It is getting to the point where you need to conceal carry at all times and have a firearm hidden in every room of your house.
Good shooting, Citizen. Civilization thanks you.
It's been that way for some time now in many areas of this country.

While I would not hesitate to pull the trigger to protect my family I would likely have an emotional reaction afterward. As it should be. Only the sociopathic criminals can take a life with out blinking decent God fearing people can recognize something is necessary but still feel sad that the deed had to be done
I would only regret and be sorry that someone placed my family in peril and me in the position of having to kill or maim the perps. I would be joyous if my family and my self were not harmed.
After being robbed and shot in 1974, and still carrying the .32cal bullet near my spine, I’ve CCW’d ever since. Changed me from a moderate to a Conservative, real damned quick. I won’t be a victim, twice.
“What we definitely dont regret, though, is that Covington is a permit-carrying gun owner.”
Thankfully this citizen had the wisdom to excercise his right to apply in writing for an expensive discretionary temporary self defense permit well in advance any attack.
I’m always thankful when the criminals are dead before they rape the women.
I recall a quote, something to the effect that “Liberals finding a woman raped and strangled to death with her panty hose morally superior to a woman holding a smoking gun standing over the corpse of a would be rapist” I don’t know where it’s from but I’ve seen it several times and I do believe it to be accurate.
I am never more than 18” away from a weapon. If I’m awake, it’s on my person. If I’m asleep, it’s on the nightstand.
I believe it.
Your spouse would be ticked at you for making a mess in the house, though. ;-)
These jackass media people are such idiots.
It can be the right thing to do and you’d do it again and it can ALSO still haunt/bother you that you had to do it.
They make it an either-or which means whoever wrote and edited those stories has never thought about it or been through it themselves. But they think they know what they are talking about, and don’t.
Yes everyone will have some kind of reaction if they are normal. It varies.
However I tell you it would not bother me that much at all if it’s a clear thief/murderer attacking me or my family. I’d feel good that that person would never harm anyone else where I live, in the town I live in, ever, ever again. That I’d actually done something good for the area I live in. Really would not care about the person’s backstory, or why they were the way they were. None of that crap.
Covington fatally shot one of the suspects, prompting the second man to flee the scene. ... The injured thief was later identified as 35-year-old Joseph Goudeau, who had recently been released from prison. The other suspect is still at large ...
Poor reporting. Was the ‘suspect’ ‘fatally shot’ or was he just an ‘injured thief’?

Fatally shot is a subset of "injured thief". Could be better word usage, I am sure, but not mutually contradictory.
