Good way to get oneself shot you say,then I ask,why didn't you shoot them? I definitely would have had it been me they attempted to burgle.You know we have a Castle law in Missouri,don't need a permit to have fire arms in your home,and you would suffer no legal problems if you kill the piece of crap breaking in. Get yourself over to Cabelas post haste and get a gun.You may have missed your chance of a lifetime to kill a bad guy.Later

I agree this is what you need to do as they may be back.

Trust me, if someone breaks in our house they will not live to see another day.

May I ask what neighborhood you live in and did you call the police and did they catch them?

Sounds like a meth or crack head. They like XBox's and flat screens to pawn. Did you have any boxes out on the curb for pick up?
I agree

I think you're correct. No dragging the body inside these days tho, you'll do time for sure for doing something that dumb.

Watch the movie "Felon" sometime.

Nope,nope and more nope. The Castle law allows for you to kill anyone,anywhere on your property if they present a threat to you or yours. Under the same law in Missouri,you may also carry a weapon in your car for the same defense reasons, as the Missouri law considers your auto as an extension to your home.You need not have a CCW permit to carry in your car only.You must be of legal age,and without priors, but this only applies in the confines of our state.Later

I agree, but the law states
"Said attacker must have unlawfully or forcefully entered the defender’s dwelling or vehicle"

That is not the same as anywhere on your property.
So you can't kill someone just because they set foot on your property and you felt threatened.

My bad,didn't quite place my words properly.Granted,can't just shoot someone who is on your lawn or driveway,however the post that started this thread implied the perps were at the window attempting to come in,that's grounds for a shot or two.This crap about shooting the perp and dragging his butt into the house is ludicrous,have heard it for years and it's BS.Likewise when you are in your car,cant open fire just because the guy along side flips you the bird and you're right,attempt to enter must be obvious before you open fire.Later

Yeah but how do you prove an 'attempt to enter' or a 'life threatening situation'? I'd say the only way to do that is if the perpetraitor is carrying a weapon. Otherwise if you shoot an unarmed person out of 'suspicion' and that person or their family is litigius, you've just created a legal nightmare for yourself.
