    Not his first time using a gun..

    "But it's not the man's first time using a gun.."
    found at: WISH TV 8: Indianapolis News and Weather - Home

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Metro Police say a homeowner shot a man in self-defense outside his eastside home Saturday morning. But it's not the man's first time using a gun.

    Metro Police were called by a homeowner, Richard Burns, who said he had just shot a man behind his Brookville Road home.

    "Apparently he heard a noise outside, went outside to see what was going on, and related to the detectives that this individual came at him with a knife, and which time he fired a shot," IMPD Sgt. Paul Thompson said.

    Burns told detectives the man he shot was coming out of his car, perhaps trying to steal it.

    The victim was hit in the chest and taken to Wishard Hospital in serious condition. While doctors work to save the victim's life, detectives work to figure out a complex case.

    Police will determine if this shooting was indeed self-defense. What they'll also look at is the fact that Mr. Burns has been involved in two other shootings, this year alone.

    Looks like this guy is cleaning up the streets faster than the PD. You would think after the second one, the BG's would pick another house.

    Interesting the way the news puts it. HE has used a gun before. The last line should read "This law abiding citizen lives in close proximity to many neighborhood savages and has had to shoot twice before because they never seem to learn to stay away from him."

    Sounds like this guy needs to move.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Sounds like the cost per use of his gun is dropping like a stone. Nice to see someone getting value for his $'s!

    Ok, he was involved in two other shootings. Was he cleared in them or are they still under investigation? If he was cleared the police shouldn't care about them. If they are still under investigation there might be a problem here. Even if this guy can be demonstrated to be predisposed to shooting people, if they are legally justified shootings, they are legally justified shootings.

    Maybe just he should just call his place a gun range that offers live targets on a random basis.

    I wonder if the neon sign that reads "free crack inside" has anything to do with it

    Have I missed something, is there a new law that limits the number of times you can defend yourself now???
