    I thought in most states it's called murder to shoot someone over personal property.

    I disagree, the safest thing to do would be let the guy go with the TV. This could of emasculated into something bad since he went after him.

    Now if he was inside the home....game on.

    Could someone who knows the law clear this up. What happens if the guy is even stupider (Thief) and walks towards the man with the gun unarmed, and gets shot? Isn't it the fault of the homeowner because he had other options? Like he could have stayed armed inside his house?

    In Texas, and only in Texas, you can shoot someone to protect yours or someone else's property. Technically that man with the shotgun could blow that criminal away to halt the theft.

    Everyone remember Joe Horn? He didn't break any laws. The complete Joe Horn 9-11 call - YouTube

    Personally I agree with the law. If someone was breaking into my car or a neighbors house I'd prefer to have the option to do something about it rather than sit in my house and watch.

    hmmm, dude with the TV has both hands full.. even if he were to drop the TV and go for a gun, a single squeeze of the trigger on the shotgun would end his life rather quickly, so in that sense I guess you right, it would emasculate into the death of the burglar.

    sounds like we have a liberal here.. no, it's NOT the responsibility of the militia to let the police handle everything (yes that man is a member of the United States Militia)
