40. I will tell them the police are on the way
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 10:05 PM by Travis_0004
First off, the odds off a stay bullet going into another house and killing a kid are exponentially low, especially where I live. I don't think criminals deserve death either, I didn't say I'm going to shoot them, I said I'm willing to defend myself.

Fine, maybe me and you have a difference of opinion. I don't really care. Hopefully criminals will rob your car. If its cold outside you can make them a cup of tea and chat while the cops arrive.

I have an uncle who some people broke into his car a few months ago. He grabbed his shotgun, and confronted them. They didn't resit, and stayed there until the police arrive. Because of my uncles actions:

1. He still had a job. He had 5 grand worth of tools in his truck at the time, and his tools are his lively hood.
2. The criminals went to jail.
3. 10-20 other people got their stuff back. They managed to track down almost all the merchandise that was stolen from other poeple in the last week and return it.

I see nothing wrong with this situation. If he did nothing, he would have been out tons of money replacing tools, and more hard working people would have been robbed.
