i totally agree, the Castle Law should allow us to shoot anyone stealing, when the thief stolen something from my garage, i should have the right to kill that thief, when that drug-addict pig, stolen my tree clippers that cost me 50 dollars, i didn't catch him, but i would just cut out his eyes, so that this drug-addict pig will be able to experience all the pain that is brought upon blind people.

I certainly hope YOU don't have a gun. You need to have sound mind to make life and death decisions. I think your's is a little off! Ever see anyone with low blood sugar? They sometimes do things they don't know. Hardly worth taking a life over!

It happens probably nightly. A citizen fights off a criminal in order to protect his property. But it doesn't always make the nightly news. In this case it did.   

But...

How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle?  How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?

And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly...
