    To me.. anyone entering my home while it is occupied must want to cause harmas he or she confronts its occupants.Therefore,it isa threat to me and my family and deadly force is necessary!



    The article

    PORTLAND, Ore. - Police converged on a home in northeast Portland Friday after a homeowner reportedly shot and injured an intruder.

    Police say evidence at the home is consistent with a forced entry and that residents in the home woke up early Friday after hearing breaking glass and someone moving around in an enclosed porch area of the home.

    A 71-year-old man in the residence, Leroy Hudson,reportedly fired one shot at the suspected intruder.

    The injured suspect, a 26-year-old male, was transported to a local hospital with injuries described as "life threatening." Police said he was shot in the head.

    One local resident said he sees "weird people" walking around the area at all hours of the night and is not surprised at the incident.

    Oregon law does permit the use of deadly force if a homeowner feels a threat is imminent.

    Northeast Glisan Street between 105th and 109th Avenue was closed for several hours while police investigated the incident.

    No argument there. My XD stays loaded with 12+1 .40 S&W rounds, with a spare 10-round mag, just in case I can't hit anything from being groggy.

    That being said, I should REALLY move my computer.... It's kind of in my line of fire from my bedroom... :shock:

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I absolutely agree.

    And it is precisely for that reason that , I can never figure out why burglars would ever want to, while making a lot of noise, break into someone's home....at night...while there is someone sure to be home....who might have a....loaded gun!

    ...Hudson and his wife, Janice, 62, were asleep in their home at Northeast 107th Avenue and Glisan Street at 4:50 a.m. Friday when they heard sounds of a break-in.

    According to the couple's son, Walter, Janice Hudson called 9-1-1 to report an intruder, while Leroy Hudson opened the back door and found a man standing outside. Walter Hudson said his father asked the man what he was doing, the intruder began to advance, and Leroy Hudson shot him.

    Sgt. Brian Schmautz, spokesman for the Portland Police Bureau, said Sweet's last known address was Auburn, Wash. Sweet was arrested June 8 in Portland on a charge of disorderly conduct....
