    Yes, followed by Lesson Number Two: know how to clear rooms in your house without inadvertently shooting yourself or a family member.

    That part takes a bit of professional training, but since it's about successfully defending your house, the cost of the training is clearly worth it. :thumbsup:

    Tall about wrong place, wrong time.
    He was probably a sweet boy though.

    Well, I take exception to the article referring to a 72yr old man as being "elderly".

    Granted, he might be suffering physical ailments or chronic conditions that might reduce his ability to engage in strenuous physical actions, but it ain't old enough to be "elderly". Senior citizen, sure. Aged, maybe. Elderly? Give me a break.

    I agree with you.

    Although the homeowner prevailed this time, MUCH smarter and safer to be a witness at the trial.

    I've seen burglars emerge from tiny spaces you'd never believe could have concealed or even held them.

    ...while he rapes your daughters and wife and then cuts their throats? Could you live with yourself, knowing you could have saved them all, in the time it took the cops to get there?

    Same joke, but it was a terrorist blowing up his own house.

    With all due respect, one case has nothing to do with the other.

    I'm not sure where you're getting anyone advocating being passive in the face of a lethal threat to one's family but it appears that the homeowner in the original cited story was alone.

    I get up pretty early for work but I’m impressed he was coming home from breakfast at 5:30.

    You completely missed the point. Not everyone is going to be living alone, so 'cowering outside and waiting for the police to arrive' won't apply in all situations. One response does not 'fit all'.

    You're right, not everyone is living alone.

    Just the guy in the linked story that started the thread and the conversation in progress.

    Don't see where anyone was trying to make the point that one size would fit all.

    Hopefully, the officers bought the homeowner lunch.

    Still a good idea to get training. Last thing you want on your conscience is lighting up your kids cause you’re trying to figure out how to clear a house.
