Right.

Break into my Texas home and it’s a pretty safe bet that I will NOT be offering re-fried beans, burritos and offering to educate your children at my expense.

Better that you know that my first call will be to the Coroner to haul your carcass out. I don’t do warning shots.

I think this is Sheila Jackson Lee’s district. Whether it is or not, I won’t be in that area daylight or dark.

That would be frightening. How did he manage to stop shooting after firing only one shot? I’d probably be terrified and empty the magazine.
