Where was Obama, and why wouldn't he save this man? I suppose Obama simply doesn't care.

I surprised no one mentioned that it's George Bush's fault that this poor man is resorting to stealing to support his drug habit. After all, he caused this economy to take a nose dive and some people have no choice but to steal from others. Right?

Wrong... Crackheads and the likes are always going to be stealing, thats why this is America and people like him will break into the wrong home and the last thing they will see is the flash from the muzzle.

SirKnight, this criminal's addiction would last only until 2019 when Nashville Post is predicting such a robust local economy there will be more open jobs than workers to fill them.

And the government says that we aren't supposed to protect ourselves when someone breaks in to our homes? That we're supposed to have our guns taken apart and put away so we can't hurt opurselves...Ok, someone breaks into MY place, that person will find that MY gun won't take anytime to pull and SHOOT!!! Just like the government says we can't disapline our kids...Sorry, if MY kid needs a spanking, he's GOING TO GET ONE!!!! Uncle Sam is "NOT" in MY family. And is NOT about to tell ME that I CAN'T spank MY OWN SON!!! This dude busted for breaking into homes to support his habit probably didn't get disaplined while growing up as the way he should have been!!!
