We can get into a big debate on 2nd amendment rights, but these are unlocked cars and empty homes being robbed. The victims were in no physical danger. Are you advocating that you should be able to leave the safety of your home to put a bullet in the head of someone taking 15 dollars in change from the car on your property? Why stop there? Next you can jump in your car and chase them to wawa and shoot them at the gas pump? I'd rather you leave your gun in your house and let the cops do their job. I think they should set up a bait car and then post high bails and give maximum sentences.

yep our fault that one night we forgot to lock our car..so it was stolen..guess thats our fault and then we had to add security to our home..alarm and cameras and now a monthly fee..all our fault because we didnt lock our car one summer evening..not to mention scary to be home alone especially at night ..

Hi @ devo you know in the south that shooting thing is probably what could determine a robbery or not...am not saying its right just a way of life there

Devo, Clearly you missed my point. I am not saying that it is our fault all the crime exists, I am saying that there likely would be less of it if the thieves thought that everyone might be armed, dangerous and stupid enough to pull the trigger over $15.00 and some other odds and ends. You are correct that we could debate the second amendment rights issue extensively and I am sure there are many that would assemble in support of both our views and present many more of their own. It is a simple fact that most but not all people will think twice before committing a crime if they think their is a real chance they will get their head blown off. You don't even need to own a firearm and the risk is still real to the thief, but with our Government working to disarm the nation and the response time for the police being over and hour sometimes more what do they have to worry about? Someone yelling "I am calling the police" or "I am going to count to three then unload my firearm in your direction"
