Homeowner shoots armed teenage invader on his roof
The fact that the dead perpetrator was born only 16 years ago is irrelevant; self-defense comes first.

Body of shot teen-ager identified
The Tennessean, March 9, 2001

A teen-ager found shot to death behind a north Nashville home has been identified as James T. Martin, 16, of the 3200 block of Hinkle Drive.

His body was discovered in the rear of 1526 23rd Ave. N. shortly before noon Wednesday. Martin was a student at Whites Creek High School, police said.

Investigators give this account:

On Tuesday about 7 p.m., two men walked up to Herbert E. Blount, 48, of 1528 23rd Ave. N., and said they wanted to talk.

At the same time, Blount saw someone on the roof of his home pointing a gun at him. Blount, who was armed, shot at the person on the roof and then went inside. When he looked out the front door, he saw two men running down 23rd Avenue North.

Blount's mother said she heard the gunfire and also heard someone running on the roof.

Blount said he didn't call police Tuesday because he didn't think his shot had hit anyone.

Blount later talked to police about Tuesday's events and turned over his pistol, Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said. A gun and blood were found on Blount's roof.

No charges have been placed against Blount. The case is being forwarded to the district attorney's office for review.

As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
