Repeat after me everyone.. Rule #4 of gun safety: Be sure of your target and what is beyond it. I mean, I understand the father's need to protect the ownership of his beloved 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass, but this is the kind of stuff that gives us gun owners a bad name... not to mention a field day for the local news of a predominant city such as Pittsburgh. Am I the only one who's noticed the ridiculous amount of coverage of gun crime in their local news lately?
Why would you defend the stealing of a 1986 gray Oldsmobile Cutlass? I would have put the pink slip on the dash and the keys woould have been in the ignition.
Can you use lethal force in defense of property in PA? He may be facing some criminal action if not.
This certainly doesnt sound like a case of self defense to me.
