    Shot with his own gun he left in his car

    "Tennessee man shot with his own gun after confronting car burglars, police say"

    An example of why you should never leave your gun in your car.
    Lucky for this guy he wasn't killed.

    What's the old saying? Oh, yeah. Its "Don't get out of the boat."

    ESPECIALLY if you are an idiot who leaves his gun outdoors in a glass box that is prone to break ins. That increases the odds that the possibly armed burglar is now LIKELY armed.

    All the more reason to call 911, warn them the intruder is likely armed, and let the cops deal with him.

    (or carefully and quietly open the bedroom window, drop him from the window with your suppressed rifle, and SSS just for safety's sake.)

    A friend of mine who was once a huey pilot in Vietnam once made a statement that has always stuck with me...
    If your weapon isn't on your person, and you have to leave your a/c in a hurry, your weapon will, most-likely, still be in the a/c AFTER you leave it.
    Bottom line, keep it on your person, not just in your vehicle!
    To this day...I keep my weapon on my person, not just in my vehicle!

    Earlier this year there was a car break-in, maybe more than one, in Lafayette.
    A handgun was taken from a vehicle.
    Minutes later that stolen gun was used to shoot a friend of mine, in his own home.
    He was shot multiple times, and then the house was set alight.

    My friend of more than 30 years lay dead on his living room floor as his house burned around him.

    Please do not leave firearms unattended.

    People who break into cars are lazy. Unlocked car and things in plain sight are easy for the lazy car burglar. If you have to leave it in your car (entering GFZ), put an extra lock between the gun and the burglar. For us Glock/Honda Civic owners the inside trunk release has a locking feature. Ain't getting in the trunk without the key/fob or a lot of tools.

    This. Reports every damn night down here on the south side of people on camera checking for unlocked cars to ransack. And a handful of "they busted muh window and stoled the expensive item I left on my seat in plain sight." The best are the "they stole my purse/wallet." Really?
