Too funny

What's going to be funny is when they walk into somebodys house and find the owner sitting there with a loaded gun in his hand. Shoot first, ask questions later in that case!

I heard about something like this happening up in the Howard City area, too, but these people actually come to the door carrying a clipboard (I guess to look like they are in some sort of official capacity) and if they are not confronted (i.e. nobody's home) they break in.

Me too...LOL. I know just about every car that would ever pull into any of my neighbors houses. We (neighbors) also know each others schedules. It kind of sounds creepy, but at least I feel safe.

I can only see one house from mine, which I keep an eye on for intruders, I hope for the same from them. If someone breaks into their house and I see it, watch out. Remember that Texas dude?

Intruders will die. Then the bodies will be fed to my wolf and that which hasn't been consumed will be cast into an indian fire!

Our neighbors watch our home and we watch theirs. And I now sleep with a loaded 3006! I would not think twice about using it in my home either! We really live in a creepy world now!

Holland thefts are going through the roof. There is a guy hitting random parking lot's in Holland city, Holland Twp and Park Twp. He is stealing many purses and wallets. It's amazing how many people believe their property is safe because it's locked in a car.

At night you have kids going through neighborhoods and looking through vehicles. They are stealing electronics, GPS units and anything of value!

With the holiday approaching, they are only going to get more active with presents loaded up.

They would be very stupid to enter our home, I'm home during the day and at times, it appears that I'm not home, but I am there. NOW I will have my 44 Magnum loaded and ready to use.

We have several Rod & Gun clubs in our area and we shoot for fun. Our kids shoot too (rifles) On one occasion, our 11 year old daughter shot an uzi. I hope the robbers are reading this, and thinking twice, because they will be shot if they enter our home.
IF we have to shoot a robber, it will be to kill him, not to hurt him, got it?

No one wants to help others anymore without the fear of being accused themselves. Is there a neighborhood watch program there?

just remember,an armed society is a polite society..and since unemployment has grown,more folks are sitting around their homes trying to conserve what little money they have..but,shoot fast as the criminals are aware that people are more likely to be protecting their property so they will be a bit quicker on the trigger as well!and there is only a fine line between protecting communities and being vigilanties!and always shoot to kill,then there is only one side of the story!

I think the new's should release a statement saying(thiefs beware the house your breaking into may not be unoccupied)The owner maybe sleeping, Then fabricate a story, about a thief breaking in a home and the home owner was sleeping and woke up when he heard a noise, and had shot the thief/s. Then maybe It will put a little scare in some people.

I live in this area and have been stolen from before, I have 24 hr survelence, a loaded 12 Gauge and 3 dogs.I will shoot first then ask questions..People arm yourselfs!! and take every precaution, with many people including myself being unemployed, losing everything, and unable to find work..this type of crime is going to happen more often! This country and state are a mess!!

Grand Haven used to be a nice place to live, and now I think I may need a weapon. The scariest thing about this story is that it is happening near my house, and there were fresh tracks around my house on Monday when I got home for work. I would pitty the dumb bastard who tries anything. As pissed as I am about the economy and the snow, I may beat the bastard with my new snow shovel.
