    There really needs to be a 'complete' investigation, one that can tell us why all home invasions cannot end in this same manner.
    This homeowner was prepared to protect his family and his home...

    I feel for Mr. Yoder. I hope he and the 11 year old have little of this affecting them long term. Glad he was prepared and able to defend what is his.

    As far as the BG, too bad. I guess he is no longer a threat to anyone. But, I am sure it will come out that the reason he was doing bad stuff is because he got kicked out of church for singing too loud in the choir.

    so the homeowner had several felony arrests yet he still had a firearm? I doubt this story will end happily. Hopefully, he had no felony convictions or he will most likely be spending more time behind bars.

    As has been said I hope Bane and his son come out of it ok. This does make one less criminal that the poeple of the area have to deal with. And i saw on another article that his mother is already spreading the word that Yoder was a really good guy.

    I am glad the father and homeowner was able to defend himself against this burglar.

    I hope that the homeowner does not get in to trouble for having and using a firearm due to his past. This is a major reason that I think that once a felon, especially a non-violent felon has done his time, he should get his rights back after completing his sentence. If he is too dangerous to possess a firearm, he should not be released in the first place.

    More and more I am becoming a fan of once you've served your time, ALL of your rights are restored. If it is not safe for you to own a gun to rightfully defend yourself, you shouldn't be allowed in public.

    Yeah I figured this was coming. With past drug offenses with the intent to distribute, bad guy that broke in was probably looking for drugs

    Yup.

    Even though he happened to have had earlier run-ins with the statutes and was technically barred from the ownership of firearms, he still retains every right to defend himself effectively in such situations.

    I, too, am a strong believer that our penchant for labeling folks and partially stripping them of rights for life doesn't agree with our standards as a nation of citizens, nor does it reflect an appropriate level of control of the worst-of-the-worst felons while appreciating not all "criminals" are of the same breed. If they're so violent they are to be barred for life from possessing arms, then by golly they shouldn't be allowed to roam the streets as free men. But if they're not so violent as that, then IMO there's little justification for lifetime bans of anything on such people, since they've been deemed to have paid their debt per the basic sentence and are now released into society as ... at least it should be ... free citizens, again.

    Considering that they found no drugs or evidence of him dealing drugs, perhaps he had cleaned up his life and was just trying to raise his son?

    Looking into my crystal ball, I see a No Bill on the shooting. But I do see possession by a felon charges sticking. A GOOD DA would drop the charges, and if not, accept a plea with recommended sentence of time served, since he was arrested and spent time behind bars on the charge.

    violent felons and ones using weapons in commission of crimes SHOULD lose gun rights for life. non violent felons could be restored after a period of time/or with time served.

    Prison time is just one way of punishment for crime, not the only one. That doesn't mean that there aren't separate concurrent/consecutive punishments, such as restitution, community service, probation, loss of voting rights, loss of gun rights etc... I do think violent felons should get much harsher sentences, but even when they do their time, that doesn't necessarily mean their complete punishment phase is over. They should lose gun rights for life.

    They did not know if the home owner, Bane was convicted of a felony. Glad he got the BG off the street without running up a bunch of medical bills for the tax payers to pay.

    With all the charges against Bane and no convictions, I will have to go with "informant".
