Give Householders Guns as Gardai can't keep modern thugs at bay!

Another harrowing tale of a Garda's Partner attacked in their own Home with a knife held to their throat while Children slept in their beds.

The Attack comes just weeks after a violent asault on another Garda's spouse in her own home which was a second raid on her home in weeks.

It is obvious that armed or unarmed Gardai cannot secure the safety of individuals in their own homes. Even if we had twice as many Gardai it would not be possible.

It is time to allow people the means to defend themselves against attackers in the next step after allowing people the right to defend themselves as the right without the means is of little benefit on it's own.

Criminals who break into people's homes should have to face the prospect that the home and its occupants will be defended with suitable firearms.

Policing can only be a reactive response to attacks on homes and their occupants.

A revolver makes a much better home defence weapon!

Besides pumps are only allowed to hold 2 in the bottom and one in the chamber!

The latest attack on a Garda's family took place in Charlestown as opposed to the double attack in Castlebar!

So, yet another hysterical thread brought to you by the thread-spunker that is IbMo.

This is rubbish Ib, there is no call at all for arming the nation, nor even the Gardai.

You need to stop jumping everytime a story flashes across your eyes.

There are over 25,000 homes broken into each year. Why should anyone be at the mercy of violent thugs breaking into their homes!

Why not allow people to defend themselves with suitable guns?
What's the first thing criminals will do if they are breaking into a house where they think the owner will have a gun?

They'll bring a bigger gun, and probably shoot before they get shot.

In 2011, there were an estimated 2,188,005 burglaries in the US—an increase of 0.9 percent when compared with 2010 data.
So householders owning guns does not prevent burglary.

My stats are from here:
FBI — Burglary

Where did you get your 25,000 figure from?

So it will end up with this kind of situation?
Trespassers will be shot.
Survivors will be shot again.
