Thread: TX man shoots men robbing his neighbors

  1. The older I get the less it takes to threaten me. Shotgun rack on my walker.

    No doubt blocking access to the turn signal.....blinking "Left turn" for 10 miles.

    HA!

I don't see the need to shoot a man over 50 bucks which is about all the cash I carry. Now, if he says I'm fixing to kill you and take your money, or even hint he is going to hurt me, then I will unload and sleep like a baby that night. Its really sad that there are those out there that would rather steal than work. I understand that and hate a freaking thief worse than anything, but for real now that is what we pay insurance for. The law does a fairly good job at getting your things back and if not you'll be paid for them. I have always had the opinion that a man is his own worst enemy and Mr. Horn has a long road ahead of him as MagistratePO stated. I bet if you talk to Mr. Horn this time next year, he will say he wished he would have minded his own business, did his civil duty by calling the police, and told them which direction they left in.
    All well and good if he takes your money and runs, as long as he doesn't stop and realize that you can identify him and slip that blade between your ribs.

    i think that he should have shouted to them first,then take action from there,in which way they would have responded,i feel that it was not warranted to shot at this time,i understand that no weapon was seen and that there was no life or death threat to him,as we all know there is no such thing as firing in the air as a warning,i think this was a instant reaction before he grasped the whole situation,thus adding more fuel onto the anti-gun problems,i think that he should have viewed them closely and called in their profiles and what they had in their arms.

  8. Wow!

    I just listened to the dispatch tape of the shooting. I gotta say, I would not want Horn as my neighbor, he is a nut! Part of being a gun owner is being level headed. Being able to judge a situation and determine the most prudent course of action. In times of real danger, you are not given that opportunity; you simply just have to react to save your life. This was not that time for him. He was in an ideal place where he could evaluate a situation: in his home away from the danger posed by the crimminals. He would of been an ideal witness if he remained calm and recorded as much information about the crimminals as he could. It was "stuff" they were taking, not a life. You can tell his anger at the robbery led to his shooting those crimminals. It was not out of self defense or to save someone's life, it was just because he was pi$$ed at the robbery. The violation he felt of his neighbor being robbed is not reason enough to shoot someone.
    He has done a great diservice to all firearm holders. He will forever be cited in the media as "typical gun owner". I hope he goes to jail for murder.

    + 1 Exactly. I read all the posts from (obviously) younger guys and their hand combat skills and think back to when I studied Karate and Aikido. Now with severe arthritis of the spine, and age 72 I can pretty much forget that stuff, not to mention hitting the dirt and rolling while pulling my gun and all that running and movement training. (and if I did hit the dirt I'd hope someone other than the dirt bag was around since someone might have to help me get back on my feet.:D) I go to the range with a buddy because I can't bend over to pick up my brass other than just a few times. It's he ll to get old but the alternative isn't attractive either.

    While I agree Horn is an imbecile I still note the the drive by media only plays the worst parts of the tape, (which are bad enough.) They leave out the part about one of the pukes coming into his yard headed towards his house and the part where he said he was frightened when that happened.

    I am 58 and can tell a big difference just in the last 4 or five years. Also I took martial arts for a couple years. I always thought of it as something to use to get the BG off of me long enough to get to my gun.
