    Like I've said before, I know laws are different. But one little phrase should stick in your head and give one something to think about in a "deadly force go or no go." The one that sticks in my head is "In The Gravest Extreme." Personally not only do I think that it is a great title for an Ayoob book, but also a great phrase that I hope would echo in my mind should I be in an encounter. Property and dignity have nothing to do with a grave extreme. That's just my personal thought.

    On another note, don't steal as there are laws out there made to where some will shoot you and there's nothing wrong with that either. To each his own I guess. We all have our own thresholds.

    In Texas all the laws involing concealed carry and defence is on our department of public safety web site, and I suspect it's on a similar sight for your state. In Texas most of our CHL course was on legalities. It is your responsibility to follow the law so the law must be a available to you.

    Robbery is not a crime against property. It's a crime against the person. That's how I look at it.

    Hmm.. I wonder why theft is considered a "property crime" then..... Someone can steal your stuff without you being involved..... You maybe feel "wronged" for having your stuff stolen.

    Robbery is taking property from a person, or in his presence, using violence or intimidation. It is a violent crime by its very nature.

    I hate it when I read news articles or watch TV and see the word robbery used when the crime that was actually committed was burglary.

    "In my opinion, anyone who is willing to take my property from me at knife or gun point, is also willing to do me grave bodily harm or kill me."

    " The greatest problem with letting him have your property, there would have to be some level of threat for that to happen..."


    Lawbreakers need to be made to fear retribution, whether they act out their lawlessness or only contemplate it. If retribution is not by the broken justice system then by the righteous law-abiding citizen. We'll have just as much crime as we're collectively willing to tolerate.
