    If you read our media described "Make My Day" law from 1983, basically it says if there is someone in your home that is not supposed to be there, and you feel ANY reason to be afraid, you can blast them. "Following them in" is in no way granting them entry.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    I can't see that case being made. Not in NC or any Castle Doctrine state. How would the LEO's or court (it wouldn't get that far) know you followed him in? He's dead, and are you ratting yourself out? Now I honestly don't think it matters at all if you followed him in or not, I'm just saying, when there's one survivor, the "facts of the case" are what that survivor says they are.

    If the physical evidence supports that. And there are no inconsistencies with what the survivor states. Most of the time it isn't as neatly packaged like that.
