“I work at a small liberal arts college (not faculty) and often hear griping about the expense of textbooks. I also see students buying $5 lattes, $16 pizzas and drinking alcohol on a daily basis. I see the expensive smart phones they carry, and I hear many speak of going on expensive spring break vacations. What are their priorities?”

“Can amnesty even be granted by a federal agency? Doesn't the power to grant amnesty rest in the judicial system, or in some cases, the legislative branch? What am I missing here? Does the NSA have it's own court system?”

“Right! So depriving law abiding citizens the option of being able to protect themselves is the answer? Good idea, criminals LOVE that option. It's so much easier robbing and killing defenseless victims.”

“A simple observation: any story related to gun violence anywhere in world, brings out droves of the # 2 lovers frothing about gun control and how it ineffectual they are. They invariably omit/neglect a key point. Would the shooting had been more horrific if unrestricted access to firearms was the law of the land?”

Robert G Weiss on Nov 18, 2013 at 16:04:54

“It also brings out more of the poorly informed gun haters who claim that there would be no crime if only the US had effective gun control.

They invariably omit and neglect multiple significant factual pieces of information.

Such as the fact that the rate of crime is higher in most of the countries that have gun control or the fact that gun control is not crime control.

They also ALWAYS omit the FACT that the US shootings occur in "Gun-Free Zones" where there won't be any armed resistance.

Most importantly, those gun haters omit the FACT that the Second Amendment is, to quote Speaker Boehner, "the law of the land."”

alhorvath on Nov 18, 2013 at 11:23:15

“You know ZERO about firearms. Your comment about unrestricted access to firearms is BS like the rest of your post. Current laws in the US prohibit firearm purchases by:
1. Minors
2. Illegal Aliens
3. Convicted Felons
4. Convicted Drug and Alcohol Abusers
5. Mentally Insane
6. People under protective orders”

clb45para on Nov 18, 2013 at 10:59:37

“And it brings out droves of the anti-gunners trying to explain how it could happen even with their magic gun control. They invariable omit/neglect a key point. Criminals will always find a way to get firearms, and do illegal things.”

“Good thing he didn't use gasoline! Many more would have died.”

“Well, let's have a little balance here. Any story about a shooting brings out droves of gun controlist freaks frothing about how guns are the problem instead of people. These folks invariably ignore a key point. We know the direct impacts of controlist thinking in this country, from a number of state- and city-level examples like this one:

http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2013/02/04/gun-crimes-increase-massachusetts-despite-tough-gun-laws/HLXk8k1G0TiyNFJxmilzqL/story.html

You'll note, by the way, that the Boston Globe is hardly some bastion of gun rights.”

“The question remains: was it a reasonable fear by a reasonable person? I consider myself to be reasonable and kliling someone outside my house because SHE may break in seems unreasonable.”

kegworker13 on Nov 15, 2013 at 17:21:09

“Yeah, I don't know.

That's what well learn sometime down the road.

At 1:30am, in a city with a HUGE violent crime problem and reported police response times measured in hours not minutes, there is likely a heightened sensitivity to atypical situations.

Whatever the resolution, it is a sad event.”

“Because he gets to use force in defense of his life and property IF he has a reasonable fear.
At least a few elements of the reporting lead me to believe HE might have reasonably feared for his safety.  A more complete airing of facts, including HIS testimony will shed more light.
I am open to changing my mind, but initially, I side with the homeowner.”
