  1. If these assholes got away with it once they will be doing it again. It is time they were met with a couple of rifles loaded and hot. People better have a rifle they can easy access cause home invasion here is happening more than people realize. The cops do the best they can with the limited resources but for each asshole that the cops do take down, another 10 pop up. It is a losing battle here. People need to start defending thier homes in every way posssible. Maybe when one of those assholes enters the wrong house and gets a new game pushing up daisies, then the word will get out we are not going to be victimized by them anymore.

    1. A short barrel twelve gauge auto or pump loaded with double aught buck would be far more practical for close quarters/indoor action. It’s gonna be very, very loud.

  2. Sad part is if the robbers end up unarmed and the home owner shoots them ,I would bet money they get charged. Best to check and find out the liabilities first.

  3. Through the roof murders, excessive violent crime, armed robbery….. Time for martial law in Dumpster Bay.
    Authorities need to kick down doors, open fire and take out these southern gang bast@rds with extreme prejudice.
    If a few die along the way, all the better.

  4. Mr Picture taking Trudeau my guns locked in a cabinet are of no use protecting my family from non tax paying useless pieces of sh#t of society like this . The only government I can rely on is my 45-70 government. For those of you that don’t get it google it

  5. Colorado’s “Make My Day” law gives gun owners the right to shoot and kill an intruder in self-defense if they believe the person intends to commit a crime and use physical force, “no matter how sligh

  6. I certainly don’t want to live anywhere in fear that a knock on my door is a criminal intent on invading my home. I would not want to be holding a gun in my hands every time I answer my door either. What kind of society have we become when it is unsafe to even open a door? My husband has guns but as mentioned they are securely locked in a cabinet and the ammunition is locked in another so absolutely of no use in the event of a home invasion. If we keep a loaded gun in readiness are we breaking the law? I guess the best defence would be some type of tazer or pepper spray but even that has legal ramifications. Burglary in old English law used to be a capital offence but I don’t think our society is ready for that since we don’t execute murderers. Maybe increase the penalties to include a long term in prison would help. I certainly would not want to experience the trauma of killing another person but if absolutely necessary it might come to that if my life was in danger. My retired RCMP husbands 20″ barrel 12 gauge pump loaded with with slugs would likely be the best choice he informs me.

    1. Don’t use slugs.
      Double aught (00) buckshot would be much better. Particularly if you’re unskilled and shaking from fear. Anything in front of you twenty feet away and further will be cut down with no aiming required. Point and shoot nine or ten projectiles with one shot.
      Often, the sound of just racking a round into the chamber is enough to deter most chicken sh!t thieves.

    2. We have some “00” shells and also + we have some riot control “rubber” bullets which would certain knock someone on their ass but my husband is an expert in firearms handling so I will let him do any shooting that needs doing. If home alone I would probably just reach for the Smith &Wesson.
