A jewelry shop owner in Garden Grove, CA, open fired on five masked men attempting to rob her; at least one of the five thieves was armed.

“Our official recommendation is that business owners should not take the law upon themselves,” said Garden Grove Police Lt. Jeff Nightengale. “It is difficult because when you start shooting guns those rounds can end up anywhere. We would rather have the crime happen and have good witnesses rather than putting someone’s safety in jeopardy.”



ABCNEWS.GO.COM reports:
On Wednesday, five masked men poured into a jewelry store in a strip mall in Garden Grove, Calif., expecting to carry out a simple smash and grab robbery. But within less than a minute, they discovered they were no match for the store’s owner, a gray-haired woman whose finger seems quite comfortable on the trigger.

    Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    Amen to that.

    I don't mind being judged by anyone, so long as they aren't complete imbeciles.

    Some people have a problem with logic and are averse to making people suffer the consequences of their actions. This is a direct result of morality's deconstruction.

    In a Nano second. About a month ago there was a Jewelry store robbery a few miles down the road from me and the owner shot to death one of the robbers, the other three that got caught are now charged with his murder along with robbery. Folks here don't talk about guns we just use them when needed.

    "NO. Wrong topic. The guy fired a gun at him first."

    In that case my answer changes radically. :-)

    According to the video, one of the robbers fired a shot in response as they were fleeing from the store. So it is apparently you who misunderstood the circumstances, though in the situation you describe I would agree with you.

    The jewelry store is no less sovereign than your home.

    Furthermore, there is no substantive distinction between your home and the jewelry store.

    There are people who can be harmed and items with capital value in both places.
