To kill or not to kill.
 
If someone broke into your home and was unarmed what would you do.

Let's say the intruder wants to run away would you let him escape or fire on him

What will you do while your are in prison for shooting someone who is no longer posing a threat to you? Once the threat is gone you do not shoot...if you do you are now the aggressor and not the victim.

Not in Florida or any other state that has Castle Doctrine.

I live in Florida and could legally shoot them, but wouldn't. Killing someone is about the last thing I EVER wanna do, regardless of the situation. If it can be avoided, I will do whatever is necessary to avoid it.

If the intruder is moving away from me and out the door, then no.

I like my life too much to give it up just to teach a perp a lesson. I don't think I would do well in prison.

I agree I wouldn't kill a man u.less it was the only option

If the perp was in my home, it's lites out for him. No if's, and's or butts. As long as he is in my home he is a threat. NO one can tell me if I was in fear of my life. Bottom line is that he should have thought of the consequences before doing the deed.

Hooah to you bro I agree with that as well. So I guess in Texas I would kill a man because of my family to make sure they don't cone back but if they were running away I wouldn't Chase them down

If intruder is unarmed and you are in complete control (and you better be),
what will be done then can only be ascertained by the moment of decision.
To me anyone who breaks into my abode is probably armed. That person
would have to lie on the floor and don't move till the cops arrive otherwise
he would be shot where he stands.

I think your title and question reflect immaturity. This is also unbecoming of a responsible gun owner.



And any of you who believe a castle doctrine grants you a signed death warrant for Any individual in your home unwelcomed, perhaps you should research.

A castle doctrine allows you to stand and fight a threat, rather than attempt to flee. An unarmed individual, especially one who is retreating, poses no viable threat.

That's where murder begins and justifiable homicide ends.

Ask the Oklahoma pharmacist, Jerome Ersland. You'd have to visit him in prison though.
