Key word to me is "need". Dang right, if the need comes to ya, use it!!!

The law says you have the right to defend yourself.

You can defend your pets from other animals with deadly force. Inside the house, you could be in fear of you life if someone is trying to kill your pet. After all if they are in your home with a weapon trying to execute Fido, they have violent intentions for your family.

Could your pets use deadly force?
This was thrown in to lighten up the mood!

so your statement doesn't cover every city and state in the US does it? please state facts about such things in the future. such statements sound lacking of any true knowledge of the subject at hand when such statements are not completely true.

Actually I have had several dogs that I had to have a rider on my insurance policy to cover any damage they might do. So, yes, a pet can use deadly force. A rottweiler, pit bull and many other large breeds are considered dangerous animals.

Since this is text forum, no one can see facial expressions. Exactly how are we supposed to know his post was a joke?

Actually yes. My buddies house got broken into and his neighbor saw it happen. He has a dog that is highly trained and even has a "kill" command. He asked the cops if he could have unleashed the dog on them. The cops said yes. He is defending his neighbors property. The dog at that moment is just a weapon with a nasty bite. Now this may not be lawful but in a small town it is.

Castle laws should be in every state. How is it your home if you can't defend it or you go to jail for defending it?

There is a really good Dr. King quote that sums this and it basically says this but with some big words that make me think for a second.

To hell with the law...

We were given the gift of life from God, we have not only the 'right' but the OBLIGATION to protect that gift by ANY means necessary...
