The days of attacks by individual bad guys is over.
From metropolitan Philadelphia, PA to tiny Wilmer, AL, to North Woodmere, Long Island, NY, to Suitland, MD, and Pine Township, IN, home invaders are now commonly showing up in teams of 2-4 violent, armed criminals, willing to murder you and your family to get what the want.
The video above is startlingly realistic in a number of ways:
- The first intruder it shot at four times at close range with no discernible reaction other than slowly slumping to the ground. Entrance wounds from handguns do not create a huge geyser of blood in the real world, and bullets do not throw bad guys across the room.
- The first four shots do not immediately stop the invader. Even if all four shots were dead-center hits to the heart that would kill the suspect, he may remain conscious for at least another 5-15 seconds…more than enough time to kill the homeowner. Only an shot to tiny part of the brain that controls motor movement can immediately shut down a human being.
- A downed invader is dangerous as long as he’s breathing. Presumably hit as many as four times, the invader still has enough determination to raise his gun towards the homeowner a second time, requiring two more follow up shots.
- The 2-4 seconds it takes to change magazines and bring an empty handgun back into action is more time than you have. The homeowner had but one bullet left from his seven round magazine when the second invader made his appearance, and he managed to hit him one time before his slide locked back on an empty chamber. If he had a standard-capacity 9mm service pistol, he would have between 13-19 rounds in his magazine, presumably enough to continue pressing the attack on the second home invader until he was no longer a threat. Instead, he was gunned down, presumably along with his wife (who dropped the phone) and daughters.
This is an example of an all-to possible reality thanks to the power-mad legislators behind the NY SAFE Act. I encourage every New Yorker to violate this law, and obtain the same standard-capacity magazines that New York law enforcement agencies use to defend their officer’s lives.
Violating NY SAFE to defend your family is the only “common sense solution,” to governor and legislature that have gone mad.
