MILLINGTON, Md.- Maryland State Police say the victim of a weekend home invasion fired gunshots at the suspect, who remains at-large after fleeing the scene.

The incident reportedly occurred shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 14 at a home on the 31000 block of River Road in Millington.

Troopers met with the victim who stated that an unknown male suspect broke into the home before assaulting him and fleeing the scene on foot.

According to police, an initial investigation revealed that the suspect forced access through a screen door located at the rear of the home. Police said the investigation also revealed that the victim fired two rounds from his registered Davis .38-caliber handgun. It is unknown if the suspect was struck by either round.

Eastern Shore, as different from Baltimore as Alabama is from NYC.

Oh yes, once you get away from Baltimore and the Counties in close proximity to WASHDC a lot of sanity arises.

Trouble is the mentioned areas have the most people....and are overwhelmingly represented by the ‘takers’ and Govt Employees.

I think it’s a requirement that one have a special talent for cluelessness in order to be a bureaucrat.

His “registered” handgun? Is there a registration process in MD that I’m not aware of?

There is no "registration" or "FOID" sort of nonsense in MD. There is a "Saturday Night Special" ban and a training requirement to own a handgun (you fill out a web form and take a no-brainer quiz) but nothing more.

In the rare event that the media must discuss handgun use by civilians, they invariably refer to the handguns as "registered" or "licensed" even in states without any such schemes. I believe that this is calculated, to get people used to the notion of licensing and registration.

fired gunshots at the suspect, who remains at-large after fleeing the scene...

Hopefull that police might have gotten something to follow his trail. Something easy to follow, like the color Red.

Kent County...salt of the earth kind of place. We spent a few days there last month (Chestertown). It was refreshing. You don't get many Baltimorons there. It's actually closer to Wilmington, DE.

That said, Maryland's Eastern Shore has it's own issues. The entitlement mentality is not absent. It's no coincidence that H. Rap Brown got a riot started in Easton. There are a few places that aren't safe, mostly in the towns. It probably explains this story.

The “home invasion” dillema is this -

what if the “invaders” are shouting “POLICE” while they’re doing it?

Of course, the solution to this is for the police to make it a matter of policy that they never perform home invasions,
so the homeowner always knows that the invaders are NOT police.

That's potentially a big problem, but it has an easy solution. Require the police to turn on cruiser sirens and lights the instant they hit the door. Let the people inside know it's really the police.

No sirens, no lights? Then it's not the police coming through your door.

I live in Kent county. The small town of Millinton is very nice. It is ten miles from my home.

I have a “snake” pistol for protection. It fires a special 410 cal. Round that will remove a wooden door from ten feet. It can do that 5 times wtthout reloading. At night it looks an sounds like a volcano erupting .

I like my solution better - no LEO home invasions.
Serve the warrant by knocking on the door with your sidearm holstered.

You are correct. Sorry...not enough coffee yet.

I should remember the details because my dad's NG regiment was put on alert for riot control. Dad's battalion was nuclear-cleared and attached to ARADCOM and thus to SAC, so they got an exemption from the duty. But the unit was still put on lockdown which meant he didn't get home for a couple of days. I was a little kid but I recall the tension well.

If it’s still the same as 10 years ago, all handguns purchased in MD were “registered” by the fact that a spent shell casing provided by the manufacturer had to be sent to the state police, who keep it on file in the lost hope that it might identify the gun owner from casings found at a crime scene. I don’t believe that that has actually led to any convictions, but in any case, the state has a record of the purchase. A handgun purchaser must also have a certificate of training (which is what you were talking about), which is also kept on file with the state police, and which must be presented at the time of purchase.
