    Absolutely hard to say.

    Is it Noon? 6:00 PM in the evening? The middle of the night? Am I home alone? With my wife? With children? Has there been illegal activity going on that night or recently in the neighborhood? What's my mentality going into it...IE am I of completely sound and clear mind, with plenty of sleep and feeling good or am I perhaps not at my quickest reactionary point because I've been kept up for the past 5 hours by loud thumping music? Am I aware of the individual long before I see him? Do I hear sounds? Do those sounds sound suspicious, possibly raising alarms in me? Do I hear noises and go to investigate, only to get shocked as someone comes out from somewhere I'm not expecting someone to come out from? Or do I see the guy just kind of hanging around as I look through the door? Is the person acting threatening, aggressive, or in a way that could even be percieved as such? And on and on.

    Talking about the "idiot" has nothing to do with my point even though it's a common deflection.

    What's discpicable to me is that you have an utter disregard for the basis of human nature that everyone, when it comes down to push and shove and you get them talking honestly, values their loved ones lives more than the lives of an equal amount of others.

    Gun up to a strangers head and one up to your wife or mother's head....you have to choose one to live...you tell me honestly which you'd choose.

    Situation like that you're stuck with a scenario where you either err on the side of caution for the life of the person invading your property or err on the side of caution for the life of you and your loved ones. I find it despicable that you seek to insult and degrade those that would put their loved ones lives ahead of those who are acting in the wrong.

    I'm sorry that people on this board or the castle doctrine have changed your mind about gun laws, but to be honest I don't really care. It's people like you who actually strengthen my normally rather ambivelent attitude towards the need to elect and support significantly strong 2nd amendment individuals because you remind me of the type of unrealistic, ridiculously cowardly, rainbow and lollipops believing, foolish views there are out there that people hold on the issue and why it actually is important. You keep deluding yourself that you have some higher regard for human life, becuase that's all you're doing.

    Talking about it until we are blue, or red, in the face isn't going to bring Bo back.

    I'm selling my hoodies on ebay.

    No, baby...I'm not 'implying' anything. I'm stating directly you don give a **** about them or these two individuals. You 'care' about a cause. Nothin more.

    What are you even talking about? This is thread is like the center of not addressing what people actually said and making up nonsense.

    Can you please show me specifically in the post you quoted where I show an "utter disregard for the basis of human nature" that has anything to do with "valuing loved ones more than the lives of an equal amount to others?"

    Gun up to a strangers head and one up to your wife or mother's head....you have to choose one to live...you tell me honestly which you'd choose.
    I guess you missed both of my posts where I said I would SHOOT the stranger if they tried to enter my house or threaten me.

    Apparently, no one who responds to my posts can read. How about you try again? I've argued for responsible gun ownership, shooting as a last resort and valuing human life even if it's on my property. I've also argued that referring to lost life with callousness and amusement is despicable. I also pointed out that I would shoot someone who tried to enter my house or threatened me while on my property. Somehow out of that, you and others have gotten the bizarre idea I think people shouldn't value their families members over strangers or that I have insulted people because they "would put their loved ones lives ahead of 'those who are acting in the wrong'". Your reading comprehension is a complete failure. Try again because you obviously have no idea what you read.

    If you people are standard for gun owners in this country, God ****ing help us. At least I can read. P.S. I do have a higher regard for human life because I would shoot as a LAST RESORT and I would also not refer to the dead as "dumbasses" and take pleasure in comments about the "Darwin awards" and say things like "screw him" that devalue the importance of their life. ****ing sick.

    The really sad part is that Bo was hiding from the police because he was drinking and underage. An earlier post proclaimed that Bo was 20, so he wasn't a kid.

    He can't be both. Lower the drinking age. It should be 18.

    It has everything to do with the subject. Your observation is that there is disregard for a human life. My point is that the offending party should regard his own life, and by doing otherwise, is being stupid.

    It has to do with the subject, yes. It does not, however, have anything to do with my point. I was talking about a poster's disregard for life which is not affected by anything that anyone else did. You can talk about "the idiot" all day long, but how does that support or counter my comment?
