    Florida man defends his home

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/loc...,3982855.story

    According to detectives, the incident began about 10 p.m. Wednesday when two armed men broke into the apartment at 17255 SW 95th Ave. The resident, who was also armed, greeted the intruders with gunfire.

    The police investigation was continuing Thursday night. Detectives did not release the names of the resident or the intruders, and did not speculate publicly about the intruders' motive.

    The shooting rattled the Village Homes and Condos at Palmetto Bay, an ordinarily quiet 181-unit complex.

    Neighbors were awakened by the sound of gunfire, and some saw one of the injured intruders struggling to get back onto his feet after falling from the third-floor window.

    Clearly, it would have been better to just give the bad guys whatever they wanted, and wait for the magic rainbow shield of unicorns and pixie dust to descend upon the home and make everything all better.

    I am going to have to paraphrase this the next time I hear some say we need stricter gun laws so law abiding citizens can't protect themselves in a home invasion.

    Why didn't he just hide in a closet and dial 911? The police will eventually show up and write a police report. Obviously the guy defending his home is just some right wing gun nut and the invaders are oppressed by society and need more hugs.

    There, fixed it for you.
