Get a gun for home defense, people. I'd pick either a shotgun or a pistol, shotgun because it has stopping power, pistol because it's small and easy to handle.

So sad if he armed himself this would have been the story of a father saving his family by killing two thieves.

Isn't this the same photo used for that Helena Montana story about the supposed IED?

As an ex cop and combat wounded infantryman I contend that only a fool relies on societies garbage men to stop any determined aggressor in any context. Utopia does not exist. Only good men and bad ones. It is your own responsibility with freedom to take care of your body and raise your circumstances in life. Too much charity breeds weak masses dependent upon societal failsafes that left unchecked, propigate the decline of the host society. One cannot escape the natural order indefinitely in a cacoon of government cheddar.

Are people aware that guns are abused so much cause they are easy to get? Here in Germany we have like no armed crimes at all. Meanwhile in America people shoot their family members cause they think they are intruders.

I’ll bet one of America's wonderful “diverse” citizens is responsible. Any takers?

they don't have this gun problem Down under. No wonder he wasn't prepared. Also without the proper training even if you have a gun you are still likely to get your self killed.
