That's the idea anyway....

some of us American gun owners really don't want to hurt people and think life is valuable enough to make sure it's not taken unjustly and only as a last resort....sadly, there are tons of other American gun owners who would love the opportunity to shoot a person to death. I will never understand that mindset.

Police in Colorado Springs were called to respond to a report of a burglary on the city's north side and arrived at the scene to find the girl gravely injured from a gunshot wound, according to a police statement.

The girl was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead, said police spokesman Larry Herbert.

"It has been determined that the victim's stepfather is the individual who shot the firearm, striking the victim who was a resident of the involved home," police wrote in a statement.

No other details about the shooting, nor the identities of the victim or her stepfather, were released.

Herbert said no arrests had been made and the case was referred to the district attorney's office to determine whether criminal charges were warranted.

Colorado's so-called "Make My Day" law allows members of the public who face a home invasion to use deadly force if the intruder is believed to be committing a crime, immunizing the home owner from criminal prosecution or civil liability.

Didn't this happen recently with a man and his daughter?

I understand your point but when it comes to training for home defense, you are in a defensive mode and the main concern is safety....which means (for the average person) trying not to engage a potentially armed intruder. The average gun owner flat out doesn't have the skill set needed to safely clear a room or a home (most may think they do but realistically they don't). When you take a gun safety course, they will tell you the same thing.

Also keep in mind that me saying 'the police have been called....stay back, I have a gun' in no way puts me at a disadvantage (so long as I move after I speak so they don't just shoot at my voice obviously). It informs the intruder that, not only is law enforcement on the way but if the intruder wants to use me as a hostage, they will be walking head on into a gun fight....they have to be overly confident or suicidal to blindly enter a room with a person they feel is armed. I mean, even with a gun would you blindly try to enter a room with a person who claims is armed....you don't know where in the room the person is, what they are armed with (in my case, you'd be met with a 12ga and I'd be behind cover) or if they are alone (in my case, there would be a good chance that my wife would also be armed)? So declaring you have a gun would be wise in a home defense situation. If you were a cop or in a more tactical situation, obviously giving away anything isn't smart....
