    The story so far seems to be missing a lot of details. Even if the guy thought he was attempting a legitimate citizen's arrest the use of deadly force is clearly unwarranted. I would be interested to see what else the investiation turns up.

    As far as we know he's crazy and was illegally carrying that gun.

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.

    That sounds a lot more like attempted rape / robbery than citizen's arrest. I would guess that was his standby story if he got caught.
