Though Texas allows deadly force to defend property, my religous ethics dont permit me to kill somebody under those particular circumstances.

Thus, I would either arm myself and confront the person to chase him off (if I had something in the car worth stealing), or maybe simply call the police depending on how I felt. Though I am not a pacifist, I am not looking for pretenses to kill a person either.

I'd drop a perp in a heartbeat if they are presenting physical injury or death upon myself or anyone else. But property crimes? No. That doesn't sit right with me. I can't justify that with my personal morals (and I'm an athiest...)

Having seen quite a few last breaths, I'm not willing to cause another over my iPod.
Very well said. Thank you for your continued Service. And no, I would never consider you a "bleeding heart" simply becasue you are unwilling to kill somebody over your I-pod.

There are those who would and those who won't.
That is their choice and it ain't any of my bidness which one they choose.
It's the criminal who made the bad choice in the first place, so tough "stuff" for him.

Let them take it hopefully crash it and get a new car . If they are desperate enough to steal a newer car still let them alone. If the car has 56 k miles place your keys over a slightly open window in hopes it will be stolen and found burnt out in Nebraska.

I agree. But generalizing people based on where they live needs to be called out. We may be out numbered in our own state, but based on total population, NY actually has more gun owners than many states have residents period.

A quick google gave me 3,447,000 based on 2007 numbers. So in other words, NY gun owners alone would be the 30th most populous state.

So, a man did what he's morally obligated to do - protect his family and home. He gets three years in prison? That is so f'd up I can't grasp it.

I don't know any guy who wouldn't pull out the stops to protect his wife and children and lastly, himself.

Thank you.

Even though I enjoy "privileges" that the regular NY gun owner doesn't, I stay on the front line fighting until we all realize the full extent of the 2nd Amendment. NY has a legion of solid Americans fighting the liberal horde daily. We won't give up.
