    Houston C-store owner kills robber

    Looks like the perp was college-bound from his social media self-pics.
    Or was he one of those Texas OC long gun types? /so

    C-store was about a mile from Hobby airport toward Gulf Freeway. About 1 mile from the home invasion dead perp of about 6 months ago.

    Family moved to TX from NY - guess the like the wild west' ability to protect yourself, vs facing criminal charges of having an illegal handgun.

    Looks like the guy graduated with honors .... from the school of thievery .... a sister school of Hogwarts.

    Oh my dear sweet lord, the comments on the Houston Chronicle article are making my brain explode!

    Welcome to Texas, and good shootin' there Tex.

    Told our Lost Boys from Sudan friends if they ever get pulled over by cops, and the cop asks 'where are you from Boy', tell them I'm from Texas (unless they were in East Tx) the cops would really like that response. Texas is a state of mind.

    Good for them voting with their feet to a free(er) state and using that freedom defending themselves effectively from the bad guy!
