You can't be too careful nowadays. I don't trust anyone I don't know. I too have a handgun permit & likely would have done the same thing to protect my property & family, especially since we have been broken into three times & had thousands of dollars worth property & vehicle stolen or destroyed by vandals. As far as today's youth go, most are becoming sorrier, lazier, & more worthless as each year passes & as more parents either neglect or enable them (often in the name of "spoiling"). Parents need to step up to the plate & be parents & NOT buddies, reinstilling the discipline lost over the years & perhaps these sort of unfortunate incidents would be cut down or go away altogether.
