    After this article, I bet he will be doing a lot more crying for his inmates. Nothing like going to prison with a good rep.

    The gun trumps any age consideration. He's very lucky to be alive - next time, I hope he leaves in a bag.

    Wow, cannot believe everyone wished the homeowner had shot the intruder. I know we get riled up at times and what probably saved that kid's life was that the homeowner was a military vet and had seen real combat. He sized up the situation up pretty quickly and doubt he would have wasted any time in shooting in true self defense if the kid had made any moves contrary to putting the gun down and begging the homeowner to call the police. Personally, I hope the intervention made a helluvan impression on the kid and he does get his life straightened out.

    "To own firearms is to affirm that freedom is not a gift from government...As the Founding Fathers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of trust."

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    I don't buy the military thing if anything it worked against him . Think about it, rules of engagement! you must be fired on to fire back. Thats how he and the rest of our military have been trained. And unlike like a normal citizen where you just have to have fear of life or great bodily harm. If someone with a gun is actively fighting a family member then he's crossed the line. I'm not wishing for the chance to shoot someone but I have seen what happens when a criminal has the upper hand they do not respond to commands. They normally shoot first. They already know they are in trouble and if they think they can get away they will do whatever it takes to do so. Betting that they will drop their gun is a good way to get your family killed along with yourself. JMO If you hesitate you will lose!!!

    Thank you sir. I find it awful to hear people wishing this kid had died. Yes, he made some incredibly bad choices. But I say hoping he got the message and straightens himself out is more constructive than wishing this boy had been killed.
