Well that may or may not be an acceptable deterrent. But I agree that no burgler is going to attempt to b&e a place with anything making a lot of racket. But I've been around a lot of annoying little ankle-biters that bark their fool heads off at a stiff breeze and neighbors get used to that "yap-yap-yap" and tend to tune it out. I personally don't like small breed dogs like Chihuahua's, Shi-Tsu's, Yorkies etc. specifically for their obsessive need to advertise how tough they think they are to everyone. Big dogs know that they are big and tough and typically (if trained) only bark loudly when there is something really threatening going on that they want you to know about.

Any dog, large or small, can, and should, be trained when to bark and when not to.

Understood. Yet another factor is where you are located when the shooting happens. It shouldn't matter, but it does. For example, if you are located in a state that is very unfriendly to firearm owners to begin with, like Illinois, or California. You will be much more scrutinized by the "system", than if the same exact shooting occurred the same exact way in a friendlier state like Arizona or Texas. People there pride themselves on their gun rights. Politics has a way of entering into everything. Especially these days with a nation that is so divided. The Zimmerman / Martin shooting proved this.

how many attorney's 24/7 numbers do you have on speed dial?

Better have more than one, and you should have made prior contact.

They had a hand in getting such laws enacted, and one would expect them to know the laws inside and out.

the only way to learn IS to ask questions.

with that said, i hate to be a devil's advocate, but this kinda thing could be construed to be "premeditation" by some slick, dirtbag civil lawyer.

"Ignorance of the law is no excuse", how many times have we heard that? I probably would have agreed with it about 30 years and 2000 new laws ago but not today.

The fact is its about the best excuse based on facts most of us can really come up with and its not because we are dumb, its because we have better things to do than study the law day in and out like a Legal Clerk.

For every law we are aware of, there are 100 we dont have a clue about including Lobster protocols and our right to self defense. RepubliCrats write and sign laws daily with the express intentions of being recognized for an accomplishment not necessarily fixing any particular injustice. They all want to be remembered like the original scriptors of our Constitution, with reverence and respect. Once a law hits the books, its there for all coming generations even if it doesnt fit or do spit for anyone. Buggy whip laws 100 years outdated are still being used to prosecute rocket-ship crimes!

Its time to stop the madness, our elected leaders need to stop with the creationism style of lawmaking. The Constitution needs very few supporting or defining sub documents to be effective. Take their pens, Dictaphones and scribes away and tell them to work with what they have! Before any new law hits the books, they should be required to remove 4 old ones first! In 2 or 3 generations, ignorance of the law will again be no excuse instead of being a perfect one like it is today.
