Hey guys. Really happy with this forum and the replies I have gotten and tips! Recently I have been studying NRA gun articles about how people defend themselves and I have a few questions. But first a scenario (please in no way think I am trying to "glorify" home defense. I know things go wrong and it takes a lot, I am simply interested in learning the legal replications) Jack is sleeping in his small ranch house, with a few neighbors around the area. Jack has no felonies, no DUI's or anything on his record, maybe a few speeding tickets here and there. Jack goes to bed and a few hours later, someone breaks into the house. Jack then is prompted to grab his shotgun (OO BUCK, 12 GA). Jack confronts the suspect only to find that he is armed with a tactical knife. Jack yells at the man to halt while he calls the police (calling the police is a MUST because it keeps the question of if you meant to kill the aggressor or not.) With 911 dialed, the aggressor now starts coming at Jack. ordering the aggressor to halt, Jack is running out of distance between him and the aggressor. Jack then fires at the aggressor, fatally stopping him. With 911 on the line, Jack tells them the situation that he thinks the man is dead. Jack secures the area, making sure there are no other aggressors around. What happens in the days to come? Is your gun taken away from you as evidence after a situation like this? This will give me help in the legal side of being a RESPONSIBLE gun owner. The law is in favor of criminals. Thanks all.
