    Probably not the best business to be in right now, with all the car thefts/armed robberies and subsequent increased ccws.

      just because you posses a ccl does not give the right to shoot someone because they are taking your property. A ccl is for your protection from bodily harm.

    a car isn’t repossessed “just because” – these people likely knew well in advance this would happen if they didn’t pay their bill. and this guys mom on the news defending him is such a joke. yeah, pull out a gun instead of calling the cops. that achieves a lot. NO EXCUSE is good enough for aiming a gun at someone’s head over a CAR.
