Well you shouldn't have been carrying that shiny object.


And wearing a mask, and sneaking around houses in the middle of the night.

I definitely agree with this.

unintended consequence of high levels of gun ownership?

If he didn't have a gun and just shone a light or yelled at him, maybe the kid would have run away.

Seems like another example of "home defense" going wrong.

I definitely agree with this.

The only question here is, how long do the police take to respond there?

I would recommend an extremely bright weapon mounted flood light on a multi round shot gun if you're going to go out in the dark to play with intruders.

Good luck shooting me once I turn on my light and bleach out your rods and cones. Shot gun sucks for killing guys but you can tell them to, "Lay down with your hands behind your head unless you want more BBs." while you wait for those cops you phoned.

Get night vision glasses, close you eyes when you shine the bright light at his eyes for a few seconds then switch back and open your eyes if you really want the upper hand.

I agree with your assessment.

I would take at least partial cover behind something and shout "stop right there criminal scum". It would totally be worth it.

You mean you wouldn't just open fire on the unknown person until they lie motionless? What if they had a thermonuclear device? Then you would be sorry.

Other sources indicate that he was carrying a knife and lunged at his father. The reports that I've read seem hazy on many of the details.

I would say that calling the police would have been the best idea.
