See if I have this straight now. When really dumb guys,
sound like really dumb guys, to really dumb guys?
It's because there are some really dumb guys?
That's a possible outcome. Despite appearances due to the partisan bickering in the US there aren't simply two solutions to every problem with one being smart and the other being stupid. A group of dumb people can have a dumb idea that still sounds dumb to everyone else.

I am really just tired of all the bleeding hearts on the other side of the story complaining about how robbers don't deserve death.
Theft = death? Property is worth more than a life? Only in America.

At what point during a home invasion/ robbery is it okay to defend yourself and your home?
When you or your family is in danger. Many of these kids that have gotten killed lately were unarmed the people that did the shooting could have just as easily held them at gun point until the police arrived there was no need to shoot them. Even in states that recognize Castle doctrine you have to prove that you feared imminent peril of death or serious bodily harm to him or herself or another.

Judging them by what they would be like in 6 years and using that to justify their deaths now is like the police hauling you away because they think you're going to beat a child you don't even have yet 6 years in the future.
Were they on a good path? Not at all, but you can't judge someone on future actions they haven't yet taken.
