illannoyin: Aces and Eights: Here is what I was taught, and I think it makes sense: If you hear someone you suspect is a home-invader, call out to that person "Go away, I have a gun." If it's your girlfriend, family member, or some other innocent person, they can identify themselves and a tragedy like this could be avoided. If it's really a home invader, the warning might run them off. If not, well...you can decide what to do with that .357 in your hand. But at least they had fair warning.

Correct.

WHO'S THERE? IDENTIFY YOURSELF! LEAVE NOW! I'M ARMED AND I WILL KILL YOU!

Don't go looking for them in the house. Lock yourself in the bedroom. Hide under the bed and dial 911. Have your gun ready if they kick in the door.

/Common sense goes a long way to avoiding "accidents" like this


ESPECIALLY if a loved one is not right there with you. If you don't know 100% that everyone that should be in the house is in the house for God's sake don't shoot at movement in the dark.

My house has a hallway where I can put myself between all our bedrooms and the rest of the house. You better believe that the first thing I'm going to do in a home burglary situation is to move to a defensive position and scream in a very high pitched voice "Who's There! I have a gun!"
The wife will of course be calling 911. of course knowing her, As soon as she has contact with the police, she'll be grabbing her own piece.
Screw the stuff, I'm not moving away from where my family is. I like to think that I wouldn't shoot at movement, or without identifying who I'm shooting at, but who knows what you'll do when your adrenalin is pumping.

The story that always sticks in my mind is a family friend, who thinks he's Rambo, was going room to room with a shotgun when he heard someone in the house at night. He came around a corner and came within a split second of blowing away his daughter who had come home from college unexpectedly. That was a real "come to Jesus" moment for him.

SpdrJay: Well, if this defense works for him, I've got a list of people that I may "invite over" soon...


Yeah if it's legal to shoot people just because they're burgling your house, or you think they are.

Most countries thankfully aren't that nuts.
 
2013-02-14 06:02:06 AM  

BigBooper: Hmmm. Shot 4 times, including a head shot.

Yep, seems legit.


Reports are coming out in SA now of domestic disturbances between the two previously. And who would think a tall, slim blonde is a burglar?

However, if she was just trying to give him a Valentine's Day surprise, that's horrifying. Although I'm sure the NRA will soon point out that if he wasn't armed, he was at risk for having his heart stolen and his breath taken away.

AdamFurious: How long before someone starts screaming for more gun control in this country. Because they are too stupid to realize this happened in South Africa.....anyone?


This happens Stateside all the time too. Can you explain to me why you think this isn't a relevant story to gun-control policies everywhere just because it happened somewhere different from where you currently are?

Arrested for murder.

And here we go.

He'd be the perfect stealth soldier, since he could be deployed anywhere while politicians keep to their promise of not putting "feet on the ground."

I hope piers Morgan goes to South Africa for gun control.

And also, shiatty deal this story. I hope for everyone's sake it was an accident. But how do you blast someone four times with a handgun by accident? I'm just going to take a shot in the dark here and say there's something more to this...

How do you shoot someone even once by accident?

If something startles you, your first reaction shouldn't be to just randomly shoot it until you know what's going on.
 
2013-02-14 06:09:35 AM  
The report read "Routine retirement of a replicant." That didn't make me feel any better about shooting a woman in the back.
 
2013-02-14 06:11:14 AM  

MisterRonbo: Medic Zero: HotWingAgenda: The first trigger pull might have been accidental.  I don't buy that the next three were.  Unless she put on her ski mask and carried a Kalashnikov to get a midnight snack.

I train to double taps. I could see getting off four shots before I realized the mistake. Ever watch a speed shooter shoot? A good shooter can empty a magazine lickety-split.

Also, after that first muzzle flash, you can't see shiat. Plus if you're certain enough to put that first round in to the unknown person, you're going to keep shooting - why wouldn't you?  What downside is there to pumping too many rounds in to a (perceived) threat?


His friends in your place who also have weapons and your gun is now empty?

On the murder charge, I'm guessing Pistorius's lawyer will claim both self-defense and mistaken identity. A two-pronged defense, if you will.

Yes but it's tough to stand on such wobbly legs without quite a bit of practice.

For real. Even if you know that it's a burglar, you turn the lights on and hold the gun in his face with one hand while dialing the cops with the other. Maybe you've got a little more of a right to be on the defensive if you have no feet and can't move so easily, but even still, you give the criminal a chance to surrender. If he lunges at you, then go ahead and get trigger-happy, but shooting at some random noise in the dark? In no way can that be justified.

An astoundingly hot woman is gone from the world, and an icon of perseverance over disability -an inspiration for millions- is going to wallow in disgrace in prison for the next decade or so. A sad day.

Atomic Spunk: A woman should never ever try to sneak up on a man when he thinks he's alone. She might catch him whacking it to tranny porn, then he'll have to spend hours trying to explain to her that trannies are more woman than man, really. The face is really feminine. And besides, he doesn't watch it much at all. This was like his first time seeing it. He didn't even really know this kind of stuff existed. Yeah, he agrees, it's kind of weird, and he'll never look at this kind of stuff again. He promises.


A tranny knows a man and doesn't need any direction. That's what I'm told at least. Yeah, that's it.

Is it wrong that any time a female is rape, murdered, or kidnapped I always need to see what she looks like before I decide how sad I am going to be?
 
2013-02-14 06:43:59 AM  

Smoking GNU: This happened in South Africa, where the usual standard for burglary in an occupied home is to tie the people up, panel-beat them for a while, terrorize them for a while further  to get any ad all valuables  and then proceed to rape all the females, shoot anyone who disagrees, and then beat toddlers over the head just for fun.

South africa is a farked up place to say the least. What happened here is a real tragedy and i feel for the family who lost a member, but burglary leads to vicious and violent murder in that country and  being in fear is entirely understandable. Mind you, switching on a light beforehand to actually SEE who it was would be a smart move before shooting, but who thinks clearly when they're scared out of their mind?


He had a gun, how could he be scared?
