The scenario makes it much easier to argue, that his perception of reality was distorted. IF there are conflicting stories, his will be less believed. So, if anything falls into the gray area, he's more likely in my mind to end up on the wrong end of it legally.... as his capacity and judgement could be questioned.
I don't drink, so I don't have that issue.

I'm not worried about having a few beers and shooting a home invader (threatening my life), but I'd be concerned about not being able to 'double tap' the heart, followed up by one to the skull. I might have to use an extra mag.
Don't break into my home...regardless of what I'm doing.

If you are a normal person, your thoughts about what the law is at that point is time is completely irrelevant.

I work very long hours at my employment, and receive very good eval's and raises. Also like to have a few when I get home to reflect and chat with my wife. If someone comes in on us I'm like a sow bear with cubs. My judgement is not impaired EVER. I will defend mine, period. And I repeat not judgement impaired. I have had an incident occur recently that I will share with you folks later.

Remember...you have the right to remain silent. That right pertains to both the BG and the victim. You have the right to not incriminate yourself by giving a statement. You have the right to an attorney BEFORE any questioning. The Miranda warning is clear "any statement can and will be used against you in court" it says nothing about a statement being used FOR you in court.. Be careful and do not fall prey to being talked into "doing the right thing" or being told "if you are innocent, you have nothing to worry about". Give a statement after only talking to YOUR attorney.

"Button your lip" and let the circumstances speak for themselves. Keep your statements short and direct. NEVER VOLUNTEER ANY INFORMATION! Speak ONLY after consulting your attorney.

I agree with 'dukalmighty'. I believe that any attack into your home is defensible.
Citizens are not expected to know when an attack may happen. Of course, some attorney would likely contend that you didn’t take reasonable measures to secure your home from forcible entry, so just hope you're not living in San Francisco if it happens.

The BAC laws in MN only apply to the permit to carry. The PTC is not required on your own property. So, it really comes down to whether it was a good shoot or not. This is pretty easy to satisfy in a home invasion situation.

All of which gets harder to ensure for yourself, if you're intoxicated and not quite in charge of your own faculties and judgment. Another point against, clearly.

at Home drinking?
Whatever you are doing in your own home does not negate your right to life, nor does it give the right to rob, rape or kill you or your family to evil people.

I would stab them instead. Keep in mind that my idea of "A wild night out" is a first beer.
