You can interpret it that way, but I don't. The specific idea of including the types of stories you reference (attacker losing gun) is to counter the idea that the attacker will just take away a victim gun.

I wouldn't hazzard a guess. Feel free to start a thread to discuss it!

In other news, Homeowner shoots, kills intruder in Pamlico County
Quote:
The home invasion call came in at 3:04 a.m. and sheriff's deputies responded. The sheriff said three people broke into the home; there were five people inside at the time.

Deputies said the homeowner shot and killed one of the intruders. The sheriff's office has not released the identities of the deceased man or the other suspects.
With 3 assailants, larger magazines are a plus.
