You know, I would never shoot someone for taking my stapler at work. I think people miss the point.

My home is sacrosanct. I deserve to feel secure there and I have a right to defend it. Thank God for Texas Castle laws. It's not about stopping someone from stealing my TV, it's about making a point that invading my domain could be your costliest mistake.

"Street Justice" my ass. These people don't get it.

These are the people who are alarmed. They don't respect your property rights, your home is not important to them, and they feel perfectly fine about making that decision for you. As a former Liberal Democrat I'm glad I left the party before it became such a group of nosy busybodies. I miss the days when it truly was the party of the little guy, but I haven't seen any evidence of that platform since the 80's.

Yep... Libs love to argue that no possession is worth killing for and it resulted in decades of corporate policies that fired employees for defending themselves instead of giving in to criminal demands.

We had a coffee stand employee take down and armed robber last summer in Southern Oregon and the Media's first question was if he violated company policy by being armed.

The answer was heck NO!

Anyone rolling past a Dutch Brothers Coffee should remember this and buy one.

In Grants Pass, the Dutch Bros. coffee shop downtown has a "No Weapons" sign in the window.

Why do they always refer to these felons as Teenagers? The press makes it sound like they are only armed pranksters. Anyone who would shoot a Teenager would go to the garden and pull up baby corn.

That's called 'thinning the stand'. Makes the survivors stronger.

Who's "Some people" ? It doesn't say. And do they really mean 'alarming' or do they mean 'noticed'.
My guess is that the "some people" are the thugs, perverts, career crimainals that walk the streets of Detroit.

Pulling up baby corn makes the stand stronger? You should get a job in Iowa. How long would it take you to make a 1,000 acres stronger.

From a gardener's perspective. Thin each "hill" to the strongest 2 or 3 individual plants so there's less competition for the available nutrients, and the remaining plants grow bigger and stronger. Iowa corn farmers are on their own.
