I understand that we don’t want to see bad guys and gals get away with crimes, and we don’t want to see our property stolen. I also understand that I don’t want to risk being shot by them over a laptop.
A homeowner noticed some suspicious people on his surveillance cameras and decided to grab a rifle and go outside once he saw one of them sneak up to his vehicle that was parked in the driveway. Once the armed homeowner peeks around the corner of the vehicle, a gunfight between himself and the suspect begins.
He then retreats into the home and comes back out with a “bigger gun”.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll take the loss and call the police. Unless that person is trying to get inside my home, I’m not going out there to risk having my life ended at the hands of a thug who is looking to score some items from my vehicle.
Choose your battles, folks.
