Wow, That home owner needs to take some shooting lessons, if that had been my home I can guarantee that the police would know right where to find them. They would not have to look any further than my garage.
If we had it your way there would be 4 armed suspects, do you actually believe that criminals are law abiding citizens? Even if the US Banned all guns, these guys brought them in from Mexico.
Maybe you would do well to look at the country that has one of the lowest crime rates in the world. Switzerland. Care to make a random guess.
Switzerland has mandatory military service, all males must serve in the military, after your military service is ended you are required by law to take your weapon home with you. You will find at least one fully automatic weapon in each household.
What crook in his right mind would want to break in to an occupied home when he knows that the people inside are likely to have more firepower than he has.
If only 5% of the US population were carrying a firearm openly exposed on their hip, who would the mugger attack? If you think that the second amendment was only meant for standing armies your are wrong and if you are not carrying a weapon you could be DEAD wrong.
Arizona is a right to carry state, a person can carry concealed without a permit. The state I live in is a may issue state, fortunately the county I live in is a will issue county and that permit is good state wide.
OK so one incident does not a case make, this is a small list of the unlucky US citizens that did not make it.

In 2006 alone, illegal immigrants have killed more US citizens than we have had soldiers die in Iraq and Afghanistan.
