    Ran across this on Blaze when I was reading the article posted here about the Florida family who got all armed up to defend against an attacker.

    Good Samaritan Shot While Helping Save a Family ?on Their Knees Execution-Style? From Four Attackers | Video | TheBlaze.com

    What this guy did seems quite heroic, but also a bit stupid. If they were going to kill the family, they would have killed him.
    That being said, the world probably needs more people who will do stupid shit to stop bad shit.

    Also, I know it's a little crazy to judge somebody in this kind of situation, but I just can't imagine the father leaving the house with his family in there and then letting some other dude go in to save his family while he waits outside. If my entire family is going to die in there, I sure the hell wouldn't want to live through it knowing I ran away.

    I would COMPLETELY be willing to do that if the circumstance was brought to me. That just makes me think though....at night, I sleep with my gun locker wide open to be ready for if I hear a bump in the night. What the hell would I do if I woke up to a man pointing a gun at me? Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to keep a gun hidden somewhere else so if I got away like the guy did, I could double back with a gun and try to save my family. Maybe get one of those gun safes for vehicles, and keep a key taped somewhere on the vehicle?

    The question is: "What is being stupid?"

    IMHO, being stupid is not being a man and stepping up to the plate. Good for him. He's a true man, not a coward.

    Wow, why its good to have a rifle in the car. Don't know if I could clear a strangers home.
    Yeah, there's no way in hell I'm going to attempt to clear a structure I know nothing about. The thought of having to clear my own house gives me the heebie jeebies. I'd set it on fire first.
