Police Say a Man Was Robbed of His Guns at Gunpoint at His Midway Hollow Home

Timothy Woodard and Elizabeth Weaver, 48 and 53, respectively, were at their home in the 3800 block of Davila Drive at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday when they answered a knock at the door. On the porch were two strangers, whom they invited inside.

It's not clear from police reports or a neighborhood crime alert from officers who patrol the area why Woodard and Weaver so readily opened their home, just it would have been wiser not to. There was a brief argument, then the strangers each pulled out a handgun. One of them fired at Woodard, hitting him in the finger.

The gunmen then robbed Woodard of his guns, taking two rifles (a Ruger 1022 and a Buckstalker .50-caliber with scope) and a Pardner 12-gauge pump shotgun before running out the door. The report does not specify if the latter firearm was Pardner's home-defense or hunting model, though the distinction is an academic one.

In the crime alert dispatched to neighbors yesterday, officers write that they know who the suspects are "and we are working on the case as we speak."

This is why you don't open your door for strangers.

Only a fool has his gun taken away from him.

HOW STUPID WAS THAT ?

Well it was stupid enough that someone got inside his first line of defense then got the drop on him and took away his toys .

Guns are tools. Each tool has appropriate parameters of use. Someone utilizing a handgun to robb someone of rifles makes perfect sense, as each is good for different ranges of defense. Nobody should feel immune to malfeasance because they posses a "gun".

The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is, um, another guy with guns giving his guns to the bad guy with guns so he doesn't get himself shot.

Like GuitarPlayer, this story doesnt pass the smell test. Maybe they were expecting a different sort of gun.

There's nothing at all wrong with having a 12 gauge.  Hell, Biden personally endorsed that very weapon.

But only if you have the shotgun where you can get to it for defense. Something doesn't pass the smell test with this story. Why do you let two strangers into your home? Especially if you are concerned enough to keep a shotgun for home defense.
