@forsquirrel
so you're saying that whatever he was stealing is worth more than that person's life?

The way USA allows everyone to use guns is moronic. If you want guns for protection then a handgun with rubber bullets is more than enough.

@ForSquirel in my gunless country it's rare for burglars to have guns, also it's rare for bulglars to break into house in presence of occupants. They would usually rob you when you're with your family on vacations. Choosing lesser evil I preffer it this way.

Guns don't kill, people do. And people make stupid decisions everyday, so stop giving them guns.

It's harder to get a driver's license than a gun's one in most of the US, explain to me the great logic behind that.

" a sane person will eventually come to the conclusion that no one really had to die. It was just the little fantasy in the back of your head that made it seem like that was the thing to do at the time."

so what you're saying is if someone breaks in my house with a gun, a knife, a crowbar, a (pick your implement) with every intent of doing harm to me or my family that I should just lie down and let it happen?
"Guns aren't really needed for self defense."
What do you propose one should use then? 911 and wait for law enforcement?
Tried that, took the cops to long to get to my house. A Bat? Doesn't do well if the attacker is using a ranged weapon. I got it, wishful thinking and positive happy thoughts. "I will not get mugged, I will not get mugged"

Those people who say "Those gun owners are just itching for a chance to kill someone" are the people who really want to kill someone. They're projecting their insecurities and dark desires upon those with the capacity to carry it out.

No, I wasn't being sarcastic or trolling. I tried trolling last month about being against gay rights and that wasn't as fun as I thought it would be. I am a liberal and in line with most liberal thinking.

Guns aren't really needed for self defense. I know a lot of gun owners and I know from talking to them about this subject that they secretly want to be in a situation where they can defend their safety or property and shoot someone legally. And I can also tell you from experience that shooting someone is more of a traumatic experience than you might think. These people I know tell me that they would not feel bad at all shooting an intruder who was in their house illegally. Well, when things are all said and done and the situation is over, a sane person will eventually come to the conclusion that no one really had to die. It was just the little fantasy in the back of your head that made it seem like that was the thing to do at the time.

@cartunze - "A gun owner's wet dream - a chance to murder someone."

really? I hope you're being sarcastic. If you're not, then you're just being an ignorant asshat.
I hate to break it to you, but the vast vast majority of gun owners don't want to fire their gun in defense, and most never would. There are those few that will to protect and then there's this guy who probably wanted to shoot at someone. If that's the case then he probably has more issues than we know about.

This old man was stupid.. If I understand the case correctly he at no point was in his rights to shoot. They never entered the house, his life wasn't in imminent danger and they were fleeing.

Just a really bad example of a gun owner that made a stupid avoidable mistake.

A gun owner's wet dream - a chance to murder someone. Oh, they never came into the house and tried to rob you? They are still on the property! Close enough!

This man is a murderer. It is not self-defense to shoot in defense of property (ie, if you are being robbed.) It is only self-defense if you shoot in defense of your person (ie, you are being physically threatened.) PS - obviously this guy is a complete racist because the kids spoke Spanish he thought they were criminals.

Fact: If you break into my house, you are not armed, and I shoot you, then I am a murderer.

Seriously, who can complain with that logic?

Because your logic is reactionary and ignores the cases where guns are used to legitimately protect people. As has been done many times here before, for every story like this, at least 2 can be posted where someone uses a gun to legitimately protect their lives and the lives of their families.

Don't get me wrong, this man needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I have even seen one news report that states he fired in the air before shooting the victim as he was driving away. There is just no excuse for his actions if this is true.

The point of gun restrictions isn't to keep determined people from owning guns. Nothing will ever be able to stop those people.


That is the whole point of gun restrictions.

Old man shot too soon even if he believed he was getting attacked, not a responsible gun owner in my book and as the saying goes... if you don't wield power responsibly, it will destroy you.

Good thing that the dismantling of Americans "right" to bear arms has already begun. I hope they keep it up until it is illegal to own any kind of gun like in the civilized world.

sad situation, but if the guy was actually shot while driving away then they will probably have a case. also, how has no one pointed out gerry saying "cubans and ice skating... sounds fishy to me." ?????? what does them being cuban have to do with some kids wanting to go ice skating?

Yet another example of why more guns is dumb. No gun laws won't stop this type of thing, but having more guns opens this type of tragedy. The point of gun restrictions isn't to keep determined people from owning guns. Nothing will ever be able to stop those people. It is to keep irresponsible, stupid people from having easy access to guns. Seriously, who can complain with that logic?

If they were trying to leave, doesn't matter their intentions, they were no longer a threat. Not saying they ever were one, but the old guy thought so. Sucks all around.
