    No worries...I live on a small farm, have renters in a separate residence (but their carport is close by) and my blue heeler let's nothing go unnoticed. And I wish he would get used to them.

    My lab, OTOH, sleeps like a rock, altho he has a huge bark when he uses it.

    But thanks

It typically is that cut and dry, and it's that way on purpose. To protect the homeowner from criminal and civil liabilities for defending their "castle". Wish a certain rep in NC would get off her case and hear ours in committee.

    I understand CD quite well. It says that you CAN use deadly force to protect yourself in your home (& other). It doesnt say you MUST.

    I'm not going to kill someone for being 'somewhere they have no business being.'

    I can think of very very few reasons why a person would legitimately be in my home after dark without my invitation. And that is what I am prepared to deal with. However I am not identifying an intruder and then shooting them on autopilot. **Depending on the circumstances** I will not shoot someone visibly unarmed or running away just because the law allows it. I will remain aimed on target and remain prepared for actual, visible threat.

    If it costs me my life, so be it.
