Greeted by a shotgun
About the Brecknock Township homeowner being acquitted of charges in connection with an incident in which he pointed a loaded shotgun at a vehicle carrying three teens that repeatedly trespassed on his property:
Harry Ramar: Hooray for the scared gun owner! The poor dear must have been terrified of those young ladies and so he used his NRA-supported rights to use his shotgun to protect himself against the three teenage girls.
Mount Joy: What? Haven't you ever heard of teenage female crooks or killers? You can't trust anyone now days
Cathy G: I can't tell if you're being facetious or not, but there are young females that rob and kill. It's naive to think otherwise.
PAconfidential: It also is becoming a common practice for females to scope out properties to provide their male counterparts with demographic info in anticipation of committing crimes -- burglary, for example.... Although I truly understand (the homeowner's) concern and right to protect his property and family, I do feel he overreacted. The Castle Doctrine was just passed in Pennsylvania last year, so I suspect this case may have been handled to set a a bit of a precedence.
