SpiderQueenDemon: Thieves are why the good Lord made shotgun cartridges you can fill with road salt.

A reasonable deterrent to theft, when the item is something like a car or house that a person depends on for their livelihood or shelter, or incapacitating a person long enough for the proper authorities to get there is a fine use of the Second Amendment. Taking a human life to prevent the theft of a thing, however, is not. You only get to kill when it's your life, body or loved ones at risk. I also think that Shepherd Book's 'kneecap loophole' is okay for thieves, but you have to put a compress on their leg after you zip-tie their hands and ask 911 for an ambulance.

The good lord does not, in fact, make these things. They lack the mass to break skin beyond a few meters.  Furthermore, it is the THIEF that places the value on his life. Not the shooter. Finally, shooting to maim is not, in fact, a "good idea" or a morally acceptable outcome. Kill em, or let them be. Shooting to maim just endangers everyone involved further, and leaves you open for legal action.  Local laws apply, of course.

Katolu: You were playing devil's advocate, I was taking the opposing devil's view. Does thievery call for death?

xria: Kahabut: hillbillypharmacist: Death is totes the right punishment for stealing a car.

Try and steal my car, and we'll find out, won't we?

I don't care what it is you think you are going to take from me, I am simply not going to allow it if I have a choice.  I have several choices, which caliber do you prefer?  Personally I like the .50 Flint lock.  It's stylish and saves time with balistics.

You're a thieving piece of trash, we have a lot of those, I can't imagine why their life should be precious?

Out of interest, in this fantasy you have of killing a thief, is their any pattern to the skin color of the person you imagine yourself killing so stylishly?

You seem to be under some fantastically wrong assumptions.

How can you shoot thieves if you're unable to notice when they steal stuff from your business?  Try getting a guard dog or something.

Survivors will be shot again!

"We hope it'll be a theft deterrent,"

Probably not to the human turds that steal your stuff.

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uhmmm, some people out there in our nation don't have Road Signs or Guns and uh, I believe that our, I, Justice System like such as uh, South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uhhh, our Burglaries  over here in the US should help the US, uh, should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our Inventory, for us.

I feel the same about d-bags that take up more than one parking spot.
