Call me cold-hearted but I have a problem with this:"One of the three suspected intruders was hit by multiple gunshots, said Rues. When police arrived they found him sprawled outside the front door.
Flown by helicopter to Hollywood's Memorial Regional Hospital, he was listed Monday in serious condition."
Helicopter rides are for heroes and hospital stays aren't cheap. Let him bleed out where he lay.

The first clue was to NOT go out the door when you see the other houses in the area all have lights on.
Guys wife must really love him, huh?
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans
Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I don't know how to be violent

It sounds like when he saw them, they quickly rushed him and he didn't have a chance to do much else but 'protect' himself and his family.
If I had no power and no one else seemed to have the problem, that really wouldn't be that unusual around here .... stuff happens all of the time to lines, etc.
So, I would typically go out to see what it was. I also have 3 dogs that would instantly tell me not only if someone is there, but where they were specifically, and two high lumen lights to make it look like daylight outside. And, I'm always armed.
But, if I knew someone was out there hiding behind a car..... I'ld be staying inside and calling the police ...

Congrats to this home owner.
The homeowner's daughter said she was also baffled. "Why us?" she asked.
It's because you have 'stuff' and the dirtbags want it...pretty simple.

Gun Free Zones are totally effective, and 100% safe ... (wait for it) ... (wait for it) ... until a bad guy with a gun shows up! Then suddenly, you have an uncontested Kill Zone of defensless sheep, patiently awaiting their turn for the slaughter.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Glad things turned out OK for the homeowner! Too bad he didn't get the other 2 perps as well. Like others have said, I'm always armed, but even so, I'm NOT going outside if my power suddenly goes off and I see someone lurking in my driveway. I'm calling 911 on my cell, having my wife grab her .40 Beretta PS4 Storm and grabbing the 870 as well! If they break in, they will wish they hadn't. If they stay outside, the police can deal with them when they arrive.
