A man is seen scoping out a porch and looking around. Suddenly, he makes a decision. He opens the front door. He soon finds out this is a poor choice for the moment. The owner of the house steps out on the front deck with a gun. He makes the stakes very clear, giving him five seconds to scram. Watch what happens next in the video below.

Uploaded by @smp_production, this clip understandably sparks some discussion in the comments.
"The owner did the right thing. He should have given a warning bump but hey, that’s the Texan in me," writes commenter @zerocrash56.
"Is nobody gonna comment on how fast the homeowner had a weapon ready to be deployed?" asks commenter @johnvanmeter125. "Bravo dude," he continues. "We should all take notes on this!"
"No one said he didn't do the right thing," says @shadowtok22. "But you should keep your doors locked."
"Salute to this homeowner protecting his property," writes @shadowtok22.
Viewer of the video @bluedragonnemesis has a different take, with some compassion, if not the same sense of judgment. "The homeowner did exactly what he should," she surmises. "But I feel like the dude that trespassed on the property seems to need some help. I hope he gets it."
Well, that was a harrowing scene. We would hope that this circumstance is rare, but the reality of the situation should not be lost upon us.
