    Bad! Grandfather arrested for detaining perp

    Guy comes home, catches burglar in the act, holds him for the cops and is busted for it.

    Mr. Fleming yelled, “Freeze!” and fired a shot into the ground before holding the crook at gunpoint.
    I say the guy deserved an award and a big pat on the back. Instead, they confiscated all his firearms. Not cool, New Hampshire.

    He wasn't detained for hold the guy for police, he was detained for discharging the weapon. DA elected not to file charges so he should have his guns back.

    When are people going to wake up and realize that firing a warning shot is only acceptable in Hollywood movies?

    ^^^^^ As you will notice^^^^^^^

    Ret is one of the sharper sticks in the forest.

    The guy was doing what he thought was the right thing to do, but should have called cops, and told perp to lay on ground, and if he fled, be a good witness.
