Tactical gas pumping. Nice. 
 

 
I look both ways before crossing a one-way street
 
That's how little faith I have left in humanity.

Lol I do the same.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't too.

Good news, maybe?

 

He shot the robber to "stop the offender from running him over with the car" sounds like a California orange - color added. I hope he sticks to that story, because shooting someone running off with your property is not self-defense, rather something that includes meals and limited mobility. Leaving your car running, unattended, is close to suborning a felony.

 

Um, no.  Not close to suborning anything.  Not even the same zip code, friend.

Use of deadly force to prevent a property crime is not a good idea, unless you want to spend several years in the pen.  Whether you agree with the concept or not, that's how the courts are ruling.  Andrew Branca's book "The Law of Self-Defense" is a good read.  The ISRA published an article a few years back, written by a former DuPage Co. SA (I think), talking about the same thing.  He referenced Tennessee vs. Garner.  Three questions to answer....1.  Is my life in immediate danger?  2.  Is someone else's life in immediate danger?  3.  Do I have any other options available?

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people!"

"I am not well versed in history, but I will submit to your recollection, whether liberty has been destroyed most often by the licentiousness of the people, or by the tyranny of rulers. I imagine, sir, you will find the balance on the side of tyranny."- Patrick Henry
