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.

"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
They are left in full possession of them."

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
"Wear a gun to someone else's house, you're saying, 'I'll defend this home as if it were my own.' When your guests see you carry a weapon, you're telling them, 'I'll defend you as if you were my own family"

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.

When you accept mediocrity you sow the seeds for future failure.
One should never confuse good fortune with good training.

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.
