    I believe that my infraction should be lifted...i see a whole lot of other people using language against the forum rules and theirs never gets changed by the moderators.

    My sentiments exactly. The old guy did what more people should do--defend yourself with whatcha got! Maybe the .22 was all he had left?

    I don't want to get shot by a .22, and I'd use one if it was all I had.

    But there are much better choices to be had from both power and reliability standpoints.

    They asked earl jones what he was thinking right after the shooting and earl said in his rusty old voice..."I out lasted him”

    So what are you going to do next earl (in his rusty voice)…….”I’m going to Disney world”

    Hm. Only burglary, despite someone was killed in the course of their crime, as a result of their recklessness.

    While the Kentucky murder statute (KRS 507.020) requires deliberate intent, and the manslaughter statutes (KRS 507.030, 507.040) specifically require either deliberate cause or wanton cause, it would seem to me that at minimum recklessness of the criminals' actions directly led to this death.

    (1) A person is guilty of reckless homicide when, with recklessness he causes the death of another person.
    (2) Reckless homicide is a Class D felony.

    .22 LR out of a rifle? Viable for defensive use IMHO, especially at close range.

    Out of a handgun? Would not be my first choice, due to lack of sufficient penetration. But for some folks with arthritis, or hand/wrist injuries, it is what they can handle. Then there are those with limited income who cannot afford to practice with anything else - for them, a .22 they can practice and hit with makes sense, vs the handgun they cannot afford to practice with.

    This may not be a good fit here, but I found it quite interesting. A 92 year-old WWII vet defends his home.

    Outstanding that the old guy didn't put up with it any more. Sad that it cost a 24 year old idiot his life.

    The man had worked on the enola gay in his career in the Air Force. How cool is that. Great job by him on stopping those thieves.
