    Everyone is welcome to their own opinion and I hope mine hasn't come across badly, because I do understand where you're coming from - I just don't agree.
    No problem. And I 100% agree with this ^^^. Which the OP has since clarified.

    About the 'legal' in TX part....I'm aware of this. It still wouldnt change my actions. I still wouldnt shoot unless *I* determined my life was in danger, legal or not. But that's just my position on it.

    As a single woman living in a rural area...I have thought my position out pretty carefully. I have renters on my property (different residence). I have deaf teenagers next property over....who party and have bonfires. My renters also carry. They also have a key to my house. They know to identify themselves in an emergency.

    I will retreat to my safe room (bedroom) where my firearm is and if anyone gets that far and enters, the likelihood that they are not a lethal threat is almost nil...but I will still visually ID them.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
