The house was first held up Monday night. NewsChannel 36 spoke exclusively with the Deadmon family after the first home invasion. They told us how the robbers forced them to open the safe at gunpoint. They reported the robbery to police, and they believe that's why the suspects returned.
The family had placed several shotguns around the house because of Monday's crime.
"No one needs to carry a gun at home. What are you--paranoid or something?"
Not yet, but I'm getting there.
When police arrived at the home, they found one man shot in the garage. He was wearing black clothing, a black mask and a bulletproof vest.
Ya got that last part, right? All of us had better let that one sink in deeply. These aren't unsubstantiated rumors floating about the Intertubz any longer. Yes, the bad guys are wearing body armor. They are armed, armored and deadly serious.
We, the armed citizenry, need to become deadly serious as well. Time to start practicing those "failure to stop" drills, or as G. Gordon Liddy once said in another context, "Head shots! Head shots!" Don't have your concealed carry permit? Get it. Don't practice? Start.
There are monsters out there, and not just on Halloween.
