Maybe some of the thugs in this city would re-consider breaking in homes if this were the way citizens handled things here:

Hickory Home Invasion Turns Into Double Homicide - Charlotte News Story - WSOC Charlotte

Of course, there may be more to the story. We don't know if the intruders were known to the homeowners as of this time. But nevertheless . . . it used to be people knew they would get shot if they broke into a home here in the South, period. Hope I don't sound like a vigilante, but homeowners should feel safe in their own homes . . . and if that means being prepared to defend my home . . . that is what I will do.

Please note these intruders were armed.

This is the very reason why I have been teaching my wife how to shoot. She knows where I keep the gun, the mags and extra ammo in case the two mags does not get the job done. She's becoming a pretty good shot too.

Good for you. Refuse to be a victim in your own home.

I'm glad to hear that at least some people in the area are resisting irrational fear of guns.

I also taught my wife to use the "Smith & Wesson Home Defense Plan."

She joked that she now also knows the "Smith & Wesson Marital Fidelity Plan." I guess I had better keep those vows!

Or the bobbit plan for those that think the iron skillet is worth more and don't want to risk damaging it.
