    ........."You don't have to negotiate with a burglar. And you're under absolutely no duty to run in your own home."

    Sisti represented Moultonborough farmer Ward Bird, whose sentence was commuted in early 2012 following a conviction for threatening with a deadly weapon. Asked whether he himself owns a firearm, Sisti said, "I think just about everybody in the state of New Hampshire does. It's a common thing."

    .........She said she has defended "innocent" people who are asked by police why they were in a certain place or acted the way did, rather than focusing on the person who broke into the house to begin with. She likened today's use of home defense laws to how rape victims decades ago "were asked why they were walking in a certain area or dressed a certain way. They're blaming the victim instead of blaming the criminal who attacked the victim."

    It still seems like it will never be clear for us in NH. Forget lawyers everyone in the state agrees, but the law doesnt clearly have our backs

    It's all well and good that attorneys are voicing their opinions. Trouble is, it's the statutes and the DA's who hold citizens' feet to the fire with respect to interpretations. Unless the statutes in the state are bulletproof and clear with respect to justification for use of force, there's going to be such interpretations occurring. Of course, this is where SYG came from, the idea of largely avoiding having to justify why a person has every right in the world to be where he is, to avoid being a victim, etc.
