Why do you think Texas is any different than any other state?

Only the police (or other sworn peace officers) have the authority to gun down someone who is running away. Not you or me.

O3-Marine is quite correct.

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.
Scott is also correct. The choir is speaking. This is also what a jury of your peers would determine in their verdict.

"You must be the self entitled know it all huh. I have dealt with guys like you before, to say I am immature is an outright reflection of your opinion and is not justified from a common question I have heard all over the place. But you go ahead and try to put me down for asking this oh so common question. Your the one who is making things personal instead of staying on topic. So whatever you think is unbecoming I don't give a crap. I am a shooter always have been, always will be. I don't know about you but I have the back bone to kill in sight any armed threat on my property. If you don't then don't take it out on my forum. If you want to act like an adult and stop with the personal attacks anytime soon that would be nice. But I'm sure you will reply to this and freak out on me. Anyway I'm gonna stick to topic while you hate"


I think the question answered by Wilfully Armed could have been answered without the personal attack, IMO. However, looking past it I am thinking that 'Wilfully armed' was suggesting that its better to look at this scenario maturely, not from just sheer reaction in the heat of the situation. Shooting a man in the back will never go down well in any court of law. That was his point and he supports it with where justifiable homicide ends and murder begins. So, in moving one I am proposing that we look at the issue and deal with the issue, not the poster.

It's getting a little testy in here. Let's keep the discussion civil. What-ifs are always a great way to learn

Where I live, my classic Spanish rapier is enough to discourage anyone at the door from forcing their way in. Have you ever seen a Spanish or Mexican bull fight? It always ends with the matador skewering the bull, and this is the sword that is used. That's what would happen. There is something about 3 feet of shining sharp steel that gives would-be intruders and overly agressive door to door panhandlers pause.

Castle doctrine in my state if they are in your place of residents uninvited they are a threat. And until they are out the door they are at your mercy. My opinion I will not kill unless my life or my families life is in danger. Do you realize how hard blood is to clean up.

In Texas you can use any force to defend yourself or your property anywhere you are. I don't even have to be at home to legally shoot someone that's let's say trying to steal my car or in my yard showing hostile intent that's why the question was posed

If you really wanted to shoot someone you should have joined the Marines and put in for Iraq or Afghanistan.

Besides, if anyone invades your home in Texas its gonna be a half dozen heavily armed banditos, and you will be tied up before you can say where's my glock?
