Texas Gun Supporters Laud as Hero Neighbor Who Killed Intruders

By Edward Klump, Last Updated: January 16, 2008 01:05 EST

Jan. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Quiet streets in the Houston suburb of Pasadena filled with hundreds of gun supporters and civil- rights activists after homeowner Joe Horn shot two men who broke into his neighbor's house.

``Move, you're dead!'' Horn is heard shouting to the men on the tape of his call to a 911 operator. The warning is followed by the sound of shotgun blasts that killed both intruders. [...]


This is more liberal tripe. The third paragraph is clear in that Mr. Klump somehow thinks that registering a weapon, something that ONLY LAW ABIDING CITIZENS DO, will curb gun violence. How naive is this guy?

If a neighbor killed a couple of intruders in my home, I'd be buying that neighbor free beer for the rest of their life. A neighbor willing to defend my property is a neighbor I want to have.

Note that only those protesting this PERFECTLY LEGAL use of deadly force are socialist progressives with an axe to grind: the New Black Panther Nation.

Isn't Bloomberg supposed to be financial news? I think they should stick to that. They clearly don't have a clue on other issues.

I'd have to dig up the story... it was from last week I think on Fark. But back east they passed a CCW law and watched the gun related death rates for several years. The death rate actually DROPPED from gun related incidents. Draw whatever conclusions you want, but I see this as "If 60% of the city is possibly carrying a concealed weapon, or has one in their home, I am that much LESS likely to actually try to mug/rob/rape/attack someone." And the evidence does back up that conclusion. More people with CCW permits=More people with guns=Less people KILLED by guns.

As far as this incident goes, most of us progressive types have mixed feelings leaning in favor of Mr. Horn. I can understand the idea that the neighbor's property might not have been worth taking a life or two. But by the same token, we, as a nation, believe in the right to personal property, and, facing deadly force, the intruders could/should have sat down in the lawn with their hands up, awaiting arrest. Instead, they gambled that they could get away.
