“…I meant to blog about this last night, but being as sleep deprived as I’ve been the past several months, I fell asleep as soon as I hit my bed (for those of you who don’t know, that’s where I do all my blogging – in bed, on my laptop). However, I absolutely need to highlight this piece, for it highlights not only the usefulness of the firearm as a tool of self defense, but also the folly of disarming college students, as well as rendering citizens defenseless in the home.
Bailey said he thought it was the end of his life and the lives of the 10 people inside his apartment for a birthday party after two masked men with guns burst in through a patio door.
“They just came in and separated the men from the women and said, ‘Give me your wallets and cell phones,’” said George Williams of the College Park Police Department.
Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets. “The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough,” said Bailey.

The student then ran to the room where the second gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, was holding the women.
“Apparently the guy was getting ready to rape his girlfriend. So he told the girls to get down and he started shooting. The guy jumped out of the window,” said Bailey.
