    I hope the rifle in question wasn't one of those nasty AR's.

    It was not it was some sort of bolt action, maybe a 22, 243, or 223 from the looks of it

    Nice move by the homeowner...
    Smart thugs, they could just as easily have been shot dead. No problem though, they'll live to rob again.

    Tough job to hold 3 for a long period. Time for them to get 'ideas'.

    The video says it was his old .22 rifle. It appears very similar to an old Mossberg model 842 tube fed bolt rifle.

    "Problem was, the gun wasn't loaded. Good things these guys didn't know that" Camera pans to perps in squad car...

    Problem is, he can't load it now, there's no ammo to be found... Somebody send Mr. Magdeleno some ammo. Somewhere around the 5500 block of Bent Bough near Maple Tree.

    Quit publishing the names and addresses of victims...
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    I give the homeowner a big thumbs up for keeping his head, although lots of mistakes were made. Glad it worked out well and the BGs all got arrested.

    It was stated in the video footage that the neighborhood has had recent problems with burglaries, and that these 3 BGs were all juveniles.

    I bet they're neighborhood youths that aren't supervised or in school, and are the likely source of the problem. They were probably watching the homeowner leave for work with his wife that morning, not realizing that he was coming right back.
