This is a discussion on "WE" all know better, don't we? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Beavercreek man shoots at thief trying to break into wife’s car...
People like this ruin it for everyone else. BE SMART!
Just remember: When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Robbery; the act or practice of robbing; specifically: larceny from the person or presence of another by violence or threat.
Burglary; the act of entering a structure to commit another crime, typically a theft.

In OUR CCW training, in the state of Ohio: You DO NOT have the right to shoot at people outside to defend property, especially unarmed people in the dark who are not threatening or shooting at you.
