More Evidence that Gun Control Really Works

These gentlemen must have purchased their guns legally, right? And passed a background check, right? By the way, don't open the door if you don't know who it is.

Man shot, 3 hurt in armed home invasion in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS -- A St. Louis man was shot and three other people were injured when four masked gunmen forced their way into a house to rob them early today.

Police say that four black men -- wearing all black clothes, black masks and brandishing guns -- burst into the home at 12:20 a.m. today in the 5500 block of Oriole Avenue near Calvary Cemetery.

The four gunmen knocked on the door of the house. When one of the victims answered the door, the four men forced themselves inside, police said. They demanded money and property from the four victims, police said.

The gunmen assaulted the four people inside the home -- a 51-year-old man, a 32-year-old woman, a 27-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man, police said.

The gunmen then grabbed electronics and money and, as they fled, shot the 51-year-old man in the midsection. The victim was taken to an area hospital where he is in critical but stable condition, police said. The injuries and conditions of the other three victims were not released by police.

Police detectives are searching for the gunmen.

Timman-

This is why Missouri has the Castle Doctrine. It also applies to your car.

I am not advocating violence, just advocating the ability to defend one's family, by any means necessary.

And of course lets also take into consideration exactly WHERE this home invasion occurred.

Let's put it this way, if I go to visit Grandpa at Calvary, I'm bringing the .357 with me.

Trust me, these kind of people are absolutely terrified to go into neighborhoods where presumably you live - exactly because of these kind of racist remarks.

Sad that St. Louis remains one of the worst segregated cities in America, without any real leadership from our religious leaders to help break this. We continue to build mega churches in the county while fleeing the city en masse.

Sad too, that in America, the two biggest building booms are gated communities and jails.

Who made the racist remark? STLCatholic? The PD? The comments? Where is it?

By "these kind of people" do you mean the criminals or the victims? Your unsubstantiated claim doesn't make sense.

However, I think I did gather one tidbit from your statement. You must be one of those people who also thinks that if one makes a statement against our president's policies then that person is racist as well.

As my Grandmother says, "Honestly!"
