Sounds like a good way to eliminate ANTIFA once and for all?

Just think, if he had used an AR10 he could have saved ammunition.

Good job by the shop owner. Reminds me of the Koreans during the Rodney King riots.

Q: So, are all burglaries now going to be called lootings?

I lot more store owners need to have someone that is able to use a firearm guard their property in the areas that are seeing the break-ins. That may slow the thieves down a little.

Nothing short of stopping them in their tracks is going to stop them. They are like sharks with blood in the water.

I hope they take names and addresses of those detained and run records to see if they are receiving unemployment checks or welfare checks and stop the checks to them. Anyone working a government job for city, county, state or federal jobs should be fired. Send in the federal troopers to collect as much data as possible on anyone destroying and or stealing property.

And if they are from out of state, throw every federal law on the books at them.

It's hard to imagine how dumb you would have to be to attempt to rob a gun shop.

Unfortunately gun shops get broken into and burglarized all the time.

I have ZERO SYMPATHY for someone who chooses to engage in this kind of lawlessness, forcefully trying to take what doesn't belong to them using a gun.

He made his choice, he suffered the consequences of his actions.

Even the lowliest scumbag is still somebody's brother or son. However I agree 100% that actions have consequences. The taking of any person's life is unfortunate, but if they don't want to get shot and killed then they shouldn't be committing violent felonies, and their surviving relatives shouldn't act like it's an injustice that the victim fought back and won. It's that simple.

Yes, I find it sad that some people take the wrong path. This trajectory often established in childhood.

So I take no joy in a crook getting shot.

Of course I understand that a victim needs to do what they must for themselves & their family. I would do the same.

But it's still sad to have someone die and for a defender to carry the weight of that.

DSK I was a law enforcement officer for 38 years in Wyoming. I was a deputy sheriff, and Highway Patrol Officer, and Chief of the State Park Rangers. I never, ever wanted to shoot someone, but my chosen profession was to protect and serve. If someone decided they want to break they law and engage in activity that could cause physical harm to another citizen, then I would respond to the activity to protect the citizen. I was prepared to do the protection, and perhaps my determination to do the right thing may have influenced one or two to back down and go away. I will never know. But I was there to do the right thing.

I agree, and thanks for your service to your community. It's just unfortunate that people who live in criminal subcultures have their own warped concept of justice. They never stop and think that their dead relative did something wrong and paid for it with their life. These people take care of their own, and that's why we have a gang culture in so many cities where it's a vicious cycle of one payback after another. And when a cop or armed citizen takes out one of their own they are sure to play the victim card at the very minimum. After all, how many times have we heard some mother wail "they didn't have to shoot my boy, he didn't mean no harm!" to the news media, despite the fact that her boy was robbing someone at gunpoint when he was shot and killed?
