If he was laying on the floor and had a gun, knife, or anything else that could be used as a weapon in his hands, I'd keep shooting until the threat was nuetralized. I just wouldn't shoot an unarmed man that is laying on the floor bleeding.

Shot while falling to the ground?

And?

Okay...you fire in self defense. You will probably fire more than one round. If you are forced to fire, your brain probably won't register the effect the first round had on the subject until AFTER round number two is already on the way.

Shot one: Subject is hit, or upon seeing the defender's weapon "flinches away" and tries to literally throw his body out of harm's way. This is a DOCUMENTED phenomenon, where a round fired at an attacker's chest has actually HIT him in the side or even in the back APPEARING to have been a shot delivered while in flight.

Shot two: Impacts the subject AFTER the subject has begun to flinch but was fired BEFORE the subject began to move, or was PERCEIVED to begin to move by the defender.

All in all...as long as the homeowner was being straight with his statement and DID NOT try to TAMPER WITH EVIDENCE...it should bear out in the investigation.

If Jason Voorhees is coming after me I'm going to empty the mag, reload, and repeat until I'm out of ammo. Then I'm going to beat him with the gun for a while.

Definitely a home invasion. We had a 17 year old punk take off all of his clothes, break into a home, tried to have sex with a 40+ year old woman and ran off when she woke up. The punk was ejaculating as he ran through the house to get away. Once he was outside, he started getting dressed but dropped his wallet on the ground. Cops found the wallet, arrested the punk and sent him away to prison. Between the wallet and DNA that he left behind, the case was pretty much open and shut. So I can see some sort of pervert stripping down before going into a home to attack somebody.

Have you ever heard of the castle act several of the southern states have it. You dont have to drag the body in. if you feel your self, your family, or your property is threatened you have the right to to defined your self, family, or property. Thank you hurricane Katrina. But you do have to have a permit to carry a hand gun now.

The "Castle Doctrine" comes from english common law, which states that "A man's home is his castle". A "castle" was actually the fortification around a potentate's home.

The "castle doctrine" in the US basically means you have no duty to retreat in your home, even if you can do so safely. In some states, this extends to ANYWHERE you have a legal right to be, in other words, you can stand your ground.

Somes states go so far as to say that you must try to escape from your OWN HOME before you can resort to ANY force.

Thank God, I live in Arizona....we and the Texans, and a few others got it right.
