Unless you live in a red state with "Castle Doctrine" law, you will
find yourself a victim of the legal system no matter what you do if it involves a firearm. The question you have to ask yourself is "Do I want to also face a civil trial after the criminal trial?" Too many people who felt like you found themselves financially and emotionally destitute after long drawn-out civil trials that were decided in favor of the "criminal" . Dead men can't sue!
