    I hate to say it, but the Vet was wrong on so many levels. He put himself and those around him in harm's way because the BGs were stealing somebody else's "stuff." Then the BG shooter is shot and killed while he was in his car trying to get away.

    Yes, it took "brass"(Big Brass) to do what he did, but he still caused the actual shooting by his actions. Call 911 and be a good witness. Just because the good guy has good controlled fire doesn't mean that the BG wouldn't spray-and-pray hitting innocent bystanders. This is a case of bad decisions that had a good outcome.

    The second article has a lot more information. The Marine had to go to his vehicle to get his firearm. Bet he has it own him next time. Hope they catch the third guy.

    The only thing he did wrong was not drop him before he actually got an opportunity to fire a shot . His car wasn't "base", he was still armed and able to shoot while sitting in the car. Great job Marine.

    Any criminal willing to shoot someone over his stolen "GameBoy" stuff, would eventually just shoot someone else for just as little. It's better that he departed from this world and will hurt no one else.
    One dirtbag dead, the other will hopefully serve life for the 'murder during a crime', and the Marine is still alive. Good outcome...

    Although I do not disagree with what he did completely, in Oklahoma he would likely be in jail right now for doing it.

    I'd have to know more before I would decide if what he did was necessary. Not being there, I'd say kudos to the Marine. I'd make sure they were a threat to me or someone else, as opposed to making a rapid egress, before shooting. Maybe he was thinking they'd hit the Quiznos next. In S.E.Texas, he's more likely to get congratulated than prosecuted. He doesn't have any reason to fear the AUTHORITIES. The surviving BG's lawyer will get a copy of the police report, with the CHL holder's name. The dead perp's family will eventually find out who he is. He needs to stay vigilant. The man I relieved at work Tuesday told me about almost getting robbed in a town to the north of Houston. All he had to do was produce his pistol and the guy ran. The police told him in no uncertain terms that he should have shot the guy. He recently moved here from a state on the east coast. I told him "You are in Texas now." "Choot 'em!"

    This subject is not only a well worn path, it's a minefield. Hard core opinions on both sides. I'm afraid I come down on the side that says the Marine was wrong despite the outcome. He wasn't directly threatened, escalated the danger level for all those around, and shot the bad guy when he was in a car, in other words, no longer a threat. Up here, he'd be in deep excrement. Concealed carry is for personal protection, not the green light to play cop.

    He's not in Oklahoma, thank goodness, the citizens of Texas still have the legal right to try to arrest or stop felonies in progess.

    Anytime someone produces a handgun in self defense, a person puts people around him in jeopardly...if people cannot see this, then perhaps they should stop carrying firearms. Nothing this man did was illegal by Texas state law. The BG may have been still shooting from the vehicle as the CHL holder fired upon him...

    Sir, when would it be alright to use the handgun for which you carry ? If you respond by saying, "I will only use it to protect me and mine", what's the difference ?...the bullets know no differently when they leave the handgun...truly, I'd like to know.
