    Home defense with firearms.

    As usual crimes committed with firearms are always reported but this is one for the good guys and two for the bad guy:

    "SALT LAKE CITY -- A man who stumbled into a Sugar House gas station with gunshot wounds is now in jail. Deputies think he got shot during an apartment burglary.

    Investigators initially believed 26-year-old Ronald Whitelaw was the victim of a drive-by shooting. After receiving new information Thursday, they now think he was shot while he and another man tried to burglarize an apartment in Holladay. "

    On my Jesus rifle Trijicon scope, John 12:46 "I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness."
    *update* the latest ACOG's we received have the damn biblical passage removed.
    I say Trijicon kicks ass and should continue the practice of placing biblical passages on all scopes!!!

    The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for re-election and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake free people get to make only once." Judge Alex Kozinski, 9th District

    Re: Home defense with firearms.

    Yup. At least two of them.

    There is, or was, a site that collected these kinds of incidents from all over the country. I don't mean the clayton cramer site; there was another that literally kept them day-by-day, state-by state. Anyone know the address?

    Re: Home defense with firearms.

    I am up in Boise this week and saw this story on the news last night. Reminded me how many liberal freaks share the Treasure valley with the normal people:

    http://www.ktvb.com/news/localnews/stories/ktvbn-jul1709-citizen_arrest.4e0b1fd0.html


    They interviewed the cop and he said something like ... 'yeah we are grateful for these citizens help, but a cop would never draw a gun to stop a petty theft.'

    1) well maybe they should 2) these weren't cops in uniforms (like a criminal is going to listen to me yelling "stop man" in my Billabong T-Shirt


    Riding, Shooting, or Golfing...you pick and I will be there.

    Everyone has the right to due process, even the bad guys.
    When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose.

    "A Cop would never draw a gun to stop a petty theft.."

    Bullshit.

    I think they'll face the typical charges for discharging a firearm won't they? Probably be thrown out but in my CC class the instructor said if you fire your weapon you'll be sued, you have to go to court and all that but if it's self defense you should be good.

    The law does not allow you to threaten deadly force to stop a petty crime.
