    Hope the homeowner doesn't suffer any long lasting ill effects from this.

    He was shot and forced to shoot and kill two fine upstanding young men who were just about to turn their lives around. I am pretty sure that will affect him in some way. Sarcasm off.

    That's the downside of a plan to rob somebody for guns ... the victim may be well-armed.

    The fact that they can in front and back doors simultaneously will work in his favor.

    Yep...…….. "Officer...…..I was in fear for my life and threats were facing me from two different directions inside my home."

    Attacked from TWO DIFFERENT PATHS ... this wasn’t these guys 1st rodeo I bet.

    Now think about multiple invaders in your home and how you’d defend. I will just about bet with 4 intruders you will not be making perfectly aimed shots ... point and click is about the best I would hope for. Thinking along that line I’ll say a 10 round mag would leave me swinging a plastic and aluminum club at at least 1 or 2 wounded intruders at best ... and some people say we don’t need more than 10 (or even some cases fewer) rounds.

    My front and back doors both lead to the same place.

    Well, it was traumatic and he was "triggered". He should sue for the emotional distress. ;)

    Wonder if one of the two dead was shot by an accomplice instead if the homeowner with his AR.

    NEVER have a Craigslist/BookFace exchange at your home.
    “The homeowner told Detective Travis O’Cull that, about an hour before the shooting, a male who he barely remembers from a past Craigslist transaction, knocked on the front door”

    Yep, both open into a large living room, just from different sides. Then a hallway to my bedrooms.

    Sounds a little like my place, minus any real hallways.

    I can stand on my back stoop and see through my front door.

    Now after seeing a picture of those fine young men, I have no doubt that they only came in the house to help that disabled homeowner! They were good boys who had turned their lives around and 2 of them had found Jesus ( or they have now, face to face!). Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!

    There is a little twist being investigated by the Sheriff’s Dept ... there is a possibility the homeowner has some drug connections (marijuana especially). They are not sure of how far it goes but there is might be more to this story.

    I do most all of mine right across the State Police barracks. I have had 2 people not show up over the past 5 years.

    I guess my 60 round AR15 would be just enough for 4 invaders.
