Well, it's not national news or anything - but it is cool. There's a thing or two in the report that I don't think I liked - but I need to read it again.

I've heard a few people say that if their house was broken into that they'd probably grab the pistol or shotgun even if the AK was closer for legal reasons - well not this guy.

Just thought I'd give you something to read.

These guys weren't huntin' them down. Just lookin' for targets of oppurtunity. Luckly it turn out OK, maybe just a little smelly suspects.I prefer a shotgun for upclose and personnal. Ak's are for mediumn distance supression of fleein' perps. Then there is olde reliable for that reach out and touch someone approach. The Tenn. Squirell Rifle for Ala. Gray ones around Burmingham (.50 BMG Barrett M-82-1).10-Shots is more than enough to deter someone from fleein'.

Gotta love the sheriff's quote, always CYA...(politicians are all alike, badge or not)

"I would advise against anything like that because I don't want to see any citizens get themselves hurt." ~Sheriff Loftis

From the sounds of things, these guys did the most reasonable thing they could. Glad nobody was hurt!

And notice how they made sure to call them "Vigilantes". They were not driving around looking for trouble or anything. they were taking care of the business and the criminals came to them. Vigilantes my ass. Next they'll call them Militia Members because they used military arm(s).

edited to say whoops sorry for the repeat. This slant just pisses me off!
