While anti-gun fanatics try and blame guns for crime, Miguel highlights one of the REAL reasons.  Long story short, goblin gets ventilated trying to steal some property.  Sister of goblin says he wasn't a 'bad guy'. 
“He’s a good guy, you know,” said Lynn Eason, Holdman’s sister. “He never really hurt nobody or went out of his way to be mean or nasty to anybody. Maybe he did get caught in the wrong situation, but I think it could have been handled differently, better than that.”
“He wasn’t armed. I mean, lawn equipment?” said Melissa Jones, a friend of Holdman. “It doesn’t make no sense to kill somebody for a weedwacker that cost $110. C’mon. That’s somebody life.”
Her definitions of 'good guy' and 'hurt' seem to be a bit skewed. This wasn't just a one-shot event of some guy stealing to feed his family.  Take a look at skippy's record:

So we have multiple battery charges, resisting officers w/ violence (missed the O), 'strongarm' robbery.  Yeah, real sweetheart this one.

And you can see the problem.  One can guess that his actions have been defended and apologized for his entire life. Why shouldn't he continue if he's got the support of his family and friends?  But anti-gun fanatics will NEVER point to that, instead they'll blame the home-owner for defending himself. As the CSGV has stated: "'Using armed violence in any context is flat out wrong..."

Minor correction: from the list, shouldn't that be "resisting officers w/o violence"?

The thief should have asked the same question. Is this weedeater worth my life. If the answer is yes then give it a try.

If you fear imminent death or serious bodily harm from someone climbing up on your roof and trying to break into your trailer, do not wait till they have climbed down and started off with your weedwhacker before shooting them. And do not say you shot him because he stole your stuff.

Avoiding (as opposedbto ignoring) the morals of the situation, the law is pretty clear on the difference between self defense and stopping somebody as they walk away with your garden tools. But that's not going to stop folks on either side from beating their chests and proclaiming their side is the correct one.

Bottom line as I see it is this precious little snowflake was going go get shot some day. It's just too bad someone did it for the wrong reason.

stay safe.
