        More firearm negligence:

        MERCER, Pa. (AP) — A man's handgun went off while he was holding it as he got into his truck in the parking lot of a western Pennsylvania gun store Saturday, and the shot killed his 7-year-old son, authorities said.

        He said he didn't realized there was a bullet in the chamber.

          Stop shooting guns into the air!

            He pointed the gun at the burglar, ordered him to freeze and told his wife to call 911.

            But the burglar wiggled out of the tight space, charged the home owner and punched him hard on the jaw.

            “His jaw is probably busted,” Streif said.

            The homeowner responded by shooting the burglar in the upper left torso, Streif said. The burglar, whom Sumner County Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Yoder identified as a 31-year-old man from the Wichita area, was flown by Eagle Med helicopter to Wesley Medical Center, where he was reported to be in stable condition. He is expected to survive, Yoder said.

                If Only One Life Could Be Saved.....Try Three

                I bet this lady felt perfectly safe in her home until this incident too. This also goes to show that when seconds count, the cops are just minutes away so only morons would leave the defense of their families up to 911:

                LOGANVILLE, Ga. — A Georgia mother hid her two 9-year-old twins and shot an intruder, Paul Ali Slater, several times during a home invasion on Friday, according to multiple media reports.

                The Loganville mother said she didn’t initially answer when someone knocked on her door around 1 p.m. Friday. When the visitor began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, she called her husband at work, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

                He then dialed 911 and his 37-year-old wife gathered their 9-year-old twins and hid them in a crawlspace inside the home.

                When the suspect went into the closet where the family was hiding ,the woman fired six bullets at the suspect, five of which hit alleged suspect Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area.

                “He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,” Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

                The woman fled to a neighbor’s home with her children. The woman and her two children were not injured.

                  Yeah, it's been posted a couple of times, so I just merged with this thread. I started to occasionally post up those stories when I remember to look for them.

                      If you want to sleep with a gun under your pillow, by all means, enjoy it. But you have no right to criticize the decisions of other parents over an issue like this. Unlike you, I don't live my life in fear. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

                                Who lives in fear but you trying to disarm everyone? Go sell your bullshit somewhere else.

                                You want to talk people who live in fear, try your gun free paradise where people are much more afraid to even walk outside at night according to your beloved U.N.

                                The reason why people like you feel so relatively safe is because of people like me, you're just too much of a fanatic to realize it. Evidence, it's a bitch.
