    Disarm home owners and the criminals will still have guns to invade your home.

    This is what happens when a Home owner is not armed. He ended up dead!

    A heroic father is dead after he tried to protect his 11-year-old daughter from two heavily armed men during a home invasion.

    Police say the incident occurred late Tuesday night in Miami after two black males entered the home with the intent to rob. The dad, identified as Maurice Harris, 36, jumped up and fought the suspects when they attempted to enter his 11-year-old daughter’s bedroom. The dad was fatally shot “several times†during the scuffle.
    No mention as to whether or not he owned a gun to protect his family.

    I hope he didn't hurt them when he died; there could have been a lawsuit!

    I blame the CIA and its Black Ops program to flood the ghetto with crack in the 80s :coffee:

    Why didn't he just call the police? Didn't he know the government is there to protect us?

    Not the point. Dawg claims he wasn't armed and the news report says there's no mention whether he was or not.

    Take the guns the criminals will still have them. Law abiding citizens are sitting ducks.

    Police records show Harris has several convictions dating back to 2003, including for cocaine possession, intent to distribute cocaine, marijuana possession, and occupied burglary. Police believe he was targeted.

    Well then to me that's exactly the point... this is what happens if you cannot defend yourself, or your child.

    Yeah I agree. Gotta be armed when you're involved with drugs.
