    It’s stories like this that justify my view on gun ownership. I’ve owned guns all my life. Yes, in my younger years I did own a couple of Bushmaster assault rifles, mostly for shooting up abandoned cars in the quarries of MA.
    Now I own a much lower profile of weapons. I also take advantage of the low cost and simplicity of video surveillance. If your at my front door, you’ve already been on video for a little while.
    Given the seemingly flagrant increase in home invasions,I feel it’s irresponsible to even consider the banning of guns. My town has no police department, and county coverage is light. I can’t imagine a scenario that would protect me from people like the ones arrested in this story. I need to protect myself and my property and I will be video taped every step of the way. I’m not some big second amendment nut, I just feel it’s everyone’s right to be safe in their own home. My home is after all my castle, and a gun is cheaper than digging a mote around the trailer……..
