    I think this is more important then DC vs. Heller. Its a very specific case that challenged the "rules of engagements" put forward by many state laws. Sure, it will not have the legal weight as a supreme court decision. But it is a big (good!) signal.

    I think It's a great decision but I personally would not want to test my DA under the same scenario,The downside is his life has been threatened by the scumbags friends and cohorts so he may have to relocate to try to offset the chance he may be ambushed and killed for revenge.I love the defense laws in Texas,where some states would rather see you get killed so the police can do an investigation and maybe lock up your killer Texas seems to give out awards for ridding scum from our streets

    Isn't this the way it should be in all 50 states?
    Ya' gotta' love TX!

    The taking of a life is not something to be taken lightly, but what else are we to do with dirtbags wandering all over our land (U.S.), laughing at the 'injustice system', and continuing in their destruction of hard-earned property and valuable life?

    I'm glad Mr. Horn was concerned enough to be watchful in his neighborhood. We need more 'neighborhood watch programs' like his!

    As always, OMO, YMV!

    Stay armed...be watchful...stay safe!

    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    God bless Texas. I don't know if I would have had the courage to do what he did. But you never know what you'll do when under stress.

    Glad he was no-billed.

    There are many negative comments from readers that only know what the media reported but more comments from people that praised him. The naysayers must realize that one cannot determine guilt or innocence based on the inflammatory headline grabbing stories of the media.

    +1 It's not fair to pass judgement unless you are in the courtroom hearing all the facts. I don't think I'd like to test me DA on this one either based on what was reported in this article.

    Just read the story, and I found something very interesting. These 2 knuckleheads were illegals from Columbia and 1 had already been pinched for drugs and deported.

    Man, I love this state. Not that I am condoning vigilante justice or harming illegals or anything like that. But this goes to show not only do we need to defend ourselves from home grown threats but also to the percentage of illegals that don't come here to "do the jobs Americans won't do."

    Horn cleared/ per ABC news

    A Texas man who shot and killed two men he believed to be burglarizing his neighbor's home won't be going to trial. A grand jury today failed to indict Joe Horn, a 61-year-old.....
