These house invasions are insane. Residents of Long Island really should buy up some firearms and learn how to use them properly.

Nice job to the homeowner defending his home. And people say Im crazy because I keep my rifle in my closet and the filled magazine clip on the top shelf. Easy access= deadly intruders.

Too bad it's borderline illegal to even own a gun in this area of the country.

You're probably right. I think most of the home invasions are pre-planned when they know someone has money in the house.

Nothing wrong with having a 12 guage in the house in case some dirtbag decides to try something

There's more to it, without a doubt. One of the stories indicated that it was planned.

Borderline illegal? Clearly an enshrined right in the 2nd Amendment. Read the recent Supreme Court DC v Heller case. If a piece of trash breaks into your house and is lurking around in the dark, you have every right to blow him away and send him to kingdom come.

The Newsday article flat out said that the house was targeted. Either the residents were up to no good or they had a business that involved lots of cash.

I do own guns. I never said it was ILLEGAL I meant it as it is pretty much impossible to get a handgun in this area (downstate NY).
