Doesn't this seem fishy to anyone else?  2 guys want into a specific house, so they grab a girl to force her to open the door, and 2 armed parents are waiting for them?  This doesn't sound like a robbery.  Hostage taking is a big deal.  This sounds like they wanted in to that specific house, and had a good idea what might be waiting for them.  Sounds to me like this was the result of something illegal, like a fight between rival drug dealers.

I hate guns, wouldn't feel comfortable sleeping in a house that had one, and generally feel they're misused and abused by a majority of the gun-owning population, but I don't see anything wrong in what this father did.  If you break into someone's home, armed, then use one of the occupants of the home as a human shield.....if you get shot, oh well.  It's not like this guy shot someone who just happened to be walking past his driveway.  This was a violent home invasion with his daughter as a hostage.

Cut me a mother-farking break.

Let's skip the notion of sides for a moment, sit down rationally, and point out a couple things.
1. Everybody had guns. The robbers, the mother, the father.
2. The robbers were holding a gun to the daughter's head while using her as a shield. Presumably that indicates point blank, unmissable range. And if they actually wanted to carry out their threat, at any time, they could've.
3. The parents shot at the robbers 'as they came through the door'. One was accurate enough to miss the teen, one wasn't accurate enough to hit the teen.

Is this exactly "precisely as it's intended"? Arm the robbers, encourage random civilians to shoot at the bad guys with out apparent care or skill (in one case) to ensure that there isn't collateral damage? The bad guys, obviously, didn't want to actually kill her,- they wanted to threaten, or they would've shot the teen. How could easily it have been the teen that died?

Is that the responsible gun ownership you want to idealize?

Let's go to the bonus round, and take guns out of the equation. Desperate hoodlums don't have the money to purchase illegal firearms, and law-abiding homeowners don't have guns either. They're using bats and knives. And well, probably nobody turns up dead, even if it went down the same way, father beating away the two criminals, because it's so much harder to kill someone with a bat or a knife. And the teen, would've been safer, at risk for a broken limb instead of a gunshot wound.

If you want to have a serious discussion, I'll entertain it. Tell me how guns made this better.


I'll bite.

In the other thread regarding the gentleman who lost his life confronting the 2 cop killers in Vegas, the gun grabbers kept reiterating that we could only judge his actions based on the end result. Of course, this meant Wilcox was an idiot for confronting the gunmen because in hindsight, they were only targeting cops. It didn't matter that that information was unavailable to the terrified shoppers in walmart at the time.

Using that same gun grabber logic applied to this situation, we come to the conclusion that this guy is a hero and guns saved the day.

I believe that for different reasons of course, mainly because these two scumbag robbers won't be able to terrorize any more victims. Sometimes it's better that these people get removed from the gene pool.

The parents were just respecting the beliefs of their fellow citizens. See, the thugs declared that the believed violence to be an acceptable solution to their problems. The parents acknowledged their belief system and shared in it.

We should rejoice in the cultural exchange that went on.

I understand your delusional belief that no one should have to die an unnatural death, but sometimes rabid animals just have to be put down. What would your preferred solution have been?

Sorry if you are totally happy killing people. I would prefer we didn't if it could be avoided. And since they were using her for leverage, and a dead hostage is worthless, the chance of them actually killing her is not as guaranteed as you would think.


The chance of them letting her go was also not guaranteed and a father's first and foremost responsibility is to protect his children.

No one is happy about killing. But, if it's them or her and he chose them, I'd say it was the best possibly outcome. They shouldn't have shown up. THEY are the criminals.

Actually true. Successful defensive gun use in the United States is somewhere in the ballpark of 2.5 million annually, with most of those not requiring firing the weapon. But don't let the truth get in the way of your truthiness.

But if the gun isn't used, then how does that classify as defensive gun use?

And where do you get the figure of 2.5 million annually?

Because you don't always need to fire your weapon for it to be effective. Bad guys don't particularly like to get shot either, and the smart ones will about face and GTFO when confronted by an armed victim clearing leather. No need to pull he trigger at that point.

So its a brandishing of a weapon? Would a decent sized knife work? Or a club? Does it have to be a gun?

Where does the 2.5 million successful uses come from? If a guy goes to rob a store, but a cop is inside, and he doesn't Rob the store, since the cop has a gun does that count in the 2.5 million?

I suppose it depends.

If the victim is an elderly individual or woman, I don't think displaying anything other than a firearm is going to deter many criminals. The criminal may have had the size and strength advantage, but the smaller victim has now turned the tables in their favor with a firearm.

The 2.5 million number I believe is high. In actuality it's probably more around the few hundred thousand mark. Still good enough justification for me.

Do you actually have a source for that "few hundred thousand" statistic?

If you have an elderly woman who can't raise a knife, how is she supposed to use a firearm properly? It would break her wrist first.


Then there's this part from the same CDC report:

"Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was 'used' by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies," the CDC study, entitled "Priorities For Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence," states.

Hey, here in Canada entire street gangs share one gun, or rent one from another gang when it's time to menace or shoot someone.  Things seem to have gone a bit full retard lately (we've had almost ten shootings this month) but overall the supply/demand situation is a LOT different for criminals here because firearms are so restricted.

