Let's see.... weapons (probably stolen) and multiple burglaries. Hmmm, that ought to be good for at least 25 days in jail.
Anyway, thank you to the S.R. police for a quick batch of arrests. Every time this happens it should send the message that we aren't to be messed with on this side of the hills.
I just hope our DA office and the judge do their job half as well.

Our excuses for prosecutors are pretty sad, no argument there. But this so-called "home invasion" sounds more like a burglary of a house where no one was home. If that's correct, how would a gun have helped? In fact, having a gun anywhere but a very heavy, secure safe would increase chances of the burglars getting their hands on it. Only a small percentage of home break-in's occur while the house is occupied. The rest happen when no one is home. How do you think criminals get half of their weapons to start with? Well, that and idiotically "liberal" gun shows where anyone can walk in a buy a rocket launcher.

Ok sheep, so enjoy being a victim. I choose to fight back.

Dave, perhaps Danville isn't the right place for you. I hear the Deep South is more friendly for your political views.

I agree with Joe above, perhaps Brentwood, Modesto would better fit his politically ideology.

Funny guy you are! What wit. NPR has taught you well, little drone! Why dont you put another NPR sticker on your pink Prius so the Oakland gangbangers know its safe to rob your little section 8 apartment? For the rest of us sane people who know its our right to protect our families we'll keep our Glocks.....

I agree with Joe and Bill especially based on the last post from Dave. Definitely over the top! Let's start a collection to help Dave relocate!

Dave- - you're right on! Libs are not going to rest in their vocal efforts to out-post you, but in the long run, the vast majority of us side with law and order as well as just punishment for criminals, home invaders, burglars, and the like.

I prefer to leave law enforcement up to the trained professionals, i.e., Police Officers and their counterparts. Not to some person like Dave who has an axe to grind and probably prefers to harken back to the ol' Wild, Wild West days of shoot 'em up.

Mike-
The reason libs "outpost" rational, normal people is because libs dont have jobs like us .... They leech off the system and vent their aggression on local rag websites so they can feel powerful....think of them as whiny children.....

Dave's posts are considered rational and by normal people? Wow! Unbelievable! In fact, downright scary!

Dave (and Faux Nuus fan Mike)-

You still haven't answered my basic question - a very simple one: How on earth would your gun have helped if you were not even home to use it?

And if you were at home some evening, and a group of armed maniacs broke into your home, would you be wearing your gun in a holster? Perhaps parading it around town at Starbucks? And if you did not have it handy in a holster, or sitting on the coffee table in front of you, what then would you do? Ask the kindly hooded invaders if they would mind waiting a moment while you loaded your glock?
If someone kicked my door down - very unlikely here in whitebreadville - sure, I would prefer to have a glock handy too. But in my heart I know it would as likely get me killed as save me. That's because this lib lives in "reality world".

Thank God for Americans like Dave who knows his constitutional rights. Wish the libtards here would walk into Oakland and hand out daisies. Lock and load.

That's right derek-the-sheep You go ahead and wring your hands in your mommy's basement wondering how in the world people could imagine taking care of themselves! It's sooooo hard! No worries, little man, mommy will keep your trust fund checks coming. Go make a $5 pledge to NPR you sheep.

Dave-
Let me save you some time: All you had to say is
"I am utterly incapable of answering a simple question Derek"

When we read an article here about a local man who did this-

I guess we will all know who it is.

Whatever side of the aisle you are on politically doesn't matter, if you were home and someone invaded it, you can choose to sit there or defend yourself. If you sit there then you might get assaulted or worse. If you defend yourself you might scare them away or avert the burglary. Go ahead you decide when the time comes. I prefer to defend myself cause I'm not going to hold hands with the burglars and try to reason with them. But I'm sure there are those who will.


Posted by Brian, a resident of Danville

Yes, Annie Oakley (Diana), I'm sure you would defend yourself. Unless you had the gun on your person, how would you fight back? The offenders did not make an announcement before breaking in.

I'd like the option to defend and fight back, but I don't want to sit in my living room with a gun in a holster.

No one has responded to Derek, but I like the back and forth. The house was empty at the time of the invasion. How would a gun have helped?

I understand that teanuts and gun-nuts and Fox-nuts are not the brightest group of individuals residing on our planet. But really, do none of you have basic reading comprehension skills at all? Can you not see the contradiction in the wording of this article, or are you so used to feeding on only the briefest of soundbites that you cannot get past the first paragraph of any story? For God's sake open the #@&%ing link and read it.

The first paragraph claims a "home invasion", but if you can muster the effort to read just another two very short paragraphs, it clearly states that "allegedly running from the burglary scene after the resident returned home".
Since IQ's have apparently dropped sharply in Danville, let me use tiny words: The homeowner was not there to confront or shoot anyone. He was a minute too late.
Does Dave's magic pistol shoot people when he's not home? Does he have his house rigged to explode if unknown persons penetrate his private premises? Do they solicit brain tissue donations at gun shows?
It really scares me that I live in a community that by all appearances should be populated with smart people, yet on these boards all evidence is directly in contradiction to that.
I am as happy as anyone that the perps are in custody, and like most, I am pessimistic about their chances of staying in jail for the length of time they probably deserve. But none of that has anything to do with how an unlocked gun in an unoccupied house can help the situation described above. A real home invasion is a different argument but as I stated above, you still need to have the gun not only readily at hand, but you also need to be a step ahead of the invaders.
Dave - and most of the other posters here - are clearly not bright enough to answer a single one of the questions I posed here.

"Dave" is nothing but a troll, trying to use a story about the police successfully solving a crime and the prosecutor bringing appropriate charges against the alleged criminals to indulge his vague pro-gun and vigilante rantings.

Yes......they bring the charges.....yes, moronic lib-tard judges let the punks out of jail in 24 hours......yes the punks come back laughing to rob san ramon and danville homes.......uhm, yes i am pro-gun.....you should be too! Better not come into my house, punks......

I'm really surprised Dave doesn't speak sheep. You would think he could have picked it up by now. I don't need to go into details.

Please answer Derek's question.

The name calling doesn't really get to the heart of the matter. The point everyone is trying to make is whether they have the ability or willingness to defend themselves. Some are parsing by saying owner wasn't there and it wasn't a home invasion, yahdah, yahdah. Ok, so what? I still say you can defend yourself however you choose or not. This is up to you. Of course, the reader who called me Annie Oakley is antigun. I wish him luck if he ever has to defend himself against an aggressor in or out of his home. (I can tell you people I know who would have never considered a weapon in past have bought them recently due to increased crime - real or imagined.) These are lots of boomers who were once liberal in most cases, yet have guns. Guess they don't want to be defenseless.

If they continue to engage in criminal behavior they will end up in prison.
