As a legal defense, you're better off arguing you're a poor shot than you fired 37 warning shots.
 
2019-07-08 8:30:58 AM  
Well that was a thing to read. Sounds like the 12-year old got tired of the drama and said "I got this."

This is why I have less-lethals in the house instead of a gun.  I wouldn't hesitate for a second to light up a nun with the taser if I thought she intended to cause me harm and had the opportunity to cause it.

Jesus. Do. Not. Fire. Warning. Shots. It's dangerous, you don't know where those bullets are going to go and if you do end up having to shoot someone it can get you into legal trouble.

No "gun nut" should defend this guys action.

When you draw your weapon, you better be prepared to decisively use it.

His "warning shots" shows either he needs more range time, or is unprepared to defend his family.

Either way, continuing to own a gun is something he should seriously reconsider.

Yep.   "I was so afraid for my life that I had to use deadly force" doesn't jibe with "but first I emptied a couple mags in random directions to scare them off"

"kill us all one by one".  Wow, how dramatic there, Tex.  She probably just had a drug induced psychotic reaction and busted into your house because it was there.  Farkin' dumb hillbilly redneck.

The problem is that the "middle ground " typically only becomes obvious AFTER the encounter and through hindsight.

An intruder in your house is either a threat or is not.   It really is binary.

So how many times did he reload during this engagement?  Or did he have several spare clips at the ready for home defense?  Or a gigundo barrel magazine?  Or banana clip?

Number of shots does not compute.

1.  Right: Call 911 and try to herd her into a bedroom and keep her there.

2.  Right:  Call 911 and, if you truly believe you cannot keep your family and yourself safe from this woman, go ahead and shoot her.  You should not be looking for an excuse to shoot her, though, this is something you do out of necessity.

3.  Wrong:  Pepper the house with bullets and have your kid smack the intruder with a wrench.  This is the situation where there is no control and everyone is in danger.

Um...no.  Why would you think that?  The guy was a complete dipshiat who should have his guns taken away from him.  You DO NOT FIRE "WARNING" SHOTS EVER.

2. Taser Taser Taser.

3.  Plastic ties or gorilla tape.

Oughta do it.

Plan B : install third eye, skip 2 & 3.

No warning shots.  If GTFO at volume doesn't work, then Plan B.

Magorn: And if you believe those were "warning shots" rather than lousy marksmanship from a panicky shooter


Actually, hitting zero bodies with 39 bullets in a house that contained at least three people (including the shooter) besides the intruder is a better outcome than you'd expect.

But hey, at the end of the day, if it took a big man with a gun to solve this problem, I guess I have to admit that there are times when firearms can be an impor--

The fight ended after the 12-year-old shoved a wrench into the intruder's neck, WRIC reported.

Oh.

Because someone who attacks you after you've warned them and shown them you are armed and done something as stupid as firing a warning shot is a danger to everyone in the family as it turns out. She fought everyone and put Daddy in the hospital. That's absolutely ethical and legal justification to shoot to stop the threat. If things had gone slightly differently he and possibly family members would have been dead.

Warning shots are for Hollywood. They are not for real life. This idiot should not have had a gun.

Oh good. I'm glad this has been covered. This guy clearly has no training with a firearm. He could have killed his own family or someone outside.
What an asshole. I'm not saying he doesn't have the right to defend his home, but Jesus, learn to shoot

Nah. They'll hold him up as a paragon of why you shouldn't have a gun if you don't know how to use it, don't understand the legal and ethical ramifications of using it, and can't use it in a safe manner.

I suppose she's lucky to be alive.  This was in Virginia, and Virginia has a fairly strong castle doctrine.  If he'd have said "She was crazy, she made a threatening statement about being the devil. I then fired a warning shot and told her to GTFO.   She didn't leave, but instead made a move towards my son.  I feared for his life, so I shot her four times in the head to be sure," no way does the Commonwealth's Attorney even present that to a grand jury.

#1 and #3 really only different in terms of outcome. Both involve close-quarters fighting with a crazy person with unknown weapons and intentions.
