    All I here here is an emotional appeal "They're gonna getchya when all alone and unprepared at night! They are gonna harm you powerless if you are without a gun! They are gonna rape, kill, burn your house over and over again while you watch!!" Jeesh, take it easy will you?

    Seems like the neighbors homes are pretty close, have to wonder which ammo was used.

    This story is all well and good but it happened over two years ago.

    Investigators: 15-year-old son of deputy shoots burglary suspect | khou.com Houston

    Recycling old stories to make them appear recent seems to be a fairly new tact by Breitbart.

    Well every couple of years an AR can hit a man three times but not kill him and get herald as a home defense weapon.

    Now here in Oklahoma beginning of 2012 an 18 year old widowed mother shot and killed her intruder with a single shot from her 12 gauge.

    Three and the bad guy lives, one and done....

    hmmmmm

    This is not a single case whatsoever. It is on the news, in the newspapers too, every day. Since 724,000 people die of heart attacks every year, that is not a good example to use, particularly since it tends more to be in the old age natural causes category.

    What your message says is that you really didn't care what otherwise would have happened to that kid.

    Once again, I wish to point out that NO anti-gun person on any thread has yet to answer this:

    Millions and millions of women in the USA are raped. Some of those additionally horrifically permanent injuried, disabled, scarred and quite a few murdered. I have yet to read of any woman being sexually assaulted when she had a gun. Of the millions and millions of women raped, can you point to even ONE example of that happening when she was armed?

    Would it be accurate to say that you don't really care so won't respond?

    The Tampa news a few days ago ran the most dispicable editorial I've read in a long time - maybe you agree with it. It was very long. A woman explained that she had been raped, been robbed plus had been violently mugged 3 times. In 2004 she bought a gun. Fell in love with it. Practiced often. And she was not harmed by anyone.

    But men started telling her that her having a gun meant she was a coward, was afraid of men, and that she should not have guns because that is not the way a woman should act. This apparently after she became a big newspaper editorialist including for the NY Times. So, in her editorial many newspapers ran, she explained that being raped, assaulted and mugged is just part of being a woman and if a woman arms herself in self defense then she is just a coward, is afraid of men, and isn't acting womanly.

    As I explained, a person should take the time to make their house secure. Few homes are because of saving a few dollars on cheap locks and doors. And yes, a person should arm themselves in self defense - or accept the risks by recklessly not doing so and then not burdening others with your woes if you apathy about your own safety and others in your house doesn't go well. If you don't care about the safety of you and your loved ones before something bad happens to prevent it from happening, why should anyone care after it does?

    And, finally, raping and burning people alive in their own homes as they also burn the resident to destroy evidence, dna etc also no longer is all that rare. Do you read and watch the news?

    So what if it is 2 years old. Maybe if mainstream media covered it...

    The Columbine shooting was 15 years ago. PLEASE link to your messages complaining of dragging up old news to try to make a point by the repeated mentioning of Columbine. I am assuming you are impartial in your criticism of old news so of course you have been complaining of people bringing up past mass kills. Link please.

    Sandy hook wasn't 15 years ago, nor 2 years ago... then again no one presents Columbine like it just happened.
