Your home is your castle

This is good to see:

A suburban Detroit homeowner was charged Friday with second-degree murder in the death of a 19-year-old woman who was shot in the face while on his front porch nearly two weeks ago.

Theodore P. Wafer, 54, of Dearborn Heights, also faces a manslaughter charge in the death of Renisha McBride, who was killed on Nov. 2, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said.

Police say McBride was shot a couple of hours after being involved in a nearby car accident. Family members say she likely approached Wafer’s home for help.

I wonder if this is one of those times when having a gun prevented a crime, in this case knocking on someone’s door. This, though, is obviously wrong:

The shooting has drawn attention from civil rights groups that called for an investigation and believe race was a factor in the shooting — McBride was black; prosecutors said Wafer is white.

because race is never a factor.

    Tactical sense and tactical planning are needed if you have a gun for home defense. http://gunsafetyblog.com/2013/11/12/initial-thoughts-on-the-renisha-mcbride-killing/
