It's farkin' Detroit, that house is in a low crime area.

But guns are bad and are only used to shoot kids and have no legitimate place in society!

There was another one similar to this just a few days ago...Detroit too. There's home security video of it, but this one involved 3 guys kicking in a back door and then running when the homeowner (also a woman) came out with a rifle.

You'd think that the homeowner would get a clue after the first break-in and 1) put bars on the windows, or 2) move to a safer neighborhood.

With what money?

Only two kinds of people live in Detroit anymore: those who want to move but can't afford it and those who want to move but really can't afford it.

Can't be.  Defensive firearm use is a Fark myth.  All firearms owners are just waiting for the opportunity to gun down an innocent child for some perceived slight.  This is irresponsible reporting.

Bars on the windows is a good way to die in a fire. Especially in an arson prone town like detroit. Furthermore if you have the nerve to pull a home invasion on someone, and you get shot to death in the process fark you to you deserved it.

Fortunately the three involved were caught, being that they shot at, but not hit (afaik). She had a rusted HiPoint carbine. They're ugly, and their handguns get a lot of crap online, but those rifles are well made. They're excellent home defense weapons imo, I want one myself for home and as a range toy.

Your right. You should give her the money to afford either of those options.

One thing I've learned from this thread is thatconservatives have no idea how liberals in the real world feel about self-defense and responsible gun ownership. Here's a hint: We're not the stupid, pie-in-the-sky, la-di-dah caricatures Rush Limbaugh and Ted Nugent tell you we are.

Wow. we even play "blame the victim" when a guy forces entry through a basement window?

I'm sure the goofs family hopes you will be on the jury of the wrongful death lawsuit.

Maybe they can say with so many burglaries she's obviously making her house an attractive nuisance.

Hi point pistols AND rifles are cheap and ugly as hell. They are also surprisingly accurate and well made, and dirt cheap

Why should the woman have to do any of that? That's almost like saying "let me teach you how to not get raped" instead of teaching dudes not to rape.

They also create GREAT jobs for hand and vascular surgeons when they blow up in your face or slide-bite your thumb in two.

Hi Point pistols are widely regarded as Mall Ninja guns and Saturday Night Specials.

Nice shot, ma'am. Glad you weren't hurt. Hope the DA isn't put under pressure to charge you with anything.
Sucks to be the home invasion robber, but he made his choices.

People often forget that there's a white area in Detroit (or just outside it?) that's quite uhh... white and safe.
I don't know why they would live in or near Detroit, but it's pretty normal from what I've heard.

ultraholland: The woman claims she warned the intruder

 I would believe it. Been reading a couple of studies on self-defense shootings, and warning the assailant is not only pretty common, it most often is the catalyst that actually serves to -escalate- the event into a shooting.
 Apparently, the kind of violent mind that does home invasions is also the kind of mind that lacks pity/empathy, and so cannot understand a victims unwillingness to hurt them purely on human decency/moral terms. They can only interpret the extra effort and exposure to risk a victim assumes by giving a warning as purely an empty threat - as weakness and an unwillingness to follow through. Really, they can not interpret it in any other terms, lacking any context in their own lives of empathy or selflessness. (i.e. They wouldn't stick their neck out for any total stranger, much less one trying to hurt them, so they misinterpret a victims warning as merely weakness or bluff).
 There are many cases of victims being clearly armed, even firing warning shots, and unarmed attackers charging them anyway. -Especially- after warning shots, strangely enough (even in one extreme case, when they came from a man firing bursts from a fully automatic rifle!). Those are quite often misinterpreted as a clear and unambiguous lack of a victims willingness to actually shoot a human; As the attackers themselves would not have hesitated or exposed themselves to undue risk for an attacker, they cannot correctly interpret the same behavior in others.

Whoa whoa whoa.  Around here people are defined by their political opposition.

But seriously, this place would be better if every thread wasn't a race to pigeonhole everyone so any point they make can be dismissed.

Cite your sources that prove they are any more dangerous to the user than any other brand of firearm.
