Home Invasion Qoute from In Gravest Extreme
Since this has been discussed lately and I see lot of home invasions being talked about lately this Qoute really got my attn and i was surprised by it
"If you ascertained that the man you have the drop on is a deliberate intruder into your occupied home (and therefore by definition a deranged or vicious enemy) if you are certain that he has a weapon in or at hand; if you and he are in positions where he can shoot or stab you ----
Shoot him. In the back if you have to. And keep shooting him untill he is unable to shoot back"
Of course i always head this is a no no and go to jail card for shooting someone in the back maybe urban myth becuse if its a justified shoot then its a good shoot front back or side supposedly..
What do you Guys and Gal think? :smilygifs
I Don't Think Ayoob Walks On Water
I think Mas Ayoob is a genius at self promotion. I would NEVER take this advice, even if good ol Mas himself offered to come be an "expert witness" in my defense for free. (FAT CHANCE!) In most jurisdictions that are "urban" or suburban this is a virtual lock for criminal and civil charges.

I still doubt that it will allow for backshooting!
Ayoob Is A Legend In His Own Mind
Regardless of what any State's laws provide, shooting someone in the back, then pleading self-defense, is a real stretch.
Case in point: A couple of years ago, a homeowner in Missoula saw a teenager appearing to be attempting to break into his car parked in his driveway. The homeowner confronted the kid with his .357 revolver, the kid turned away to run & the homeowner shot him in the back of the head from about 6 feet. The homeowner claimed self-defense at trial. He's serving 20 to life now.
I know we're talking about in the home shooting scenarios here, but I think the analogy is appropriate.
