If someone is only looking to use the gun as a scare tactic then yes, every single member of their family is at risk the minute that porch door opens.

    That's basically where I'm at in bold. In the deep south we tend to have paned glass doors in our homes, if someone is willing to punch through it's nothing to get to a deadbolt and lock, from my perspective I personally couldn't take the chance.
    You are relatively secure, in that instance I would take the chance on the police, but trust me I'd still be armed.
    That's my thinking. In fact a lot of houses have a less reinforced back yard from what I understand, this well could have been the case.
    well we definitely agree on that, that is not a question for me either.

    I have a CWP and a couple guns in the house and they would be out.

    It's like I always tell people. Everyone always wants to "teach" survival but it's a patently obvious situation, it is you or the other person and if you can remain calm most of the time it will favor you.

    No. You do not know what the definition of genocide is. I will not discuss genocide with you until you figure it out. For the record I continued with my insuiations of your sexuality because either A) you were using it in an endearing way or B) you were calling me a baby about something. You never explained yourself so I went with it, assuming eventually you would give an explanation or just continue to insult me back because that's your style. You feed off of unnecessary conflict. You would think someone with The Maxx as there avatar would be more awesome but you proved me wrong. I am disappointed.

    Really? Someone uses the term 'baby' in a familiar tone and you take that as a come-on? Really now John...thats just...I dont know...sad is the best word I can come up with. Actually, I think you DO know exactly what 'I' meant when using it (unless you lead a horribly sheltered existence) and instead attempted to 'insult' me by taking a sad little swipe at my manhood. Funny how frequently people think the best way to insult a man is to imply he is gay. What DOES that say about...oh..I dont know...YOU, John?

    As for our disagreement about the term 'genocide'...you stick with yours, and I will stick with the daily slaughter of black men, 8 a day on average (not counting the ones 'merely' wounded). You stick to your pretense of care that occasionally a young black person dies in incidents that may or may not be criminal, and I will continue to point out the number that are dying daily and completely ignored. Caring, John...either you care about the people dying...or about some pretense of a cause. Its rather obvious where you land.

    I am done with this back and forth. You cannot make up definitions to words simply to serve your purpose. Furthermore, by your reaction you seem like you didn't even read my original posts. I simply said I was indifferent on the matter. If it were dark, the guy probably didn't even see who he was shooting. The title of the thread is as such because it has to be going by forum rules, and it was just much easier to copy and paste the title from the original article.

    Your explanation for your totally inappropriate comment is an insult, then fine. When I originally found the story, I found it along another story I posted a thread about I just felt it would make an interesting topic. As I said before a few pages up I find it more interesting no one posted on the other thread I posted, which has since been posted in.

    Re: Another Unarmed Black Man Killed

    Can we agree the OP source in this thread is a bit biased? Try this source which takes information directly from the police report.

    No charges filed against homeowner accused of shooting Bo Morrison | FOX6Now.com

    When this incident happened people claimed it was a race thing. It was dark, Bo was wearing dark clothes, he was somewhere he has absolutely no right to be. The "Porch" everyone is so concerned about has to be entered via 2 exterior doors.

    Just yesterday I noticed that in the 6 months since Wisconsin passed concealed carry the state has issued 100,000 permits. Guns are a big deal here. So is the right to protect yourself and your home. If someone enters my home at 2am without an invitation I do not think they should have any expectation of safety.

But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    Thank you for the secondary source.

    My point exactly TG. If you tresspass upon someone's property they will defend at all costs, you are taking your safety literally for granted by doing so.

    Granted, I am guilty of trespass onto posted property from my teenage days when we were partying outdoors. I recall my first few times thinking "uh, hey! we shouldn't be here."

    What I never did was enter someones house, much less while hiding from the police.

    I think the homeowner may have been a little hasty in pulling the trigger, however I wasn't there and quite possibly would have done the same thing given similar circumstances. If it's my family's safety or that of an unknown it will be my family, end of story.
