For the purpose of this thread, I'd like to avoid the politics of this issue. My biggest issue is safety of me & mine. I worry about this because of the potential for loss of life and the deep legal hole that one could be dropped into should you shoot before the LE identify themselves. Theoretically, in some locations, one could shoot through the door legally. Maybe not the best of ideas, but theoretically not illegal. I don't understand how this sort of thing continues to happen. Seems to me that one of the first things one should do before kicking in a door, would be to verify the correct address. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/01/31/fbi-uses-chainsaw-in-raid-on-wrong-fitchburg-apartment/ Thoughts?
