    Thief says he's not armed and won't hurt you - you are supposed to believe that? What if the thief tosses the TV at you and pulls a gun stuffed in his waistband that you can't see because your view is obstructed?

    If you are really worried about this, I can only suggest you read the law and then ask an attorney (I'm a lawyer, but not an Internet lawyer, and not a crim law lawyer).

    As for the lawyer's comments, sounds like he's still taking law school exams.

    As for me, I'd be in *great fear* for my life. I'm in a room, probably less than 10 feet away from a criminal that thought it worth the risk to break into someone's home and take their property, and in less than a second the situation can become deadly if he is armed (and even if he is not armed with a gun).

    My theory:

    He is armed!!!

    He is just letting me hold the weapon for a few seconds.

    My $.02:

    a) You are not in danger... This is the word of a person in the process of committing a felony. A LEO would not accept his word and therefore I do not believe it is 'reasonable' that an armed citizen should accept it either. If the person approaches you it is a threat; he could be distracting you in an attempt to seize your weapon so using force would be justified. If he turn to leave another way deadly force may not be 'reasonable' but giving a play by play to 911 is an option.

    b) kidnapping/unlawful imprisonment... you are apprehending a person committing a felony i.e. citizen's arrest. That would negate either option except to the most vulture-like attorney.

    c) should lawyers who seek monetary gain from lawsuits by criminal actions for the benefit of the criminal be charged as an accomplice... that is another thread.

    Hey Gene: Loved your last reply to me. Two things about your comments. 1. The initial thread did not say that the burglar took the remote and 2. Batteries, especially the good ones can be expensive and you are right not to give him any. We agree on everything else.
