In my town, a man went out of his house armed with a hand gun to find a thief trying to break into his car. He was holding the thief at gun point until police arrived. According to the newspaper, a scuffle ensued, the thief took the gun away from the man, and shot the man in the hand, leg, and abdomen. No kidding! The neighborhood is probably a mile away from my house. My wife was working at the computer, I was in bed, and she came and told me she heard three gunshots. She said the first two were close together, and the third was a couple of seconds later. Why would he let an unarmed man approach him in such a way so as to lose control of his firearm? Seems to me, don't bring it out if you aren't going to use it. I believe he would be justified in shooting the thief if the thief was advancing on him. We have castle law and stand your ground law here in Alabama. The thief was caught and is facing attempted murder charges. The man is in the local hospital and will recover. This is why I carry and why I won't draw unless I am prepared to use. I would have fired at the thief once he charged at me such as in this case. He wouldnt have had a chance to get close enough to take my gun.
