“HE DID RIGHT”: Texas Teen Uses Shotgun In His Grandmother’s House To Kill One Burglar
http://www.mrconservative.com/ ^ | august, 30, 2013

Posted on 08/31/2013 9:02:11 AM PDT by lowbridge

Neighbors and law enforcement officers are praising a Texas teenager for shooting two burglars he caught in his grandmother’s house. One of the suspects died; the other is in serious condition.

The burglars, identified as Charles Allen Dixon and Michael McDaniel, showed up in the grandmother’s Baytown house at 5:30 on Wednesday morning. The grandmother’s house had been the target of burglars before, because it was vacant since she’d been put in a nursing home. The teen had moved into the house, apparently in part to protect his grandmother’s possessions from invaders.

The teen confronted Dixon and McDaniel with a shotgun and ordered them to put their hands up. When they ignored his order, he shot them. Dixon died on the scene. McDaniel was wounded, but able to escape. He later went to a local hospital for treatment, and was in serious condition. Burglary charges against him are pending. The woman who drove him to the hospital has been questioned as a possible accomplice.

In Michigan if they were not holding a gun or knife and threatening his life he would be the one going to jail.

He would not go to jail if he was my neighbor. I would just go out to the garden and hand him a machete. Case closed.

I never use 00 Buckshot in my Full Choke barrels.

But it sure does make quite a nice pattern of 9 large holes in my Modified Choke barrels.

I could see it pretty much cutting a guy in half at close enough range

The two gentlemen should have heeded the boy’s command.

They probably came from lifetimes of second chances, bluffing through the system, and getting their way.

Don’t mean a thing when the shotwad clears the muzzle.

Please refrain from referring to these or any other dirtbags as “gentlemen”. They are undeserving of the respect it conveys.

Thank you.

Maybe in some areas. He'd be no-billed in Texas and all the prosecutors know it.

That’s right. #8 birdshot is way plenty that close up.

Texan children are frequently taught to shoot between the ages of three and six. And this is the result of early firearms training.

It was meant to be sarcastic.

Would you prefer “the recently deceased and the perforated survivor”?

On a similar note:

An article appeared on F.R. yesterday, authored by a liberal, wherein, he referred to black people as, Black people, throughout the article. This error was echoed in some of the comments.
