Ok anti-gunners you're home alone and this happens, what do you do?

And does this help you understand why the citizens of Arizona and other states are 'Fed Up' with waiting around for the federal government to do their duty?

Update:

@ Rock Star - You are flat WRONG in so many ways I don't know where to start. Check back and I'm sure some folks on here will educate you, unless you want to remain ignorant.

Update 2:

Firearms ownership in America is higher today than a decade ago. An estimated 80 million people own upward of 240 million guns. What percentage of them were involved in intentional or accidental deaths in the most recent year for which data are available? Barely one one-hundredth of one percent. Children under five are more likely to drown in water buckets or die in fires that they themselves start with cigarette lighters.

Update 3:

While the misuse of firearms generates publicity, the proper use of them for self-defense rarely does. Americans use firearms for protection more than two million times each year. Ninety-eight percent of the time, they only brandish their weapons or fire warning shots. However, each year gun-wielding citizens kill between 2,000 and 3,000 criminals in self-defense, an astounding three times the number killed by police. In a recent five-year period, the National Self-Defense Survey found that the number of legal, defensive gun uses was three to four times that of illegal, offensive gun uses—and that civilians using guns in self-defense save a minimum of 240,000 lives annually.

Update 4:

@ Lady Snow - You're wrong about Holder and Obama. If you want proof my email is open. I'll gladly send you proof of what they WOULD be doing if groups like the NRA weren't standing in their way.

    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.

    @Rock Star

    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.

    Update:

    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.

    The two videos you have shown are what go's on this country thousands upon thousands

    of times per day. More Criminal assaults are turned away by Legal Hand gun owners in

    this country than by sworn peace officers. If you don't have a weapon or are in fear of a

    weapon. Get yourself some form of protection. Now your first video these guys had semi

    automatics. Hard to say what the bottom line motive was. Robbery for sure. Possibly

    Homicide. The Home owner through the element of surprise. Turned this attack around

    on the bad guys. However this home owners marksmanship definitely needs to improve.

    He should have hit all four in the way they were configured.

    As for the 2nd Video this gos on everyday, Gang members killing innocent kids. Illegal

    gang members killing innocent kids. Only you the people can empower your local sheriffs

    dept or Police dept, to go after these people and send a message so loud and clear.

    It could be heard in Mexico.

    For those of you who do not own a gun. Call your local Crime prevention office, See what

    details and programs are available to you as alternatives to a gun.

    None of that will do any good if: A) There is not an up to date NATIONAL database that lists all individuals who for one reason or another are prohibited from owning a gun. B) Using that database in a background check isn't required on EVERY gun purchase C) The gun show loophole isn't closed D) Accessories that increase a guns killing power, such as high capacity clips, are not regulated. E) The laws aren't actually enforced.

    This shows federal incompetency on so many levels. This is why I will never have a home without having at least one gun in it. I may have a shotgun loaded with rock salt, but I definitely will have one that is the real deal. To hell with PC, if you come onto my property with obvious intentions of doing me harm, I will defend myself with anything from a kitchen knife to the kitchen sink.

    EDIT: @Lawgirl- there are far more than one example. Maybe we should make a wall next to the Vietnam Wall, listing all the victims of illegal aliens and coyotes, maybe then you would get it through your head that these are not isolated incidents.

    They would do like Carl Rowan did.

    When they saw naked teenagers skinny dipping in his backyard hot tub without permission, they would pick up a gun that he later said wasn't his (somebody carelessly left a loaded pistol at his house....), then start blasting away at them like Clint Eastwood.

    The people who shouldn't have guns are the ones who want to take away other people's guns. They are the ones who are dangerous with a gun. They want to outlaw guns because they think everybody else is as stupid as they are.

    Carl Rowan was a prominent nationally known gun control advocate.

    EDIT: Rock Star, what if they brought the guns with them from Mexico. You know, illegally? Funny thing, illegals ARE know to do illegal things....what part of this are you not getting?

    I like the Texas Castle Doctrine. You have a right to use deadly force to prevent the commission of a crime anywhere you have a legal right to be. That means at work, at a restaurant, school on the bus, as long as you are not trespassing, you can take action. And you don't have to be the target of the crime in question to take action to stop it. If you see a mugging on a public street, you can shoot the mugger. I think its a very good law.

    Since the anti-gunners have refused to answer your question, and have chosen instead to recite the same tired rhetoric and platitudes, I will be kind and answer the question for them: They would do nothing, and as a result they would be slaughtered. The media would turn a blind eye to their lack of ability to defend themselves, their families would never recover from the loss, and gun advocates would shake their heads in disbelief, wondering why people refuse to take responsibility for their own lives and their own safety, when clearly our government does not. You're welcome, anti-gun crowd. Have a nice day. My Smith & Wesson and I are doing well, thank you.

    You can't call the cops, unless you want them looking more for what the gunmen were looking for than for the gunmen. Why persue danger when we can manufacture a crime right here?

    I guess by now you can tell I have a very low opinion of those "pubic sevants" (not a mis-spelling)

    That having been said, I think there is more to this than meets the eye. Those gunmen knew their victim AND what they were after.

    If people are willing to commit the crime of slipping into the country without permission, it might stand to reason that they have no respect for our laws and will break even more once they're here. Add in Mexican drug lords and Central American gangs, and it looks like we should all be fleeing to Canada to save our hides.

    AZ is doing what the fed gov. should be doing for the rest of the states. The fed gov is NOT going to come take away any ones guns. That has never been said. Fed's just want to take illegal guns off the street.
