Can the governor pardon people like this?
And if this guy and his family were killed, the Police would just round up the usual suspects.

The gang-bangers played this guy. Too bad they didn’t enter his house. Stopping the threat inside is generally more justifiable than warning shots outdoors according to tactical instructors at places like Blackwater Training Center and Gunsite Academy.

He starts threatening my family, my life. Oh youre dead. Im gonna kill your family and your babies. Youre dead. So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass, Grier said.
The threat of physical violence is legal definition of assault. The home owner has the right to defend himself if he reasonably fears for his life or that of his family.
No way this holds up in court,....
...well, OK, in Texas.

How terrible for this guy—for protecting himself and his family. What a bunch of criminal thugs running that cesspit.
It is the tradition that a Kentuckian never runs. He does not have to...he is not obligated to retreat, nor to consider whether he can safely retreat, but is entitled to stand his ground, and meet any (life-threatening) attack made upon him with a deadly weapon...

Another example that you should never, ever, talk to the cops without consulting a lawyer.
I know you could refer to Uniondale as being in Queens, but I am surprise to see this level of gang activity on Long Island.
Glad I am not in New York any more.

CBS does it once again. The CORRECT headline was - "Long Island Man Arrested For Defending Home With AK-47". But that's not why he was arrested. The article plainly states this.
He was arrested for firing warning shots into his lawn. Initially he's been charged with felony reckless endangerment.
From the article, he wasn't "attacked". A bunch of guys showed up in his driveway, but the article mentions nothing about an "attack".
I sort of hate to say this, but the dumb ass shouldn't have fired warning shots. He shouldn't have brandished the weapon either. He lost an amazing tactical advantage by going OUTSIDE and brandishing it, and he crossed the law when he fired warning shots. Most populated areas have ordinances prohibiting the discharge of firearms, much less firing in the DIRECTION of an individual when there's no clear deadly threat.
As much as it seems "illogical", he should have stayed in the house, WITH the AK and a bunch of spare mags and waited for LEO to arrive. If somebody started coming in, then the rules change. But he made a mistake and got arrested for it.
The See B.S. headline is misleading.
What a pathetic sh*thole NY has become.

The man defending his home should get a medal for defending himself against that scum.
If only he had killed them all. If he had, he should’ve been awarded a cash prize!

Firing “warning shots” are illegal in most states.

His REAL transgression—threatening to remove democrat voters and the eventual breeders of democrat voters from the population. That is the MOST unforgivable of crimes in New York.
He said the whole deal happened as he was about to drive his cousin home.
Don't they ever check grammar any more? I think the proper ebonics here is "he cousin home."
If I’m ever surrounded by a group gangbangers threatening my family’s life, I can guaran-damn-tee it will be on the 6:00 news.

Never ever fire “warning” shots. Shoot to kill or do not shoot at all. By telling the police that you fired a “warning” shot, you are confessing that you did not feel you or another were in mortal peril; getting there, perhaps, but not yet there. In this man’s case, the “warning” shots should have been fired into the middle of someone’s chest. That would serve to “warn” the others to be someplace else.
(And tactically speaking, he probably should have gone back inside his house. I don’t know if NY has a Castle Doctrine law, but he would have the advantage inside his own home even if he wasn’t legally obligated to retreat. He knows the layout while the goblins don’t. He would also have had incontrovertible proof that his life was in danger.)
