nubgnngs42. Not all gun owners are robbers. You must be one of those people that run a way with the negative side of something and get themselves riled up over it ON PURPOSE. This guy got off lucky. The homeowner controlled himself and didn't shoot the perp. I on the other hand, probably would have if I had a weapon. The way he blasted into that guys home is terrorism. Yes terrorism. Maybe the perp, the wannabe's, and others that like to rob banks should serve at GITMO for domestic terrorism.

If they hadn't owned a LEGAL gun, they'd probably been robber also. Won't see this on CBS/NBC/ABC news will you?

Roseanya would you rather the guy got away? If you are packin' a legal weapon then it's your right to defend your property. DaveAsh, why are his eyeballs red? Mine are red all of the time from allergies. I don't do drugs either. It's the freakin' pollen and the dog dander because I got 3 dogs that I won't give up. So I have to deal with it with Visine allergy eye drops.
