A real shame, that shouldn't happen to anyone...

I have become increasingly paranoid about home invasions and now have a ccw on me nearly all the time. Recently Texas has passed The Castle Doctrine Law which states that you are under no obligation to retreat in your home, car or place of business before using deadly force. I will not hesitate to take advantage of it if the need arrises to stop an assailant. The key to efficient self defense is to be in a state of alertness at all times, even in the most seemly, secure, places. Admittedly it's very hard to do but we should make every effort to do so as often as possible. Maybe this is the lesson to be learned from this tragedy.
Hope they catch the SOB(s)!!
