    Dang, they picked the wrong house to rob. If it were me in the story I’d probably have engaged with my concealed while fighting towards another gun. At least the good guys didn’t get hurt.

    An angry bullet shot out of the AK is now on the loose and targeting schools.

    I read the story this AM. Reminds me of the Oklahoma kid that confronted and killed 2 Home invaders with an AR. He wasn’t charged either.......great story. Needs to happen and get publicized more often. I am sure the criminal activity goes down after an event like this where they happen. Decades ago there was a rash of car jacking around Riverside California until one guy tried to hijack a car leaving a fast food drive through. Both the people in the car were Sheriffs deputies (married couple) that promptly shot the assailant dead. There were few car jacking for years in the area after that. It always works but has to be publicized.

    I think this is a good enough reason for us all to get an AK and practice shooting them in close quarters. :D

    and of course they include a video of bad guys with AKs. Don't want to stray from the narrative. When you are being shot at, the cops are minutes away.

    About 30 minutes in my case. I think I'd trust the AK more than a cop in my case. o_O

    When the cops get to a house and there is still live fire going on who are the cops supposed to shoot at? The guys with the hand guns or the guy with the AK47?

    I am happy to hear that the guy was able to defend himself. And I am happy to hear the AK47 came in on the side of the good guy. It seems like if the cops got there a little earlier this story could have ended much more tragically.
