And you know this how? Been listening to to much anti-gun propaganda that considers a child anyone under 25 years of age? I’ve seen data that indicates there are over 3 million occasions in this country where firearms either saved lives or frightened the thugs away so no firearm was used. This second category is difficult to track as agencies do not track incidents when the firearm wasn’t used, or the intended victim didn’t call police. 3 million is a best guess estimate.

Leaves one less hostile witness to testify in court. On that note, once they cease to be a threat, stop shooting. If they are down but still a threat, continue to attempt to neutralize the threat.

It’s not as easy to hit a moving target as you would think. Plus the adrenaline dump of the circumstances makes it even harder. It’s possible the weapon design played a role here too. We had a police involved shooting years ago with S&W Model 59′s, at a range of fifteen feet or less. 13 rounds total were fired by the three officers. The suspect was struck 9 times below the rib cage. No, they weren’t shooting to wound, as the suspect had just shot one of the three officers. The grip angle of that particular police pistol was far from optimal, and even with range training, the officers still shot low. I’m just pleased the homeowner was successful in defending himself and family. Yes, he potentially could have benefited from some range time. Oh, BTW, the suspect in the police shooting was DOA from blood loss ( It happened three blocks from the hospital and EMS quarters)

I’ve heard people say shoot the suspect and drag the body inside. NO NO NO! NEVER , EVER, FABRICATE OR MOVE EVIDENCE. You’ll get in more trouble than you can imagine, and the police will not believe ANYTHING you tell them once they discover you tampered with evidence. First words out of your mouth should be “I was in fear for my life (or the life of……….). Second should be ” I wish to speak with an attorney and have nothing else to say at this time concerning this incident. Invoking your right to silent does not imply guilt. You should make a statement as to who you are, where you live, show ID, etc.

The right to remain silent only applies if what you might say would incriminate yourself. As far as I am concerned, there is no right to remain silent to protect the guilty. That very much comes under the heading of impending a criminal investigation at least, and possibility criminal conspiracy.
You need to see the video of James Duane explaining
"Why I never talk to the police". It's on YouTube.
Wrong. The right to remain silent has nothing to do with guilt (which, by the way, YOU don't get to decide). You have no obligation to assist police in any way if you are a suspect, or even just a "person of interest" - however, you must clearly state that you "don't want to say anything until I have my attorney present" in order to invoke your 5th Amendment rights, otherwise, your silence CAN be used later in court to imply guilt.

You’re making an assumption the victim had sense enough to be armed and the killer instinct to use it appropriately. Sadly, few today possess that discernment. And society frowns on the sheep being armed.

It would appear blacks throw a hell of a party. That’s why I won’t hang out with them socially. And no, it’s not because of the color of their skin. It’s far more about the content of their character.

Perhaps the problem is the president knows more about Islam than the religion he supposedly subscribes to, the Christian faith.

And lose your reputation and potentially your life?

I can’t say I’ve never been prejudiced, but is it prejudice when your thoughts about a particular race is based on accurate observations, and not just a feeling?

That philosophy came from Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister. A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

Can’t get money out of ghetto rats. God help our military if this is the best they have in terms of future leaders.

Did they violate policy? Sure. Will anything be done? Of course not. They’re black, and are held to a lower standard of accountability than everyone else, just like the president.

I’m disappointed he and his ghetto rat helpers survived. They live to breed again another day.

Then look for ways to improve the law, not eliminate it entirely. 99% of the population has to be discomforted so the 1% can be comfortable Seems the tail is trying to wag the dog.
They're not trying to change anything. That's my entire point. It is the right who is seeking to make changes and implement new laws. We've been peeing side by side since we invented indoor plumbing. Why do we need restrictive changes suddenly? It's all about politics of fear and nothing else.
It's always been illegal for a man to enter the women's restroom until the trannies. The left is the one who started this fight.

We don’t call it Targay for nothing. Haven’t bought much there, definitely won’t now. I hope they have shot themselves in the, er, foot.

Glad it ended well for the home owner, but what would he have done if the thug had been armed and started shooting through the door? Best to not bluff, just shoot as determined by the suspect’s actions.
There was no bluffing involved as my husband held the intruder at gun point in our backyard until the officers arrived.

Apparently she understands none of it, from her previous statements.
