After over 65 years of life I can still not understand Stupidity.  FOX has a story about citizen getting a call that someone was breaking into his parents home.   The parents were not there which he knew. This man appears to be in 50's.   His house is next to theirs and he gets his gun and goes there to fine three teenagers coming out of the house empty handed as they took nothing.   In the video he has them on the ground and of course threatening to shoot them.  He also says in the video that they are lucky he did not shoot them.

Really?   What if anything, in that house is worth a life, either the life of the potential thieves or his.   What if they were real gang bangers and had an armed look out and while he is standing over them pointing his run his mouth playing bad ass and threatening them the lookout shoots him?  He is dead and for what?  

His action are to me beyond stupid.  I know some here will not agree with me on this and I am not even going to debate it with anyone.  I don't have to because I know I am right.

Now if his parents were home then damn right I am not waiting for the police.  When seconds count the police are minutes away.   I am going to their aid and should anyone be a threat to me or them then I will use my weapon without hesitation.  Use of deadly force is authorized to protect property in most all states but I am not going to use it.   I have something better then any of the 40+ guns I own to protect my property and that is Home Owners Insurance.  The one exception is if they are about to steal guns.  I will then use deadly force in defense of a third person as stolen guns are used in other crimes and against LEO's.  

I am putting this out there for readers to consider and not to start a debate.  Anyone can reply and I will not counter.   Both sides are fine to be posted here and let readers decide the best course of action for them.

Preach it JD. Why is it that I always see the certified bad asses, Marine Corps vets, other military, police, firearms instructors, and the like, inviting folks to consider exactly when (and when not) deadly force is advised? "In The Gravest Extreme" is the title of Mas Ayoob's book. That's when. 

Your next door parent's house is being broken into? Don't play cop. Do you get paid for that? No! Call those that do get paid to do the dangerous game of a house search. I know I ain't doing it. I'll call and observe from a safe distance, perhaps filming the suspects. Confronting them? Nope. Not even if they're leaving with the new 60" TV.

It's thinking that likely comes from being a professional pilot. You learn to avoid bad situations by using your superior judgement so you don't have to use your superior skill...😜👍

Good judgement _is_ a skill, a very valuable and important one. Unfortunately, it seems to be rather uncommon for people to have it.

Watching a Cop show last night. Three LEOS had the bad guy on the ground
and  this guy comes running out of his house, gun in hand, runs up behind
the LEOS and pushed his gun between two of them.
No audio, but easy to tell when the LEOS turned it was not good.
Had the LEOS not been standing side by side with the smuck between them,
I think they would have shot him.
Do we still live in the real world?????

OMG.  Yet, some gun owners object to even having training requirements for Carry.   I would like to see them for ownership.   A basic safety course, type of firearms and state laws would not be out of line before owning a gun.   Guess you have to add when the Police are in your yard don't go outside period unless they request you to and don't go out with a gun.

Ask a gun owner with no training this question and the answers will scare you.
   A bad guy throws a knife at you. It clips your ear and it sticks in the wall
   behind you. Can you shoot him?
I was an instructor for a security company in South Carolina for 14 years.
I was trained at the South Carolina State Police Center and this was about                                 the first question we were asked.
