Intruder Shot and Killed In Home Invasion Robbery

I guess Robber didn't read 1st rule in "Robbing for Dummies" which states;
Rule 1- never, ever bring a toy gun to a robbery or a gunfight.

Kudos to Mr. Harvel for having a means for self defense and to the State of Florida for not restricting those means for self defense.

Prayers for Mr. Barnes' Family.

Robber met the right demise Evil!

I don't care what people say. Guns save lives. Period!! Always have and always will. Something for every voter to think about when you go to the polls to vote for your favorite politician. Don't give any anti-gun politician a chance with your rights.

The Violent death of anyone is sad but far better it be the offender than the victim.

I only find it sad for the victims. No simpathy or remorse from me on whatever death or injury happens to the offender, I don't care how violent. It's the offender (intruder) who set in motion those actions that eventually caused his own violent death. Someone once said: "Crime will decrease when the cost of committing a crime significantly increases.....so shoot straight everyone!!!!" Only we can make that happen.

One of the greatest freedoms we have in this country is freedom from fear, freedom from oppression, and freedom from tyranny. The Bill of Rights as protected by the Second Amendment to those rights make those freedoms possible.

Ayn Rand once said, "The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities."

If nothing else, the recent attempt to pass national concealed carry shone a light on what America seems to finally be figuring out -- that liberals are willing to trample individual rights. According to New Jersey's Frank Lautenberg, the idea of people being able to defend themselves is a "radical agenda."

It's also amazing to see democrats use the "states' rights" argument to oppose something like this, while they routinely shove federal mandates down states' throats.

Intruder Shot and Killed In Home Invasion Robbery

I'm curious about the attacker employing what sounds like a defibrillator against an 82 year-old man. I don't think an AED would be a weapon of choice in any situation, unless you were looking for a way to take an old man's life and have it look like a heart attack. The fact that he was shocked in the arm and the stomach sounds like the attacker might've been going for placement on upper and lower chest during the scuffle. But aside from all that, I wouldn't think you could attack someone with an AED like that. The ones I've seen won't shock if there's a heartbeat detected -- so I don't know if somebody would have to crack the thing open and disengage the safety or what. Any doctors here?

Don't know, but what I do know is that a difibrillator isn't that hard to get. In fact many companies and businesses are now placing them in key locations along the hall ways of many buildings, just like fire extinguishers. My company does. Nothing more than a bracket holding them to the wall secured by shear-away plastic ties. Seems like they would not be that hard to steal or abuse, so far no one has abused that honor system yet where I work.

What's even more amazing to me is how all those well educated Ivy League lawyers and Supreme Court judges spend so much time and money deciding what exactly the founding fathers meant when they wrote the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. No other Amendment in the Constitution is attempted for interpretation as much as the 2nd Amendment. Can't those over educated lawyers understand plain English????????
