when I read stories like this, which are often, I wish sometimes I did live in Texas. Cause here in MI the criminal would have been made out to be the victim.

Unfortunately my wife is not a shooter. She just doesn't have the right mindset, nevermind the training. I'm different, though. Since he had something in his hand that could be used as a weapon, I would have just shot him. Twice.
Sorry to hear that, Gary...hope your beloved is doing OK.
(The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon
