PG recently got a message email about the second amendment. It starts off like this:

A true story: A single woman heard a burglar breaking in her back door…when the police arrived they found the woman raped with her throat cut lying across a bloody bed!… IF THIS WOMAN HAD HAD A 20 GAUGE SHOTGUN, LOADED AND SHE WAS SITTING ON THE END OF HER BED, THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN THE LAST DOOR THAT BURGLAR KICKED IN!!!!

You can read the rest of the message here .
Andrew Sullivan tells a different story today.

As the SWAT team forced its way into his home, [Jose] Guerena, a former Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, armed himself with his AR-15 rifle and told his wife and son to hide in a closet. As the officers entered, Guerena confronted them from the far end of a long, dark hallway. The police opened fire, releasing more than 70 rounds in about 7 seconds, at least 60 of which struck Guerena. He was pronounced dead a little over an hour later.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department initially claimed Guerena fired his weapon at the SWAT team. They now acknowledge that not only did he not fire, the safety on his gun was still activated when he was killed. Guerena had no prior criminal record, and the police found nothing illegal in his home.
