No question: Protect the familyLet me first say what a tragedy the shooting of 17-year-old Joel LaFromboise is. But, what if it happened in your house? Where was the parental guidance?
If someone strolled into my house where I have a wife and two girls living under my roof and I confronted an intruder of any age, picked up a weapon – whether it’s a baseball bat or hockey stick or rifle – and the intruder grabbed it and tried to turn it on me, no questions asked, I’d protect my family.
I think it’s insane to blame the person of the household. Get a grip and put the blame on those who instigated this tragic home invasion.
