    Men accused of pointing gun at new homeowners changing locks

    Robert Canoles says he was initially praised by responding officers, the Associated Press reports.


    "I don't know what they can charge me with," Canoles said late Monday before turning himself in, the Journal-Constitution reports. "This is my Second Amendment right. Look, this is the country out here, and we protect our own."

    Dimwits. Idiots like that give intelligent gun owners and neighborhood watch participants months worth of bad publicity to try to overcome.

    My thoughts exactly. Your last life isn't in danger from someone picking someone else's lock, so you shouldn't draw your gun in that scenario.

    At some point they decided: First we sneak up on the burglars. Second, we hold them at gun point. Third, we call the police.

    Couldn't they have just gone straight to step 3: "Hey cops, come on down. Someone's breaking into the home next door."

    Or do the neighborly thing, grab a stool, look over the fence, and ask, "hey, do you live here now? " if they are burglars, they won't be sticking around, then call the cops.

    Edit: of yea, Batman and robin were not father son...fyi

    If I had been the homeowner, he wouldn't have had to worry about the police. Come on my property and point a gun at me, you better have a marked police car behind you and a badge showing on your person. I would have dropped him as soon as he pointed the gun at me. And I would have been within my rights. Neighborhood watch is getting to be a bigger threat than MS13!

    I wouldn't advocate trying to beat a guy who is already pointing a gun at you to the draw but there is a reason I don't care for the Neighborhood Watch

    I bet there's a fair chance they aren't even in a neighborhood watch, but the media reported it that way because they liked the sound of it. Either way, pulling your gun on people isn't part of a neighborhood watch.

    That happened in Cambridge, I believe and it resulted in Obama saying the police acted stupidly and the cop and the victims got a free beer at the white house. :)

    Humor aside, you would think they would just call the cops. But then I saw their pictures...
