Resident kills man trying to enter home
A person was found dead in northwest Roanoke late Thursday after an attempted home robbery led to gunfire.So, it's midnight and someone - or someones - is kicking in your door. You live in one of the sketchier areas of town, and police response is measured in multiple minutes (which, still, is pretty decent all things considered). Would you rather curl up in the fetal position on the floor and hope the police get there in time, or would you rather take steps to defend yourself using the best tools possible?
Officers were called to the 3000 block of Ferncliff Avenue just before midnight Thursday after reports that multiple shots had been fired in the area.
I don't understand why this is such a hard question to ask. While the forces against freedom chatter about some nebulous and dubious "right to be free of gun violence", they ignore that the measures they prattle on and on about directly impinge on our right to be safe in our homes - because when you prevent good people from having the best tools (and let's face it, their proposed laws only affect good people), that's exactly what happens. When you're reduced to a single shot rifle that's stored in a locked cabinet, it's awfully hard to protect yourself against three or four attackers.
But then, it's not really about reducing "gun violence", is it?

That is all.
