    By committing an armed robbery the BG made himself fair game. By shooting at the property owner he just earned bonus points.

    Way to go for the building owner, thats one less piece of crap that we don`t have to waste our tax dollars on while there in prison.

BUT, if Texas law allows someone to drive after someone who robbed you when you know they have a weapon and run them down with a car, then he probably won't get in trouble.

    I'm in Guantes camp on this one for sure.

    Quote from article;

    The building owner, whose name has not been released, got into his car and followed the suspect. During the chase the suspected robber fired a handgun at the driver, who then rammed the suspect against a metal fence in the parking lot of a strip mall about a half of a block away near 7313 Northline, police said.

    According to the article, to me it sounds like a clear cut case of self defense.

    He will probably get away with that in Texas, but I bet his car insurance rates are going to skyrocket.

    Legal? In Texas? Probably.

    Smart thing to do? Heck no. Risking his life for $800? It's gonna cost him more than that to fix his Lexus. That's what insurance is for.

    While I admire his spirit, this was just dumb.
    The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
