    B.C., MI family defends house with sword, buys gun next day.

    http://fox17online.com/2016/08/26/si...samurai-sword/

    So, the vid has a couple details the article left out. The intruder pepper sprayed mom and the youngest boy, and thats when the oldest grabbed a sword and charged. Too bad he didn't get the guy.

    Police showed up "in minutes" and were unable to find the suspect even with a K-9. Mom went out the next day and bought a gun. If I were her, I'd also be reinforcing that door frame. The vid shows it to be very badly built.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    I was hoping to read that the kid lopped off the perp's arm. Or at least his hand. Good job anyway!

    What about the 1 year waiting period that the anti-gunners want for us?

    Yeah, like that Johns Hopkins student who cut off a burglar's hand. The thief was found later unarmed.

    Or disarmed. That will stop someone out of hand.

    Don't forget the twenty-seven 8x10 color glossy pictures, with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explainin' what each one was, to be used as evidence against them!
