another great reason to have an AR-15. i am sure it was multiple people who entered the home. when you feel threatened from multiple intruders who are brazen enough to break into your home in the day time, its time defend whats yours to full extent of the law. stay home people, when the door bell rings, dont answer it, relax, dont get ahead of yourself, let them think no one is home, take a stand somewhere comfortable with your already loaded firearm. as they enter your home and you begin to fear for your safty, dont call the police, take careful aim and end the threat on your terms, it is after all your home. now call the police and have them clean up the mess these fools made.

Spot on, KNOW YOUR GUN RIGHTS In the words of one of America's greatest actors and Presidents:

“Freedom is never more than one armed conflict away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand our AK-15s over to them with the well-taught lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. Arm yourselves. Like we made the Soviets, let every small-time petty thief, each time he attempts to steal a bicycle from your garage, fear for his life. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”

—Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961

You cant use deadly force in defense of property. The question is would a reasonable person believe that imminent death, sexual assault or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another individual will occur if force is not used.

Not answering the door when someone knocks, grabbing the old AK or AR and waiting for someone to waltz through would land you in prison for life for premeditated murder.

So go for it. Sounds like you belong OFF the steets and caged like an animal or worse.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS sounds really, um, ... SYCO

Most burglaries happen during the daytime because normal law abiding citizens have jobs and go to work. Its not about being brazen. Its about being good at their craft.

yea thats it blame someone who is willing to protect themselves from unprovoked attack. compare them to PYCO MASS MURDERS. you are some kind of piece of garbage liberal. liberals are the enemy, they are terrorist who will attack you physically when they dont get their own way, ever watch whale wars, soon it will be legal gun owner owner wars. you liberals are ALL fools. go ahead and wait to find out what the intruders want as you stand there peeing yourself ( thats fearing for your safty my friend ) and after three or four of them have told you they are there to steal only your personal property maybe they will let you help them load it up into your car they are going to steal aswell. and after they are done you can hope and pray they dont care about any eyewitnesses because if they do you are just one bullet or stranulation device away from not haveing to have to care about how i am going to protect myself when i am fearing for my safty. one more thing i really hope your young daughter doesnt have to return home early because she forgot her lunch that morning and find herself in the middle of you and the intruders desiding what to about any eyewitnesses, she may never make it to school again. have a nice day BOZOS and DUH.

Liz C,

“I do not believe in taking away the right of the citizen for sporting, for hunting and so forth, or for home defense. But I do believe than an AK-47, a machine gun, is not a sporting weapon or needed for defense of a home.”

-Ronald Reagan, February 6, 1989

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS - here is where your argument fails: you could have avoided the situation by answering the door or leaving out your back door. And i am pretty sure if these intruders (And how are you sure that it was multiple people during the daytime? Were you there?) saw you standing in your comfortable spot with an AK 47 or AR 15, that they would simply turn around and leave. So, shooting them all and calling the police to clean up the mess "they" made, is murder. Maybe it would be justified if they were strangling your wife at gunpoint, were seconds away from killing her and wouldn't stop but even then you cant use more force than is necessary to stop them.

Liberal or conservative, setting an unnecessary trap and killing these folks is against the law and your entire scenario is completely deranged.

How about shooting them in the foot?
