In New York, Ron Dixon -- the Brooklyn father who was awakened in the middle of the night by a burglar in his two-year-old son's bedroom, and shot the intruder twice when he lunged at Dixon -- was jailed for possessing a legally purchased handgun that was not registered with the city. The burglar had a lengthy rap sheet and 19 previous arrests, but Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes came after Mr. Dixon threatening "a far worse sentence" if he didn't accept a plea bargain, and Dixon will now serve three days in jail.

I would consider three days in jail a small price to pay. Knowing that my family is unharmed and protected would be worth far more time in the pokey. The DA should be be relieved of his duties for punishing this man.

No. The legislators who approved the anti-gun lobby's agenda should be recalled and thrown out of office! The District Attorney is only enforcing the law that the People's representatives have enacted! As [b]Symtex[/b] duly noted - just another reason to live in Texas. Among Texans!

Glad to hear the man wasn't heavy handed. Still, three days in jail sucks. For defending his home and himself... I am glad I'm in Texas. You do what he did down here, and the cops will give you a pat on the back, and say "nice shootin!". God Bless Texas!
