    Nasty Tucson Home Invasion

    Just saw this on KVOA 4 local news; no story on the net yet, so far as my limited searching abilities revealed.

    Looks like 6-10 BG's, armed and with body armor, invaded a upper-class home in a ritzy neighborhood. So far as I could tell (story caught my attention midway through), nobody died and nothing was stolen. Very strange. Obviously not your average home invasion. Maybe a hit that ended up at the wrong house? Makes the idea of an AR-15-style carbine for home-defense a bit more appealing.

    Obviously curious to see if more develops on this one. Can anyone do a better job of searching than me? I assume an AP story will show up soon on this one.

    6-10 BG's with body armor? Very bad and odds are very much stacked aginst you.

    This sounds way to orginized to be an act of burglary in an occupied dwelling.

    Saiga 12 gauge loaded with slugs might offer some more power against vests.

    Seems to me that one would notice three cars full of strangers in vests with long rifles pulling up in your driveway.

    I'd like to know more about the BG who could coordinate 9 other BG's for a raid like this.

    It sounds like organized crime robbing a independent operator on their truff
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Hmm, yeah, not surprising, given Tucson.


    Still haven't found a story.

    Aim for the head. Good Z-day training.
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

    Would a drug gang hitting the wrong house want the hassle of live witnesses being able to identify them?
