    And the skateboarder could accidently knock someone down causing them to split their head open on the concrete... and so on and so one... it all boils down to those teens as to being the primary source of cause... period.

    You both nailed it. I'm not condoning shooting a kid or anything. But, you never know who you are dealing with nowadays.

    To others who posted in support of my view, thank you!


    No it was not my son, I taught my son better than that!! I am in no way excusing these kids misbehavior, I can't stand little punk kids going around causing trouble etc. BUT I do believe this guy was just a little excessive.

    Feel the same way, but again, you never know who you are dealing with. So, don't take the chance to antagonize an old man, or anyone for that matter!! Parents need to step up their parenting skills...

    These brats are rude and disrespectful. They constantly harass people and the police never do anything. They say "I didn't witness it so I can't do anything". There are no penalties for these kids. Hopefully getting shot will teach them a lesson. Do you all remember when you were kids? We would never think of doing the crap these kids do.

    ...IF the article is accurate, the man should not have fired a warning shot in the direction of the kids, and IMO should not have fired a warning shot at all. Should not have used pepper spray either.

    1st rule of gun safety: always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction


    Now... if the article is inaccurate, and the man feared for his life or the life of another, then the escalation of force applied (pepper spray first, then shotgun) becomes more debatable...


    I don't put a lot of faith in accurate reporting when it comes to possible self defense situations

    They definitely were not angels, but the actions that the man took just end up being fodder for the gun snatchers.

    @Dustin - Even firing into the air to "scare them off" can be considered reckless endangerment and is a felony in and of itself. IIRC.

    Somewhere, a teacher is crying with their red marker after reading your dribble.

They were in no way posing a threat to him, he was just annoyed with them. What would you say about this had the kid died from his gunshot? He should rot in jail!!
    Most of those condos and adjacent parking lots are way off the main road and are very secluded. If there were troubled teens in your back yard at night wouldn’t you feel threatened?

    Wouldn't that be illegal anyway, discharging a firearm in a residential area? I did a few searches, only came up with AA and Montgomery Counties.
