    Come home with 2 year old in arms, notice belongings disturbed, immediately exit house and call 911. Do not attempt house clearing on your own, sans weapon, with 2 year old in your arms.

    Evidently, these two knuckledraggers have rehearsed this one.
    Last ditch effort, grab baby, make getaway, let kid go and hope you don't get fingered for the invasion.
    Chumps.

    Hopefully in the future, they get sloppier and goof up, and get caught or even better.

    I don't say this lightly, and I'm generally a shoot to end guy. But that's a death sentence in my home. I'm willing to take the chance and shot them anyway. So is my wife. I'm not letting anyone out of my sight with my kids. Period.

    Now they can add Kidnapping to the charges when they find these individuals, and I believe they will find them.

    I'm with you on that one. As far as I'm concerned, if they are heading away from me with a grand child in their arms, the threat is not over, and they are targets.

    That's when you want ammo that doesn't come out the other side of the bad guy. I like my 9mm Hornady Critical Defense in that situation. I like it period, but especially in that situation.
