Default How NOT To Defend Your Home!

Saw this on my local news,very idiotic:

- A case of mistaken identity landed a local man in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Investigators tell TV5 that at around 1:45 a.m. Monday, a 36-year-old Saginaw Township man shot through his Bradford Drive door when he thought he was being robbed.

Saginaw Township Police Lt. Martin Larsen said it turns out the person at the door was the homeowners friend, who was hit twice in the stomach. That 43-year-old man's identity has not been released.

The homeowner was taken into police custody and has not been arraigned.

It's not clear what charges, if any, will be brought against him.

Residents in the area were alarmed at the shooting.

"It's kinda scary to be happening around here, it's a real quiet neighborhood, not a whole lot goes on around here at all," said Tim LaBrake. "Occasionally there's a traffic stop on the street, but that's about it."

I'm sorry but anyone at my door at 0145 is not welcome until identified as a friendly. I don't want to hear about anyone being shot but I think their may be more to this story then we are hearing.

my first response at a knock on the door at 145am is grab a gun and ask who the eff is out there with 911 on speed dial. blasting thru the front door isnt #1

Perhaps he thought the door was angry at him and was trying to rip itself loose of its hinges? He just needs to switch over to some of that frangible ammo to prevent over-penetration in the event of another door attack.

Even the castle doctrine or hold your ground policies still indicate that your safe location must be no longer safe, because a BG is INSIDE. Even if a crazed lunatic is beating on my door with a sledgehammer, the only thing I imagine I would be doing is making sure my firearm was ready to go when he actually breeched.

A single body part inside my home and I am sending the first volley.

"I didn't have a weapon until a month ago," said Drake.




I wonder if he's put a light bar on top of his pickup truck yet?
