I live in the country, I had a new water pump stolen that was hooked upto a water tank and supplied water to the house....you telling me I should have uncoupled it every time I went into town????? It was bolted to a concrete pad. I'd rather shoot the prick!!
on another occassion I had the front door smashed in and furniture stolen....it WASN"T laying around unsecured!!!!!!
on another occasion I had a 1000 gallon water tank stolen while I was away for the weekend....
I tracked it down, told the cops, they asked if I was a good shot, I asked why and he said you could fire shots into it from the road rendering it useless....said I'd rather save my ammo for the thieves.
dont make idiotic comments mate, if you dont know the situation.!!!!
you do have control over a shotgun.
Colpy says:I see no reason one should have to stand aside and allow himself to be robbed.
In most cases, standing aside will probably save your life. Much more valuable than anything you own. If you see someone stealing from you, you think that gives a person the right to attempt to kill by shooting at them? Someone would have to be attempting to kill me or someone else before I would consider shooting at all.
do you know what kind of sh!t you'd be in if your dog bites someone, wether they are intruding or not?
do you know that if a prick cut himself while climbing in the window he just broke to gain access to your place, he can sue you?
the pricks have more rights than the victims these days!!!!!
Not sure about where he lives but around here calling the cops does absolutely nothing. Our County has close to 80 townships and if we're lucky there are 2 cops on duty overnight. Theft is becoming a big problem in rural areas because the bad guys know there probably isn't a cop within 30 miles.
Just because something is in plain view does not mean stealing it is acceptable. I think that is part of the bigger problem when people accept thievery as a basic part of life
One thing I keep seeing here is a lack of understanding of the nature of theft in the country.
