kfor.com reports that a Choctaw, Oklahoma a resident and his wife “told police that three men, who claimed to be police officers, came to the door and asked if they had any guns in the home.” Well that’s a fine how-do-you-do. “When the man said yes, the alleged suspects forced their way into the home and ordered the couple to show them where the guns were located.”
I don’t think this one qualifies as “It Should Have Been A Defensive Gun Use.” When three armed men show up at your door, the chances of a successful armed defense are lower than a snake’s belly. Then again . . .
Who’s to say the home invaders aren’t going to assassinate you and your family In Cold Blood? What would you do in this situation?
[NB: I’d caution anyone who sees police at the door to make sure they’re cops, but how do you do that, exactly? Ask for ID before opening the door? Yell at them through a closed door and call the station for confirmation? I guess . . .]
