    I cannot imagine committing a home invasion robbery, but then again I could not steal a piece of bubblegum from the corner market either. It must take extreme desperation or heavy-duty drugs to even consider doing something like this. At least there is one less of them in the world now, too bad he did not get them all.

    One down 3 to go.. a properly utilized 12 GA shotgun could have upped the score

    If they break and enter in WA state they are fair game

    I admit, never think about the possibility of 4 assailants, I always picture one or two..

    Lucky? For who?

    I suppose it depends on one's perspective.

    Lucky for the bad guys, though they don't deserve it.

    People are breaking into homes during the day more often than early morning hours.The thieves believe no one is home and assume they are at work.They may have knocked and realized /thought no one was home as it said he was asleep and decided to break and enter.It sucks that we have to go about living and have to be armed at all times to be safe from thieves and killers/rapists.You will see more of this for sure.I cannot imagine having to sit on my couch armed while watching TV and have someone bust in the door but that is what things have come to anymore.Sad days.

    Yes - lot of times when they just see someone leaving for work, especially with no second car in the driveway.

    Home invasions are really very rare. More time should be spent on securing your home when you are NOT there. Amazing that most people make zero effort. No 3" deck screws securing door parts, no cameras, no steel door jams, no secured windows or sliding glass doors - nothing. Just a wimpy front door w/ 3/4" screws into soft wood.

    In a twisted way I have to chuckle thinking about some meth head picking some of the member's homes here as targets for a home invasion. Geezus Christ! "AK by the bed, .45 under the pillow, 12g by the bedroom door" etc. Hamburger helper. Poor meth head would be walking right into a meat grinder.

    I rather enjoy being armed while sitting on the couch watching TV. Or doing anything else, for that matter.... :)

    Crow bar or not,are we supposed to do an interview as to what the invader is wanting today?
    Remember how many weapons you have in your house,that aren't firearms.
    Go walk around and do an inventory of the everyday things that would hurt real bad or kill you if used against you.
    Start in the kitchen,with just the pans.
    Then to your kids sport bag

    With a decent lawyer,you should never have to go to court for shooting someone invading your house.

    Oregon state law explicitly names "burglary in a dwelling" as a justification for lethal force:

    My house looks like a medieval armory. I am not waiting to see which weapon they have pulled off the wall

    Of all the days of the week they break into his house on his day off and had to break into a retired LEO's home.

    It hopefully sends a strong msg to would be burglars... People have been arming themselves and are not afraid of using it to defend themselves.
