Thatís an easy one...  Using something that is potentially lethal is not proportional to the crime of stealing bread. There is zero moral justification. If you sling a beanbag... maybe, but itís still not a good idea. You are responsible for your ammunition no matter where it lands.  Youíd better know your target and what is behind him.

But how many law abiding, gun carrying americans would shoot the bread guy ?
Probably more than you'd think.

I'd sling aiming to hit the bread out of the thieves hands- miss horribly, crack a windshield somewhere and cause a 12 car collision.

   This is the most realistic answer.

Unfortunately for you Brits, the only folks carrying guns are not law abiding, and a sling is about all you could defend yourself with! Here in the States, even though guns are more common, it is still illegal to shoot someone who does not pose an immediate threat. By definition this would mean that anyone who shoots the bread thief is no longer law-abiding unless the thief was threatening someone.
