Definitely. People (especially gun nuts) put way too much weight in "personal property." Stealing something shouldn't be a death sentence, for fuck's sake.

I agree that for the car that was a bit extreme but if it was his house I'd completely agree with the right of him shooting the man.

I think it depends on the situation. If an unarmed guy in a ski mask breaks a window and tries to steal my TV, I'm going let him take it and call the cops. If they had some kind of weapon and were trying to hurt me or a loved one, then yes, I would defend myself.

Scum who try and take from those who worked hard to earn what they have deserve whatever comes to them. I'd go as far as to wager that your community is better off for him getting exactly what he had coming.

And no, I don't even own a gun.

I think what needs to be defined in these situations is what is and isn't a threat to your, or your loved one's, safety. In this case, no-one was in danger. The guy was completely ill-justified in my opinion.

It's a whole other debate if it was his house in the middle of the night and he had a little kid and a significant other to worry about.

I am pretty sure that he is talking about buying a ranch, not going hunting on a ranch. Some people use the term house-hunting when they are looking at houses to buy.

I think he's going to hunt and kill large tracts of land used for raising cattle/livestock.

I agree with this. Just cause someone steals your property doesn't mean they should die. Nobody would get the death penalty for stealing a fucking truck, would they?

I also agree with this. This guy was way out of line by killing the thief. Now if the guy's kids were in the truck and the thief clearly had a weapon, maybe it would be justified. I guess I am just not a big fan of guns and weapons in general, and think they should only be used in the most extreme of situations. If the guy is gonna shoot (since people will have guns no matter what) shoot out the fucking tires... Plus, if the cops were to shoot a caf thief, it would be called excessive use of force (which I would agree with).
