44. So you leave the safety of your home, to confront a thief with a gun..
That you would only use to defend yourself.

Great way to escalate the situation. You wouldn't have to defend yourself if you didn't pull the Clint Eastwood move.

I have had my car burglarized (they took a tool kit) and my home (a laptop). In both cases I suspect it was an opportunistic teenager. I guess I should have tried to kill them, or sorry, confront them with the threat of violence.
