The so called OK "make my day law" dates from 1987. It came about after a Tulsa dentist killed a home invader. An ambulance chasing Tulsa lawyer contacted the family of the late scumbag and sued in civil court. This lawsuit really PO'd OK legislators who passed the so called "make my day" act. The governor signed it into law.

For many years i have followed home invasion shootings very closely in OK. i have never heard of a person who wounded or killed a home invader being held by police.

There are unconfirmed reports that deputies bought this lady a new self defense shotgun:

From Title 21. 1289.25 OK Code:

Quote:
F. A person who uses force, as permitted pursuant to the provisions of subsections B and D of this section, is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force. As used in this subsection, the term “criminal prosecution” includes charging or prosecuting the defendant.

G. A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force, but the law enforcement agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.

Put your ego aside if you shoot a home invader. Tell the LEO you were afraid for your life and your family's and you just wanted to stop the threat.
I have two small dogs, they do not yap incessantly but does let us know if someone or something is outside. A delivery man once remarked as my dogs were at the front door barking that they weren't much for watchdogs. I replied they let me know you were here, and I can handle it from there.

As to how Congresscritters should know their laws inside and out...

Remember, a barrel shroud is "that shoulder thing that goes up".

Not surprised. A little while back I was scanning the news after the Batman shootings, and this fat reporter on CNN was saying something along the lines of him using a machine gun, and blah blah ban guns so nobody can get them blah blah. Liberal media and politicians have no gun sense whatsoever.

I wonder if we could give them some clues to how to Identify WTF they are talking about cause they are clueless! Maybe we could liken guns to paths and roads. A single shot weapon is a hiking trail, a Semi Auto is like an improved paved road, a Light machine gun is like a 4 lane, a heavy one is more like an 8 lane highway! Maybe then they could understand, after all, they have all seen roads before!

They can redefine anything they choose, Marriage, Life, Death and what constitutes a human! Evan an idiot could tell you anything can be an Assault Weapon! A Baseball shoved down someones throat certainly is an assault, the baseball is a weapon when used in that manner, so is a law that denies us our rights.

We do actually live and die based upon definitions created by republi-crats. I feel more comfortable with Websters myself!

In OK the family of the late perp may not sue in home invasion cases where the prosecutor has ruled self defense or the jury has no billed the case. In the 25 years since "stand your ground" went into effect no one has collected on behalf of their late home invader relative.

In OK the prosecutor is not required to take a self defense case to a grand jury. In cases where the prosecutor declines charges, the family of the late perp can collect signatures on a petition for a grand jury hearing. Thats right, no one will sign a petition on behalf of a home invading perp.

alsaqr,

I'd like to see a link, or a photo of that case, considering the .308's ability to penetrate.
