  • Another "responsible" gun owner and its a "question" as to whether there'll be an investigation or that the "responsible" gun owner would face charges? Yea, 'Murica doesn't have a gun problem, yay Tejas. "Happy" birthday, indeed.

    It wasn't immediately clear if an investigation would be launched over the shooting, or whether the unnamed family member who was in possession of the firearm would face charges.

    Have you no empathy?  How about: what a terrible tragedy....someone lost their life.  Someone killed another person  Over stealing some stuff out of their garage.  

    You think people become burglars just for fun?  What leads someone to steal from another's home?  How do we prevent it? 

    Maybe we create a system that provides better paying jobs.  A system that provides better education for those jobs.  A system that provides adequate support for people who lose their jobs.  A system that doesn't bankrupt people for the cost of basic healthcare.  

    I think people with your mentality just want an opportunity to kill another person, and waiting for any excuse to do it.  Only think in terms of punish, fine, jail, kill.  Hardly the voice of reason.

    don't even engage. we all know what she's all about. ignore and eventually will disappear like all negative garbage.

    celebrating the death of another is par for the course with this one. disgusting.

    This person was able to effectively stop the perp, but it is unfortunate that he died of his wounds.  No happy endings for anyone here.  The homeowner is going to have to live with the fact they killed someone and the mental trauma that accompanies that, along with potential legal battles.  What a terrible day for all involved.  Sad when bad decisions lead to this kind of outcome.

    That’s right, the homeowner won the stupidest prize of all...living with the guilt of murdering a person over possessions and a probable prison sentence.

    Police seldom prevent crime,they arrive only after. Possessions can be replaced,lives can not. If my life or that of my loved ones would be endangered,I wouldn't hesitate to use lethal force in protecting them. Other than that,I couldn't ever point a firearm at somebody over anything other than that.

    that's not really true. their presence alone can be preventative. but if you simply mean they aren't on the scene as quick as batman, your statement would be correct.

    .I would assume the fear of getting caught has got to be a factor. Like HFD said, no they don't shop up like batman and stop a crime. But I would certainly speed a lot more if I knew there weren't any police to give tickets. That probably goes for shoplifting, steeling cars, etc. I would consider that police preventing crime.

    Another “responsible” gun owner. 23 million guns sold in the US this past year, 8 million to first time gun owners. What could go wrong?

    Unfortunately sometimes they kill their own parents. My wife is a teacher, and last year one of her former student's 3 year old son got ahold of a gun and shot and killed his own mother. Unbelievably tragic and senseless.

    No. I am not sure who actually owned the gun that killed her. The Dad and Mom weren't in a relationship or living together when it happened. It could have been her gun.

    A whole lot of "responsible" gun owning going on.

    The Transportation Security Administration said Tuesday that it detected twice as many firearms per million passengers at airport security checkpoints in 2020 than it did in 2019.

    The agency announced that it found about 10 firearms per million passengers screened last year, compared with about five firearms per million passengers screened a year earlier.

    Though the number of firearms found decreased — 3,257 in 2020 compared with a record 4,432 in 2019 — the rate per passenger was the highest since the agency was founded in 2001. About 83 percent of the firearms found were loaded, the TSA said in a statement.

    The increased rate came during a year of substantially less air travel amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    Darby LaJoye, executive assistant administrator for TSA security operations, commended officers for catching the weapons at checkpoints.

    “Firearms are strictly prohibited onboard planes in the passenger cabin,” LaJoye said in a statement. “Bringing a firearm to a TSA security checkpoint poses a serious risk to TSA officer and passenger safety.”

    Firearms were found at more than 230 airports across the country, the agency said. Those who bring firearms to a checkpoint may face arrest or fines of more than $13,000.

    There were 220 weapons detected at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the most in the country. The top 10 list:

    1. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) 220

    2. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) 176

    3. Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) 126

    4. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) 124

    5. Denver International Airport (DEN) 104

    6. Nashville International Airport (BNA) 94

    7. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) 87

    8. Orlando International Airport (MCO) 79

    9. Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) 72

    10. Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) 71

    While Washington-area airports did not make the top 10, Baltimore-Washington International Marshall Airport recorded the most weapons detected in the region last year, as it has since 2017.
