UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CBS 2) — He was arrested for protecting his property and family.

But it’s how the Long Island man did it that police say crossed the line.

Not guilty!

p.s., I cced <an upcoming juror> who going to jury duty. Wanna get her conditioned to: “No harm, no foul, not guilty”! Just because the Praetorian Guard thinks they are the only ones who should have weapons, that doesn’t mean the citizens can’t have and use them. So who’s going to protect this man’s home if not him. Did they shake down all the folks threatening him? Bet they were carrying concealed! Sorry, but gang members do NOT need a weapon to scare and threaten me.

Gun control should be limited to hitting what you aim at.

The use of force in response to what law enforcement perceives to be a lack of force on the part of the trespassers in this case is a gross misinterpretation of the events.

A criminal does not have to have a weapon to forcefully enter a home and assault its residents, especially if the criminals number twenty individuals suspected of being part of a violent gang who are instigating the threats on private property.

In our view, the fact that these individuals were on Mr. Grier’s property, making physical threats against him, his wife and his children is reason enough for Mr. Grier to not only fire warning shots, but to take all available means to eliminate the threat.

This is exactly the reason why high-powered, semi-automatic weapons should be a part of every home defense plan.
