and beats the crap out of him. Now, she's facing charges and was fired from the jail since she's technically a sheriff's officer. The intruder is unknow to her and has a rap sheet that includes different rapes.

    She may have been better off , shooting him. People should be able to legally protect themselves, and should.

    I agree. While I may not have the .45 on me, it's on the table next to me when I'm at home.

    A blitzkrieg home invasion has a high probability of success and, if executed well, a low risk of death or injury to the attackers. Strategically speaking it's a smart plan; and that's the most disturbing part.

    I agree. And it is disturbing.

    And I would say that most of them are not expecting a salvo from a hi-capacity weapon to come hurling at them as they come through the door. I would say in most cases, it would cause an immediate retreat on their part, leaving whatever dead or dying compatriots piled up on the threshold of your doorway.

    Once inside your home, there's probably a fifty-fifty chance as to whether they will stay and fight or try to retreat, figuring that once inside, there's still a chance they can over power you. However, if you start dropping them at the doorway before they've even penetrated your living room, they will likely retreat and flee while the gettin' is good. Which is why it's in your best interest to at least harden your outer doors and make it a serious effort to gain entry. The longer it takes to kick down your door, the more time you have to counter-attack.

    But you can't mount such a counter-attack if you don't have immediate access to an appropriate weapon or doors and entry points at least resistant to moderate or heavy force.

    Let me get this straight. Are you saying she is in trouble because she beat the crap out of him instead of blasting him? Ridiculous if true.

    Or, is there something about her status as a jailer that somehow alters her legal right to protect herself? Also stupid if true, but ....
