    Burglar Flees With No Loot and No Clothes

    Mods, I realize he wasn't armed so feel free to move as necessary, but I thought it was a good story that was worth posting.

    Funny story, and good conclusion.

    I tried to go back and re-read it again, but I couldn't get back into the story. Anyway, I thought I remembered the GG, in referring to the BG handcuffed in the patrol car, that he was quoted saying, "It really wasn't a big deal" or something like that
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    That story made my day.

    It turned out pretty well, even if the BG didn't get shot. Heck, I think it makes a better story this way.

    I don't know if I'd be grabbing at the BG's nasty 'nads, though...

    Great story...

    but...

    “We always teach never to confront an intruder,” Midthun said. “But I think in the heat of the moment something kicked in, and they were not going to let this guy leave. That was the decision that they made, and that tells you a lot about who they are. They’re strong, resilient, great people — a couple that you or I would want as our neighbors.”
    Why? Why do they "always teach never to confront"?
