Excellent story. What a nightmare those people lived through. Thank God they had a gun in the house.

they are lucky to be alive, too often with home invasions the occupants are taken completely by surprise. by then it is too late or if they do try to resisit they often end up brutalized or dead :(


"get down maam" ... odd, almost sounds officer like :rolleyes:

Trauma and nightmares for years no doubt after that. Glad she made it. I know her husband would never be nagged again about having guns in the home.
And 14 minutes for the police to respond to a shooting in a home invasion? It takes them only 3 minutes to come to the resuce of banks however.

There's a good example of why it is foolhardy to keep all your guns in a safe, unloaded, with gun locks in them, and the ammo in another safe in a different room. It would have left them totally helpless in that situation. Also, 14 minutes for the police to arrive is better than the typical time of 45 minutes, but far from what is needed. Strange that there was no reason given for the invasion.

"But I will tell you that if you read this story and still choose not to take action to protect your own life then you should not expect anyone else to take action to protect your life either. If we do not stand up for our Second Amendment rights to own and use guns for our own self-protection, then you should expect the criminals in our society to win."

They are lucky to be alive, they are scared from the trauma physically and mentally but they are alive. The only time my gun safe is locked is when we are not at home. I always keep a gun on me or beside me at all times while at home.

I have used the underlined phrase above before and will again if the opportunity presents itself.

it's not weird ... criminals have been emulating police tactics in home invasions for years, the same can be said of carjackings. So what is a person supposed to do when a group of men clad in black bust down your door in the dead of night? :confused: or when some lights flash behind you on a quit road in the dark? :confused:

take their chances that it may be the police? :(
