    He was brave to go in to escort his wife out. He was foolish to go back. In his memory, I will stick with brave.

    This sickens me , all he had to defend his wife and himself was words and fist against an armed thug . Glad his wife got out but very sad for his family. Gun control out of control

    He appears to have been brave and hardworking. He made a mistake as have I. Mine just didn't have the consequences his did. Condolences to his family.

    Am I the only one who remembers the Charles Bronson "Death Wish" movies? For those too young to have seen them, its time for a viewing.

    The premise is that this guy who lives in cities with strict gun bans (NY, Chicago, etc), has family members attacked/raped/killed, by muggers, gang members, etc.

    The hero of these movies is a stand up guy. Hes middle class, law abiding, korean war vet, and was not a gun owner. Of course, that gun owner status changes after his family is victimized, and he goes out for walks (or whatever), knowing that he will almost certainly be mugged. When he is, well he dispatches the muggers.

    The police are horrified, and the citizens of the city celebrate him as a hero. The crime rate plunges...well worth watching.

    I remember seeing this and I believe a whole series of similar movies. Yet, many of them were denounced as "vigilantism" and we cannot have that now can we. We understand the frustration about crime and how it just seems to get worse but if we resorted to what Charles Bronson's character did, at some point, then we would be not much higher advanced than the knuckle draggers were would be hunting down.

    Yet, it does seem to be and often is thought of in cases such as this. We feel the urge to strike back at the criminal activity in any way we can. Going out and dispatching some thugs to the next world seems like the thing to do but is it really?

    I don't have the answer and perhaps we just don't have one.

    I'm not sure that is correct , If you are in a gun type self defense situation where violence is being directed your way and you put a stop to it and you save yourself it solved the issue .
