    A warrior like this should avail himself of a gun. Maybe now he will...
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Home invading thugs like this are a menace to society and having them jailed until they are old and grey, if not shot during their crimes, is the only cure.OMO

    The justice system will fail in punishing these scumbags enough to do any good, they'll just do something more sinister when they get out in a few months.

    But then he saw an opening... and took it.
    Circumstances can present themselves in the ugliest situations. Apparently he kept his head enough to recognize it when it came 'round. Good for him and his family.

    Sadly, I'm sure the thugs'll use more duct tape next time.

    Hooray for the homeowner! Too bad he didn't finish the job. They'll be back at it after 6 months or whatever the nice legal system throws at them. By the way, why aren't Al and Jesse all over this one? After all, weren't the BGs victims of profiling?

    See? People don't need guns to protect themselves. All they have to do is put up with a little duct tape, rope and hope for an opportunity to increase their odds of living up to 50/50 after about an hour or so. Happy all turned out with the good guys living though. Could have turned out better. Maybe next time, (now that it's already too late to prepare for the first time) he will have a 12 ga. waiting for them when they do their vengeance run.

    Pain hurts though. Don't it dirtbags?

    They'll be back, and smarter than ever... jail/prison... it's like high school/college for criminals, only every one of them gets a free 'scholarship'.

    Too bad he and the wife didn't have guns....then there would be three less thugs in the world. Those types are a drain on society. I am sure someone is going to gritch, but it would be better if the three "teens" had been sent to meet their maker.

    Sheriff's officials say an hour into the ordeal, the homeowner turned the tables, grabbing a kitchen knife and stabbing two of the young men, both 16 year olds, who then ran from the house, waking neighbors in the process.

    "Sounded like a female voice," says Manny Vega who lives nearby. "Might have been one of the assailants running in pain after having been stabbed."
    I couldn't help but chuckle a bit when I read that last line above .... sounds like they were not expecting the owner to respond in the manner in which he did. Good Job though...... a good example of "fighting mentality". Sounds like the neighborhood is applauding him. Surprised though, no quotes of the parents saying " they are such good boys".
