Gun owners stop individuals crimes from progressing (mostly) and are able to protect themselves as a result, but this doesn't actually lower crime rates overall.
Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.
Some people never learn....glad that the owner was injured and calm in such a serious event.....
Damn. Two 15 and one 16 years old. Usually the term is used by media to stir up feelings when they're 18-19.
I get what you all are saying. I'm a firm believer in stupid games win stupid prizes. It's just a sad and tragic waste of life. They had their whole lives ahead of them. I feel this way, having so many nieces and nephews. I can't imagine how the homeowner feels to take such young life.
Where were the parents? Getting mixed up with the type to do breaking and entering and robbery doesn't just happen overnight.
Look at the Chicago shooting numbers:
Never makes the news really at all.
It takes a Viking to raze a village.
if the left and its media were really concerned, they'd run PSAs telling young people they could very well pay for their mistakes with their lives. what's lacking is any personal responsibility. Now this poor homeowner has to live with this for the rest of their life. tragic.
While it is sad that the three kids are deceased, I find it difficult to have any sympathy except for the homeowner. He will forever live with the consequences of being forced to defend himself.
Listening to the family member it is easy to understand where the kids got the idea that armed robbery would be a good career choice.
Hopefully there are a few who will see this and choose a different career path.

"No charges have been filed" WTH
Who are they going to charge? The three perps are DRT.
As far as shooting all three of them, their intended victim had no way of knowing how many were armed when he removed the threat.
MY RIGHTS DON'T END WHERE YOUR FEELINGS BEGIN
The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
Man, I hope that the homeowner has some kind of deadly force insurance! It sounds like it will cost him all he's got to beat the rap on this one!

This is Georgia...not New Mexico. They can charge him it they want...but they will not get an indictment.
This guy walks away from this with no criminal charges and he will likely get by without civil charges, as well.
However, he will not escape the psychological ramifications and he will have to move.

Bad decision by 3 individuals who met a bad ending. They should show every little wanna be thug the autopsy pictures so you learn you might think your a badass but dead is dead. A predator with a gun at 15 is just as dangerous as one at 25. Bad decision, bad shots and outgunned, result failure.

Just remember, When seconds count help is mere minutes away
Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.
I'm really hoping for some gunship video from a neighbor's surveillance system or Ring doorbell
I was born a gun owner, it wasn't a choice, I didn't become one later in life...I was born this way
