The 2nd Amendment for Real.

Man Cleared for Killing Neighbor's Burglars

A Texas man who shot and killed two men he believed to be burglarizing his neighbor's home won't be going to trial. A grand jury today failed to indict Joe Horn, a 61-year-old computer technician who lives in an affluent subdivision in Pasadena, Texas.

"Move and your dead!" is clearly heard on his 911 call right before the two buglars... uh... moved. Why has home invasion, buglary and robbery become so widespread? Perhaps because there hasn't been an abundance of folks willing to do what Mr. Horn did.

Though, it's not likely that criminals read this blog, read the news paper, or even take the time to watch the news on TV, this may trickle down far enough to inspire folks to regain their intestinal fortitude and begin defending their lives and property. The way I see it, if a man is willing to risk his life to threaten my family and property, I'm willing to take his life defending my family and property. Remember, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.
