Me, personally, I would try to avoid shooting anybody......ever. I would only shoot if the BG kept coming at me. I would give him/her a chance or two to change their mind. But that is just my opinion.

I agree it's an absolute stupid law. Now get this, the lawyers I have consulted about this have also told me that if I do shoot someone in my home after they have broken in and they live.... They could sue me!! Is that messed up or what?

Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

the goblin family will sue you in illinoise even if the goblin trying to kill you and rape your 6 month old baby dies in the attempt.

wisconsin just passed a castle law that prevents law suits if the shoot was determined to be justifiable self defense.

If an intruder is armed I am shooting first. If the intruder is not armed, I might give a warning. If I can not determin if the intruder is armed, I will shoot and make sure he is armed when the police get there. Keep a weapon of some sort in the house that you have not touched bare handed and make sure his prints are all over it not just on the handle. Could even be a realistic toy gun that is all black.

JTJ not trying to be a buttface. But you probably shouldn't say that. If you ever did have to defend your home prosecutors could use that post against you.

Not trying to be mean...just trying to look out for ya.

NO way on God's green earth would I do something like that. That is trouble with a capital T.

I'm lake county il, if they are in my home uninvited, my gun will be pointed at them. 1st warning that I'm not f******* around. One command only get down on the ground. Doesn't listen to that. Im asuming he has a intent to harm my family. Resulting in one shot bad guy. I'm not going to waist my time dialing 911. If ever in that situation never fire a warning shot. The odds of using your hd gun is in the favor of never shooting it. there is a lot to home defense, and it will greatly minimize the chances of a forced entry or if the bg will even stick around after a first attempt of trying to enter your house.

Are you stupid? Why the hell would you post that on the internet? Not to mention making a decision like that is just asking for trouble.
