Too bad for one man that Arizona doesn't have a safe storage law.

It might have saved him from getting shot by a 14 year old boy:

A 14-year-old Phoenix boy shot an intruder who broke into his home while brandishing a gun as the teenager watched his three younger siblings, police said.
The teen and his brothers and sisters were at home alone at their residence at 55th Avenue and Baseline when a woman rang the doorbell Friday. The teen didn't open the door because he didn't recognize her, Police Officer James Holmes said Saturday.
Soon after, the teen heard a bang on the door, rushed his siblings upstairs and got a handgun from his parent's bedroom. When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw a man breaking through the front door and point a gun at him.

The Anti's would prefer that children face armed home invaders unarmed.  

Hopefully this kid is feeling no guilt, because he shouldn't.  And hopefully no moron tries to convince him that he should feel guilty for protecting his family because of some asinine ideal about the sanctity of life.  The cold, hard truth is that life is cheap.  Humans rape and murder other humans (to include children) every damned day.  There is nothing special about our lives in the grand scheme unless we do something to make them so.  This boy, nay, this man has done so  His actions were decisive, brave, and most of all absolutely correct.
