    Who cares if the state of Arkansas allows warnings shots or not… In my opinion he did the right thing by scaring them burglars away… C’mon now your gonna sit there and say you wouldve not done ssoif it was your case? You wouldve gladly allow some hoodlum to come in your home and take away wjats yours? It aint like he pointed at them and shot them!! He did the right thing…

    better to fire shots into the ground than into the air. Either way, I would’ve done it regardless of city ordinance law.
