A: Complaining because someone defending life and home didn't fight 'fair'

is pretty damned stupid.

B: So, would he consider it 'fair' if said homeowner had fought bare-handed against three home invaders, at least one of whom had brass knuckles(other weapons not mentioned)?

Guy, I understand you grieve for your grandson, but this is bullshit.

Maybe if grandfather had imparted some wisdom, such as "your life ain't worth some stuff", a kid or two would still be alive.

Who failed, in this particular incident. Hmmm?

The grandfather need to be shot also.....

I don't know the exact circumstances, or the sequence of events, but the homeowner going 3 for 3 indicates that either he knew his stuff or the AR was the right tool for a 3-to-1 contest, probably both.

So far, it appears to be a rightious shoot, so "officialdom" seems to have acknowledged the threat level was correctly perceived.

As for gramps, I'd hope the homeowner would seek to engage the services of a skilled practitioner of the legal arts with the purpose of financially educating the several parents and grandparents of the deceased (as well as the one survivor) about the liabilities of inadequate and incomplete parenting.

And if the little peckerhead had decided that breaking into a home to steal stuff that wasn't his wasn't fair, he'd still be here today.

Stupid choices - win stupid prizes.

Was grandpa going to get a cut of the spoils. The idiot kids rolled the dice and lost. maybe he should have brought the kid up better. where are mommy and daddy (which is the problem)Mommy and daddy appear to be absent. A little guidance from mommy and daddy might have precluded this situation.

I remember the discussion about this, over on Weaponsman's site. I will repeat what I said there:

"Freedom means people need to make bad decisions, including smoking reefer, eating at Taco Bell, and buying Nickelback albums. But choices have consequences. Some might be fairly minor to practically nonexistent. Others can be life changing or life ending.

I am reminded of an image I saw, showing a kestrel attempting to steal dinner from a Harris hawk. The kestrel, in this case, was a quarter the size of the hawk. The caption reads ‘The risk I took was calculated, but man, am I bad at math.’

These three were VERY bad at math."
