Louisiana homeowner fatally shoots armed home intruder, police say
Two armed men kicked open the front door or a Lafayette, La., home early Wednesday morning and were greeted by a homeowner who opened fire, killing one of the suspects, police told FoxNews.com.Two men armed with handguns. More potential suspects. But we should only have seven rounds to defend ourselves, right? Just wait until all we have left are single-shot .22s and shotguns. Of course, this being America, we'll have 15 single-shot .22s waiting. Why does anyone need a 30 round magazine? Because you just plain don't know how many people are coming through that door. You don't know how adrenaline and fear are going to mess up your aim. You have no idea if the person coming through the door is on drugs.
Many details of the home invasion remain unclear, but police have some of the broad strokes.
Cpl. Paul Mouton said the two masked suspects were armed with handguns forced their way into the home. Once inside the home, the suspects exchanged gunfire with the home owner, he said.
You. Just. Don't. Know.
The goblins have the benefit of surprise, superior numbers, and a willingness to break the law. Why on earth the good, honest people are expected to willingly hamstring their self-defense efforts will go down as one of the dumbest parts of the gun control movement. We're supposed to knowingly and willingly eschew the most effect form of self defense, even though the people attacking us have no such compunction.
I'm still trying to figure out on what planet this makes sense...
