I read the OD and laughed. I suppose after reading the article, it makes better sense to ask the intruder what their intended purpose is in my home after they've broken a window, kicked in a door or cut through the drywall between the studs and successfully entered my home. Really?

It's just common courtesy.

Oh really, so what is your solution in the midst of a home invasion? Ask questions first and hope to get honest answers? Stfu unless you have a better answer. You break in my castle there is no logical reason to be there. I will shoot you! End of story. Unless the jury is comprised of morons like you, I'll rest my fate in their hands to decide.

It doesn't always work that way really . Your home is your castle . Here is where it gets tricky. If you're life or the life of another is in danger you can defend yourself with whatever force is necessary, including deadly for.

If say you stumble on a burglary and the intruder is running for the door or has their back to you , then you're going to have a problem if you use deadly force.

When you read the article, it appears that the burden of proof falls upon the homeowner to prove the intruder actually intended to rob you versus breaking in/trespassing. So, let me get this straight. You can break in my home but unless I sit around and wait for you to announce yourself, possibly intend to harm/kill me or my family or actually be in possession of something of value and can prove you intended to actually steal it....I'm screwed. Wrong! This is where I will take my chances and shoot first. Sorry!

If someone broke into your home, you were there. You get your gun. You confront him in your home with a gun in your hand. He makes a move toward you and you shoot him, then you're defending yourself.

Same scenario, and puts his hands in there or tries running away for just attempting to steal something, and you shoot him, then you have a problem.

You can say well the cops are only going to get one story, yours. Okay, but you still have to live with yourself. I'm a proud gun owner and a veteran that has used a gun. Killing another person is tough to do even in combat.

Now through into the mix , it's a kid, a neighborhood teenage, someone you may know . Things happen fast. Just giving some perspective.

You should be able to murder someone whenever you want if they look at you funny. It's what the founding fathers intended.

Make sure he has some sort of "weapon" and claim you were in fear of your life and then SHOOT HIM!

No Court will ever convict you, and the cops won't even arrest you. It is called "justified shooting".

Meh - Can't shoot to kill? Fine by me. I'll just bring out the old standby - aluminum ball bat and beat the living crap out of him.... after I break his leg and knees first.

put on a pot of coffee and break out the cake, sit the intruder down and ask him what his intentions are. He'll probably have a more difficult time stealing your stuff after you've been so hospitable. Might still do it, but at least you've been a good hostess so you may not get shot in the process.

1) Shoot to kill...
2) if successful, have some large plastic tarps ready to wrap the corpse in...
3) deliver the corpse to a hog farm...
4) the hogs might not devour the skull.. so have a sledgehammer and angle grinder on standby for elimination of teeth (to foil the dental records)

Always have plastic tarps ready, they are available at family dollar for $5 to $7. Burying bodies in the style of Goodfellows or Deliverance might also work. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT leave corpses unburied in the open air... Utica has enough crows...

More proof that gun owners are violent sociopaths itching for the opportunity to murder someone.
