    Gun stickers on the truck.
    Needs shooting practice. Don't shoot if you don't have a shot. Putting others at risk.
    Don't keep valuables in your vehicle to start with.
    You have video camera, why not lights and alarm? Known problem area, previous activity.
    Don't shoot at a non threat, even if you are allowed to by law.
    Sounds like he had an unsecured gun in the garage as well.

    Moving is not as easy as it sounds. Moving is expensive and time consuming.

    If you mean the bad guy in this thread's main story, I probably would not have shot at him at all. If you mean the guy who was making somewhat threatening and idiotic comments to me while I walked my dog - I did not shoot at him nor draw my weapon but had he pulled out a gun - you figure it with him on one side of the chain link fence and me on the other.

    Directed at your comment.
    You wondered what it would be like shooting through a fence, because of the comments being made by someone on the other side.
    I merely asked why you would shoot through a fence at someone, in your situation of course.
    I never said that you did.

    After hurricane katrina my neighborhood was surrounded by N.O. refugees living in apartment complexes located nearby our house.

    Crime rate rocketed. Burglaries mostly.

    We moved.

    Is moving easy?

    No, especially not when you spent 24 years living in and improving your home.

    But, we weren't about to live in a crime zone (if you will) because moving is difficult in a number of categories.

    It was as it turned out the best move we ever made.

    We live in a neighborhood (out in the country) with virtually no crime and no anxiety about be burglarized or worse...

    Staying and living in a crime zone is a choice.........

    You obviously had the financial wherewithal to move. I know of some folks who don't.

    It's always easier to find excuses than to act.......

    And it is easy to judge those less fortunate than oneself.

    I am surprised the good guy was not charged for use of deadly force. A truck is replaceable. On the other hand I wish his aim was better.
