    Hi from Thieveland, Ohydro

    Whats up everyone...Ohio here. My current weapon of choice is an XD-45 tactical. My backup is a S&W .38 special airweight. I love the XD

    I have a question regarding home invasions: Are you in trouble if you kill an unarmed home invader? I hear so many different "facts" from different people regarding this, and just wondered how it works. Is it different state-by-state?

    Personally, I don't want to wait to find out if someone is armed, and believe that the minute someone crosses into your threshold, it's life or death.

    Thanks

    hey fellow Springfieldian! welcome from NE! I'm not sure about your question, I'm not sure I know of many courts that would convict you, but you might have better luck posting in a different section, try Issues and Discussions maybe? Just an observation

    Welcome to the forum.

    The short answer to your question is that the laws vary from state to state.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    With regard to my state, Colorado, a short answer can be found in Wikipedia if you search for "Make My Day Law".

    Welcome
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
