>>> “I said, ‘I got a weapon. It’s loaded. I’m prepared to shoot, come out,’”

No no no, this is all wrong.

According to retired Justice Stevens, you should arm yourself with the Constitutionally protected Cell Phone!

When police arrived at the home, officers say they found the homeowner holding Jones at gunpoint. The complaint indicates that Jones told officers: “I just came in looking for something to eat. I am really hungry.”

During the investigation, the homeowner noticed two TV sets were missing. One was located in the backyard of the home and the other in the basement where Jones was held.

Poor kid, he was so hungry he was about to eat two TV sets.

“A Kenosha County homeowner took matters into his own hands...”

Once again, the media tries to paint gun owners, in their own homes, as some sort of vigilantes.

To those who expect the government to do everything for them, a man who solves his own problems is something of a novelty.

Nice to see a dad of a thug who has wisdom like this and the ability to express it. That young man is very fortunate to be alive and the dad is fortunate, too.

The homeowner is fortunate he was not forced to kill someone and live with the aftermath of that or get shot himself. He’s was right. If he went down the steps to pursue the theif, something bad was going to happen and it might have happened to him.
