    I am starting this thread to illustrate that when home invasions occur, calling 911/police won't help at that moment and home owners may need to defend their and their family's lives.

    Yes -- in metro Atlanta, a week does not go by without media reports of innocent civilians saving their own lives or the lives of other innocents with lawful use of firearms.

    Thank you. Sadly, home owners being victimized and killed by intruders far outnumber the incidents where home owners successfully defend their lives.

    After much contemplation of recent events, I thought it was constructive to illustrate the need for self-defense by home owners and CCW.
