Texas Gun Law and Scenerio
Hello all CC ers and OCers,
I have a question regarding Texas Gun Law along with a Scenerio. If a BG comes up to you while u are in your car and tries to steal your car, are you able to use deadly force to protect your property. When answering this question, please note the castle law. In Texas, your car is considered an extension of your home. With this in mind, is one allowed to use deadly force to stop the BG. If so, at what point in this scenerio would it become unlawaful. A sheriff in the valley told me that if a BG is trying to steal your car while you are in it, then deadly force is lawful, however; if the BG has already forced you out of your car and he is driving off, you cannot use deadly force (fire at him) when he is already on the road. Is this accurate information? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
