Interestingly, here in NC we still have the pre-castle doctrine law that says you may shoot to PREVENT the unlawful entry. The castle doctrine also covers the home and (I believe this is the term) curtilage which means the immediately surrounding property and out buildings. It was meant to cover things like a detached garage or shed.

Once the threat has been recognized and evaluated as meeting the criteria for action, that moment is the END of my "self defense". I am then immediately going on the OFFENSE until the threat no longer remains. You can never win a fistfight by merely blocking your opponents punches. You can't win a gunfight by locking the front door. Self defense is being awake & aware. Self offense, contrastingly, then saves your life.

Yeah, I've seen this one, there's more to it, IMO.
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

Too bad he didn't get more shots on targets.

A home invasion is very likely to be quick and violent. Assuming the door/window isn't immediately breached, then the moment I became certain that violent entry was occurring, I'd say that would be the moment when the euphemism "pre-emptive" would no longer apply. After that point, it's basically "open season" on violent felons coming at me.
Sure, there's neighboring people to be concerned with. But that's true whether the BG is on this side or that side of two sheets of drywall. And, sure, there's the statutes and the DA/GJ to be aware of. But while I certainly will attempt to take into consideration those elements, my first concern is with surviving the situation. And if that happens to involve taking out a known BG despite the fact he's currently on the opposite side of a sheet of glass or drywall, then so be it.

From the moment you identify four bad guys attacking you with a mix of long guns and pistols you SHOULD feel afraid for your life and react accordingly. Anyone who sees this coming at them and isn't afraid has a screw loose.
I would have liked to see a few more BGs get hit though.
