So, this idiot allows intruders into his home. They beat him and intimidate his family in his own home, and of course, he has no way to deal with them because he obviously has no guns. He deserves it!

If this sort of thing happened in my neighborhood, the bodies of these young jackals would be stacked like cord wood. That's why it would never happen in my neighborhood!

Thats rediculous!!! Some day soon a mob is going to come across the wrong guy he will drop as many as he can until he doesn't feel threatened and you know what gonna happen next. An even bigger mob will come. What then? I just hope that me and my family are well prepared.

But the attackers pounded on his front windows and kicked his wooden door so hard, it flew open and some of them entered his house.
Let the bodies hit the floor

Sorry...that right there would equate to 7 rounds of 00 buck being pumped into said doorway as fast as I could operate the slide...

Madness...sheer and total madness and "pack mentality" right there

No, no he doesn't. Just because someone doesn't have any guns they deserve to kit the $h!t beat out of 'em. I don't think so.

If you don't do what you have to do to protect yourself and your family in this day and age, then sorry, you do deserve whatever happens ... I do think so!

This guy took in two young teens who needed help from a mob, those are NOT intruders, he was innocent and trying to help. HE DID lock his door which was beaten down, if you read the article or heard about it in the news.

A innocent man was beaten for trying to help TEENAGERS, in NO way is that deserved at all. Now, I do agree I would have used a firearm to protect myself. Once the door was broken down.

But, if you feel this man deserved it, does that mean the other white gentleman who was shot sitting on his stoop by a 15 year old trying to rob him was deserved as well?

Wow...that's all I can say but best be sure that if that happened to my family and I we would all be locked and loaded not necessarily to shoot and ask questions later but more as a deterrent we aren't in a nation wide SHTF scenario and it sounds like LEO was not to far behind...I wonder what the legal ramifications would be if a mob broke into your house and you started shooting...it's not as cut and dry as if a single assailant broke in with a weapon and threatened your life... I ponder

It is interesting how when something completely unrelated to you and your concerns happens, it becomes really easy to make it all about you and whatever it is you care about. White kid pushes a black kid and some of them laugh about it. Black friends and family assume white racism and go on the chase to continue the fight. At this point some white people assume that this is because "those people are naturally violent". That dance goes in a circle round and round.

And of course, the people here with guns on their mind make it all about why everyone should be more heavily armed. I'm sure someone else would make a case that one of the attackers had a gun and therefore we need stricter gun controls. :p

Where you live (IL), you might go to jail, who knows with all of the stupid gun laws there. Free states have a castle law in which case, it's fair game. A felony (B&E) is committed & you're in the clear to stop it. The bodies will fall as fast as you can pull the trigger & there can be no consequences against you legally.

He tried to protect his family by getting the rest of them out of harms way:
Inside his house, LaVelle, 37, called to his wife, Kim, 30, to go to their bedroom with their twin 13-month-old boys, Mark and Mason, and to call police. He also ordered his two other sons, 11 and 17, and his nephew, 7, to stay upstairs.
He did what he could with what he had available. It's not like he welcomed in the mob. They broke down his door. Of course I think he should have a gun and I would have used mine had I been in his position, but just because the person doesn't have a gun doesn't mean they deserve a beating, especially for trying to help out some innocents who may or may not have even been involved in the initial incident.

I can't get over the fact that one of the kids mothers came by a day or two later to continue banging on the door threatening him and his family.

What the hell is going on in this country?

I've always wondered why IL has such crap gun control laws... I was told it was because of all the gangsters in the 20's..it's almost like they are empowering the criminals and hindering the LAW ABIDING citizen

Thank God for 30 round magazines.

Anyone who still tries to claim there is no reason to have a magazine larger than 10 rounds is delusional.

It's one thing to risk your life to help someone, it's another to risk your families as well. He's a brave guy who risked a lot to help those kids.

In Texas...anyone kicks in your front door (whether it single or mob)...you have legal precedence to use deadly force

And a pipe, and a knife, and their fists, and their feet...kinda defeats your "stricter gun laws" when it was abundantly apparent they wanted to do PHYSICAL and LETHAL harm to those involved..

This is the first instance in which I think the use of slugs in a shotgun would be appropriate. It seems like the best round to use when a mob has shown up at your front door and are trying to get in. With a shotgun having such limited capacity and a handgun having such limited effect, being able to maximize your defensive effect per round would seem appropriate, hence, shotgun with slugs.
