A shop owner in Corpus Christi, Texas named Rodney James Duve is shockingly facing a murder charge after shooting a thief who was robbing his store. Texas is supposed to be the land of lax gun laws but the police have been quick to throw all the blame at a man who was simply trying to protect his business.
If the law allows individuals to carry guns, they should be allowed to use those guns for protection. And that protection should extend to personal property.
If Rodney James Duve was at his home and he saw someone stealing from his house, he would have been able to shoot and kill the criminal without facing any repercussions. That same logic should extend to when he’s at the shop that he owns.
Don’t want to get shot? Don’t be a thief. It’s that simple. Be a useful part of society and you won’t have to be worried.
The only good thing out of this story is that the next time a robber thinks he’s going to steal something from a shop in Corpus Christi, he’ll think twice.
