I have always known to be true that with like force only, lately all I hear is if there is an home invasion, intruder, that it seems to be o k to fire at will.
What is the truth, is it still with similar force only, or once that door, entry is violated then at [that] early point it's considered a safety risk?
One case comes to mind, the one recently in the news where the woman was home with her children and went to hide in the attic and fired 5 times and the perp fled.
Again, if she was hiding, then how would she know if her life was in danger, isn't that the over riding fact of self defense, you can not bring a gun to a feather fight?
Law suits what they are, what if a perp makes a case that well gee, I was just here to take some cookies and the crazy homeowner just starts firing!
