San Francisco police are looking for five men who forced their way into a home in the Richmond District early this morning and robbed the sleeping residents at gunpoint.

According to SFPD, the armed men entered the home on the 500 block of 40th Avenue about 2:50 a.m. where between five and 10 people were asleep.

The robbers -- who were only described as black men in their 20s -- held the victims at gunpoint while pilfering electronic devices, cash, wallets, and luggage.

Nobody was hurt, but the residents were certainly shaken up, as KTVU reports.

"Five guys came in with guns and immediately began knocking down doors," a resident told KTVU. "They started hitting us and dragged us all out into the living room."

Whatever, banning guns is a dumb idea, then only the criminals will have them. 5 guys break into my house... Then there will be 5 less thieves running the street.

We need a strict gun policy. A ban on assault weapons, a background check for all gun sales, and severe repercussions for anyone transporting or caught with an illegal gun in their possession!

Between five and ten people in the home? Sounds shady. I doubt a group of black men just go around breaking into random occupies houses. There had to be something sketchy occurring in this house that would leave these guys to believe that there would be something worth stealing. Home invasion carries some SERIOUS prison time because it often includes a kidnapping charge. I doubt these guys are willing to do 20 years for a smartphone and some loose change...

@janeandjohndoe  They're from a demographic background that's often pretty stupid..Even

to the point of having to be taught/schooled on how to show up at work , on time , as a part

of publicly funded job/work programs.. Fifty [ 50 ] years of LBJ's Great Society has done ir-

reparable damage. You underestimate the 'dumb' involved as a part of your 'PC' overreach..
