    I must have missed something. How did he "take the law into his own hands"?

    There's a difference between taking the law in to your own hands and acting within the confines of the law.

    I hate that saying 'take the law into his/her/their own hands'. It's used to often to infer that the private person has no power, only as graciously bestowed by the powers that be.

    By what power does the state enforce the law? Isn't it delegated to them from the citizen?

    I hope the home owner does more than just buy a gun. He needs to get some kind of training so he's really ready to use his new defensive tool.

    stupid headline.....all the guy did was buy a gun for self protection because he fears the bad guys will
    come back to his home and actually try to gain entrance. Nothing any one of us here would not do.
    Typical media......lets make every gun owner look like Charles Bronson in Deathwish 3.

    I would think a reporter in Arizona would know better.....

    He took steps to protect himself, not form a lynch mob and hunt down the guys.
    Reporters and what passes for journalism today are a joke.

    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    IMHO the guy is stupid for advertising the fact he now has a gun,I woulda complained about how the Law didn't do anything and how vulnerable we now feel due to the fact you got a masked man rattling your door knob and you can't prove intent.then next time they wanta repeat the action,I'll wait til they effect entry,and then effect some controlled shots COM

    The dolt should not have spoken to the press. Now the BGs know there is a new gun in the house, probably in a drawer while he's at work.

    My house was burglarized last memorial weekend while I was camping elsewhere. 5th break in on my block in 5 months. Two doors down got it on two consecutive Saturdays. Mine was a Saturday. I figured they were coming back, so I got a gun. Then I got an alarm.
    That situation and my choice to not let it happen again eventually led to a CHL, IDPA matches, lots of range time, and getting (mostly) level-headed advice on this forum.
    The implications of my home being fair game for crooks was not okay. I took the security of my self and home into my own hands. No one has called me crazy yet.
