Re: TX: Houston food delivery man shoots teen robber at night

Good point in reference to the use of commas. However, it seems to me that this is a form of squares and rectangles. All robberies are theft, but not all thefts are robberies. So, are you asserting that you can only legally use deadly force to recover property from an armed robbery during the night...

Re: TX: Houston food delivery man shoots teen robber at night

(B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from
In that line, the ""during the nighttime" only qualifies "theft". The other crimes are good for deadly force, day or night.

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

I thought it was a daytime, nighttime thing. Daytime No. Night time Yes.
Daytime/Nightime applies to theft. This is armed robbery - no daytime/nighttime limits there.

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

If something already happened, it's no longer imminent.
Well, that's the crux of my question, though - when is the imminent armed robbery over? When the wallet is surrendered? When the guy turns to leave? When he's a dozen feet away? Tomorrow?

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

I should point out, that I wouldn't have shot the fleeing robber in this case (I decided a long time ago that I'll pretty much only fire if me or my family is in direct immediate danger), nor do I recommend it. The news article just made me wonder what the law says about that situation.

LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

I was reading a news article about a recent armed robbery in Houston, and it made me wonder about a point in the law. A guy was loading groceries into his hatchback when he noticed an armed man was standing next to him. The robber pointed the gun at him and demanded his wallet, which he handed over....

Re: Another Meme Thread

Although the Feinstein quote about laying down your guns so the shooters will follow human nature and give up sounds just like something she would say, it is unfortunately fake news.

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Can’t find the free market everyone is talking about where all the groceries are free. Babylon Bee. This reminds me - a couple months back, I went on a riverboat cruise in the Netherlands and Belgium. One of the cities we stopped in was Arnhem - site of the famous "Bridge Too Far" battle in WWII, w...

Re: Trump is the last Republican President

Many will realize that Socialism is a dead end and vote accordingly.......... I hope.
I forget who said it, but someone recently pointed out that you can vote your way into socialism, but you have to shoot your way out of it.

Re: Kamala Harris would proclaim new gun-control measures through executive orders (presidential decrees?)

would also include more strident regulation
The writer of the article probably meant to say stringent, instead of strident...but, considering this is Kamala Harris we're talking about, strident really works out better....

A .44 Automag also featured prominently in a comic book series from 1975 "The Warlord". From Wikipedia "Vietnam War veteran SR-71 pilot Travis Morgan passed thr...

What does cocked and locked mean to you?

I've lately been having a bit of a disagreement with a fellow I met, who claims to be a long standing NRA certified firearms instructor. He asserts that carrying a Glock with a round in the chamber is correctly referred to as "cocked and locked". I've always understood that term to mean carrying a s...

Re: When the movies teach you about bank robbery

Speaking of bank heists, there's a great series on Netflix now, called "Money Heist". It was made in Spain, and it's about a...heist. Great series, give it a try.
