A severe case of lead poisoning...

A free ride in an ambulance...

Three hots and a cot...

Castle Doctrine in Ky says you just busted a huge pile and should not be surprised if you they up with a bad case of lead poisoning.I have on idea what they expect to happen but I expect to have to clean up a mess after they cart the carcass away.

Local laws in some states have become so in favor of the intruder that I've decided it's not worth moving to a state that doesn't have castle doctrine.

Sorry, my house is my house and I should be able to escort anyone off the property if I choose. While it sounds harsh to say I should be able to shoot uninvited guests I do at least feel like I should be reserved the right to defend myself against a threat.

I know laws in KY and TX may vary, but we essentially have castle doctrine as well and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I expect a home invader to have a gun. And I expect him to have friends. And I expect at least one of them to try coming in through a second entrance.

A desire to remove some of my belongings? Some severe cat rash if he knocks over the catfood?
Multiple new piercings if I am at home.

it doesnt matter what they have. they are not coming over to bake me cookies. they will recieve a very warm welcome. the slightest hesitation in not complying with the order to go face down spread eagle or movement to point a weapon, or movement towards me will be met with gunfire.

doesnt matter what they are carrying thats irrelevant.

If they are in my home uninvited, I'm going to assume they are armed with a gun. That means the smart thing for them to do would be to either run like hell, or not make ANY sudden movements. I'm not a gambler, so I will NOT take that chance.

Lots of criminals know its a crime to carry a weapon so they grab a butcher knife in your kitchen. If they are caught in the act by law enforcement they can't be charged with carrying a weapon. On the other hand you just have to show you had a reason to be in fear for your life. If the person managed to get in the house while you are sleeping at any time it's reasonable to assume they are there to harm you.

Personally if I surprised the prowler and I can see he isn't armed I am just going to hold him for the police. I might be right within the law to shoot him. But at the end of the day you have to live with yourself and be judged by god. I pray every time I strap on a gun that I will only have to fend off marauding cans and golf balls.

Every time I get in my car and look at the XD45 on the seat, I hope for an ursine jaywalker.
