In the wake of the Trayvon Martin case, we yet again see a registered gun owner facing legal issues for protecting himself and his family. Merritt Landry reacted to his dog barking and someone jumping over his fence that surrounds his property. He fired 1 round at the intruder which incapacitated him. Sadly enough, this intruder was a 14yr old boy that seemed to be up to no good. The news report explains how this should be seen as an issue for the boys parents and community, not for Merritt.

Keep popping a cap in their punk azzes, they get the hint sooner or later. Working people are tired of the thieves.

If he had imminent fear for his life/safety or the safety of his family, he had every right to shoot. Stand your ground laws, read into them. He had a pregnant wife and a baby daughter in the house. Why wait until a crime has been committed and someone is hurt? I am glad to see members of every race that support this man.

here we go - another punk @ss black thug doing wrong and gets shot by a laww abiding white guy. what happens next? the white guy is arrested and charged with a crime and the lil black thug has ruined a whole family. to start the thug should be charged with trrespassing at the least and attempted burglury maybe. fear not - jesse, al, and obama will soon be on the case. our illustrious attorney general will bring to bear all his office's power and the four (horsemen) will teach that bad white man to protect his family against stinking black scum.

Shoot. Shoot. Shoot. I don't care if its a person. An animal. Or whatever. Make it a Nissan sentra. Who cares. You feel threatened,open fire. Justify your reasoning later.

A kid got off the school bus and he cut across MY yard!! He looked really redneck. I felt extremely threatened, I didn't know what he had in his backpack. Tomorrow I might have to shoot him because he makes me nervous!!

They have video of the same 2 youth coming by earlier that day and looking at which house to rob. It also showed the youth jumping over a privacy fence. That is enough for me to feel threatened. Redneck... ha!

People have a right to protect their family. What are you supposed to do if you encounter an intruder. Ask their age, their race, their name, address and telephone number. Invite them to set down and talk it over. Try and reason with them. Plead. Debate. What's wrong with society? Sorry but I'll shoot and ask questions later.
