    It would be trouble for sure...tempting but trouble for sure, of course unless the car is headed towards you. It’s not in the house so there is gray area even with the right to protect property.

    The big "bad" out here isn't so much the law (it is an issue though)...it's dealing with retaliation by the "he was a good boy's" family and gang.

    Carrying around the house has just become more the norm unfortunately. I do remember not locking doors or leaving them open at night, and I’m not that old. I still leave the bedroom door open at night for fresh air. The five dogs will let me know if something is too close.

    If your front door is SMASHED in at 7:40 pm...how many seconds would you have to reach your home stash weapon?

    Answer: 1.7 seconds...cause it's on my hip...always.

    You are probably right, but there is an element of shooting a fleeing felon, and to prevent another incident. That would not be enough to avoid prosecution probably.

    However, if it did happen to me, I would be willing to be prosecuted to protect my family. Fortunately it is very unlikely in my neighborhood and even if it did there would probably be no chance of even seeing the fleeing car.

    Anyway so be it.

    Yup. If I have pants on, I have a gun on.

    And I'm never far from a long gun or two when I'm at home.
