    There must have been some very valuable stuff in the house to have 10 people involved in the robbery.

    ............couldn't have anything to do with gangs or drugs, could it?
    i've never seen numbers on the subject, but i'd surmise that most home invasions do.

    From the first link

    “The victim became frightened and yelled at the suspect that he did not belong in her home, then returned to the living room and armed herself with a gun,” the statement said. “The suspect approached the victim and, fearing for her safety, she fired once at the suspect, striking him.”

    From that discretion it sounds like she's gonna be in a lot of trouble. Especially in a state like CA.

    How does a $1 million arrest warrant work? Like the one issued for the ten gang members?

    I highlighted the part that should save her.
    Had she got the gun and gone hunting for him, then I would probably agree with you.

    When I read articles like this, artificial mag restrictions boil my blood. 'Tho that did not play a roll in these three home invasion stories, it's painfully obvious that it could have under different circumstances.

    Here in my neck of the woods just a half year or so ago, 8 people planned and carried out a home invasion in which one of the home occupants fought back with all he had - his hands. He was murdered in his own bedroom.

    So here's to all my fellow liberals who want to clamp mag size - you are wrong wrong wrong. Criminals will find a way. Law abiding citizens will obey the law and may very well loose their life because of it.

    End of rant.

    Thanks, I read that backwards. I thought she went up to him and fired but he approached her. Very different.

    I do not think robbery was the motive. The family was beaten, and the perps were gang members. That was a gangs way of sending a warning message. It is quite a common tactic in gang country. it is terrorism to force compliance. Gangs don't send ten men to do a home robbery.

    Glad to see the homeowners able to defend themselves, even in Kommifornia. Hopefully they will be able to stay out of jail.

    Hearing more and more about home invaders wearing ballistic vests. I'm thinking the 500 S&W is becoming more appropriate all the time for home defense.
