I just have to say this, the First two examples are of people who's job it is (or was) to use weapons to protect people. Just saying.

I think there should be a limit to have how many guns a person should have.

Well the op was an off duty lawman. It's not his job when he's clocked out.

My bad, an ex-marine. It isn't his job to save lives on the street and a CCW law enabled him to do just that.

Yep, the second story was an off duty officer who also didn't have to do anything. This thread is very young though and will be filled with examples of average joes and janes defending their integrity with hot lead.

There's plenty of us. Don't worry. Btw, I don't even own a gun but I have a thorough understanding of the importance of having the right and ability to do so.

One can never have too many guns.  Although one should keep and maintain only those that they feel capable of having.  Guns in private ownership as protected by the 2nd Amendment is there in place to defend ourselves from the politicians.  The military is to defend us from foreign threats.  The authority and power to run this nation does not lie in the hands of the ruling elite but in the hands of the people and that is why they should never relinquish their guns.

I have three. Is that too many?

Again I post that the best thing about the gun ban efforts by Democrats was that the end result is that this country is far more armed than ever before.

Personally, I like the "grandmother holds two men for police" that still comes up when I check for it. I'm sorry, I'm having trouble with copy and paste on my computor at the moment. There have been all kinds of articles from local news stations around the US if you google "home invader shot", "woman shoots home invader", or "multiple home invaders shot".

They don't make a big splash in national news, but they have a huge effect on the local communities. :tu:

I wanted to dump a few nationwide local stories that are all dated within the last week or so.

A north Tulsa homeowner ended a home invasion by firing a shot at the intruder on Wednesday morning.

It all happened around 1:20 in the area of Pine and Gilcrease. Police say the homeowner's alarm went off, so he got up to check on his kids. Police say that's when he saw the suspect coming in through a backdoor.

The suspect then ran out the same way, and the homeowner fired one shot at him. POlice say that bullet is lodged in the door. No one inside was hurt and the suspect got away.  Police don't have a good description of the suspect, they only know he was wearing black clothing.

WARRENTON, Ore. –  Police say a homeowner in the coastal community of Hammond shot and wounded a suspected burglar.
Warrenton Police Chief Matthew Workman says an officer heard the shot Friday night, a few minutes after dispatchers received a call from a neighbor saying the homeowner was holding an intruder at gunpoint.
When the officer went inside, he found 25-year-old Tony Tischer wounded on the floor. The officer calmed Tischer until help arrived, and the man was taken to the hospital.
The name of the 44-year-old homeowner has yet to be released. Workman says the man gave his 12-gauge shotgun to the officer and has cooperated with investigators.
No arrests have been made.