Launch Code: This man should be charged with a hate crime. He obviously hated these poor individuals. The whole family is probably racists. The daughter probably looked at the gentlemen disrespectfully and caused this whole incident. So she should be charged with inciting a riot. The wife is the hero here because she tried not to hurt anyone and was probably forced to shoot by her evil husband, who's probably a super racist and a woman hater.
As a proud liberal I would NEVER allow firearms near my house. Those things are dangerous killing machines and kill people indiscriminately whenever the device feels like going off. If guns were outlawed this incident would've never happened because those gentlemen would never use something illegal to force fellow Americans to do something. If guns were outlawed, those gentleman would have to get jobs and become contributing members of society.
This family, probably racists, should've acted more appropriately and the lives of these 2 poor souls would've been spared. Think of their poor families that now have to deal with the loss.
As a proud democrat that believes strongly in constitution, except the dumb parts, I would've handled the situation differently. I would've asked my wife to call 911 and while waiting for the cops that are always parked within seconds of mine and everyone else's location. I would've informed the gentleman that committing this crime would probably prevent them from legally purchasing firearms in the future. I would've explained that I voted for obama, but not because of his race. I would've cried and whimpered and told them where all my valuables are located. I would've offered up my daughters and the wife's, depending on her looks, sex parts. I would've offered to take one of the gentlemen to my ATM while the other stayed with my family and watched TV and ate snacks and had participated in civil intelligent conversation. Or, I would've grabbed the wife, escaped out the back door and called 911. Hopefully the cops ...


You obviously know nothing of firearms. They don't just 'go off', you have to pull the trigger to make that happen. And last I checked, looking at someone 'disprespectfully', does not give them legal authority to hurt you. And maybe you're lucky enough to live next to a police station, but most people arn't. Sometimes the cops take hours to show up. And what kind of person would offer his daughter up for sex to save his own life? You gotta bargin that shiat man. She's a 17 year old hot piece of ass. And white. I bet you could trade her for 3 gold chains. Each. Just turn that robbery into a business opportunity. Say something like "Sure, you *could* rob me and rape my daughter. But then the police get involved, and the news will be all over since she's white. Or....I could *sell* her to you, and then you can take your time and have *no* cops. Your call. Good choice. You mind if I film it, while I beat off? I'll stand in the corner, and I won't be a bother." See, you're part of the problem.

Dimensio: Evidently the father referenced in the article decided to appoint himself judge, jury and executioner.


Not quite up to "hurr-durr" standards.  4/10

OK, since, like all gun threads, we've abandoned reason for madness in this thread, let me ask you this:  What's the scoreboard for

daughters saved from home invaders by gun-toting dad

vs.

daughters shot by accident when coming home late/unexpectedly by gun-toting dad?

(Bonus adult son killed after mistaken for burglar)

TheGregiss: phenn: starsrift: Well, this ought to be good for a few gun nuts' masturbatory fantasies.

Oh, FFS. Spare me, Bunny Foo Foo.

When some asshole shoots up a bunch of innocent people and your side of the debate makes a point on the event, it's relevant and important.

When someone uses a firearm precisely as it's intended to save the life of a family member and our side of the debate makes a point on the event, it's masturbatory.

Cut me a mother-farking break.

Yeah! Why mass shootings are so rare and incidents like in the article are the norm!


Actually true. Successful defensive gun use in the United States is somewhere in the ballpark of 2.5 million annually, with most of those not requiring firing the weapon. But don't let the truth get in the way of your truthiness.

This story is fake. I learned in the other thread that a good guy with a gun never wins.

Yaw String: Dad did well. Mom sounds like a liability.


No kidding, especially since her daughter was the human shield.  I'm sure the daughter is delighted that her dad is such a great shot; and that her mom is that bad instead of almost good enough.  But seriously, though, if I were in that situation, I would never have enough confidence in my aim to shoot at a target who is using my child as a shield.

Or as Mayor Bloomberg calls it: 2 more victims of gun violence including a violence.  The dead guys name will be read at some vigil as if he was a martyr for gun control.  Just like when they read the Boston Bombers name and the Newton shooters name.

The headline of TFA is headachey, but not really in the way you point out.

Nope, sorry, my bad. Upon rereading the headline I see all that you pointed out, and then some.

Livingroom: quickly try to decide what to kill them with, my AR15 pistol with EoTech, my AR15 rifle with ACOG, or my H&K91 with Fero Z-24 scope.

Nope. You're confusing vengeance with immediate legitimate defence.

AverageAmericanGuy: It just goes to show you that you've probably made some pretty bad choices in your life if you have a kid at 17 years old. One of those choices will probably be deciding to live in an area where people will kidnap your kid outside your doorstep.

He shot dead armed robbers using his daughter as a human shield? Why would he shoot them if they were already dead? And why would he use his own daughter as a human shield?

Two more touching photos to include in the Fark anti-gun threads.

Daily Fail Headline:

"Father shoots dead armed robbers using his teenage daughter as human shield during home invasion"

That wasn't very nice of the father to use his daughter as a human shield.

And just because I wanted to look it up, the initial plot summary is rather hilarious:

In the year 2022, the penal system is run entirely by corporations, with prisoners seen as assets. Highly-trained ex-marine John Robbins is imprisoned for life for murdering his commanding officer, who in 2011 ordered him to kill scores of innocent men, women and children in Benghazi (Libya).
