My wife laughed her a$$ off when she heard him say that.

Good forvthe homeowner. I have never been one to wish someone dead but I'd much rather see the homeowner safe and the bad ght dead than the other way around.

The homeowner has more restraint than I do though. I am not one to pull a gun and wound w a leg **** (I don't think I would be anyway). I believe I'd be shooting center mass off the bat...

As far as sensationalizing the removal of some of life's vermin, you just can't generate as much compassion for them as you can for puppies & kids.

Center mass and continue to shoot until the threat is eliminated. Trying "just" to wound somebody is a good way to get yourself killed.

So, I wonder, was the guy armed? If not, it's still considered justified? (Not that I think he shouldn't have been shot either way, mind you.)

Why does it seem that sometimes, it's "OK you're cool, carry on.", and other times, the defender gets hauled off to jail, and has legal troubles, ect., when both events seem to be justified? There should be a better guideline for this.......

I don't care if you are armed or not. I presume anyone entering my home uninvited is armed and means me harm. This is how FL Castle Doctrine works and I agree with it. As far as I'm concerned, you give up ALL your rights when you break in someone else's home.

He didn't break into, she opened the door. I'm not defending him, mind you. I am just wondering if he was armed, and how that would/could maybe change things if you shot him........
I agree with the above, but what you or I think doesn't mean crap, it's what the cops or the judge thinks.

While I will concede that the attacker did not technically break in, it was an intrusion. Whether or not he was armed is irrelevant. Castle doctrine allows for defense when one has a reasonable fear of eminent peril.

Check the laws of your state. Some have castle doctrine, some require you to try to escape, even to the point of running away from your home, and only shoot if all other options are exhausted.
