It's good to hear a story where someone protecting their property wasn't prosecuted and the criminals were.

Is this a real story? I would love to read the link.




Before clapping your hands for grandpa we need to see the whole story. Did he give them a chance to surrender?


I always think about like this if I witnessed some punk breaking into my car that is parked in my driveway would I take the shot? NO, I would call the police. Is personal property worth someone's life? Not to me.



But if my family was in trouble I would do what I had to do. But only if it was life threatening.



But we hear grandpa protecting the grand kids and we assume the rest.

If I could, I would buy the old man a complimentary laser scope, not that he needs it. It is really Nice to hear that he was not charged with anything, I am actually pretty surprised that he hasnt, considering our FUBAR judicial system has made a habit of persecuting the victim in these situations.

And just to add, as a reminder that age is not always a factor,

Both of my grandfathers were policemen,My fathers father is a very Spry 80 years old and as a guy who walked the beat from the mid 60's to the mid 80's, he really knows how to handle himself, hes six four 3 inches tall and about 220 lbs, I would bet on him taking out two young punks without the help of a firearm everytime....Heck I am in my mid thirties and everytime he shakes my hand I have to peel my fingers apart..

Beware punks looking for an easy victim in senior citizens sometimes you bite off more than you can chew.

Question is Subjective Truth: Is it worth your life to steal from someone? If we have a mentality that if someone steals from you and doesn't threaten you, he can get away with it, then we'll have a free for all. We need to stand up and make a statement that if you steal there's a damn good chance your gonna get killed...I understand where your coming from, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't kill someone for stealing a folding chair that's laying in the back of my pickup but if someone breaks into my house/garage, they are not going to see the light of day again and I will see to it!!
