I can't imagine why anyone would break into a house around here.
I have a new next door neighbor. He is in the Navy and works at the Navy brig (the same one where they held Hamdan). One of the first things he said to me is that he would definitely shoot to kill any intruder.
(He also said they still have "the cage" they built for Hamdan, which makes me wonder).
My neighbor on the other side, who moved in in August and who is also in the Navy, had said essentially the same thing about shooting intruders during my first conversation with him.
Neither of these guys was particularly being a tough guy either, it was all rather matter of fact.
I don't mind. The more intruders that get shot, the fewer will bother me.
My neighbor two houses over was mugged at gun point a couple of days ago, and had his nose broken by by being hit with the gun. Two blocks away, walking to the 7-Eleven. 757!
