    Strongly suggest you read In The Gravest Extreme by Masad Ayoob.

    Read it a couple of times, come back with more questions.

    You might think declaration of bankruptcy would solve your problems. But there was a guy on the subway in NYC, that thought the same thing... He was wrong, too!

    If they die as a result of your shooting in self defense, then at least a key witness will not be able to testify.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Absent codified civil immunity for a justified shooting, the "victim" (the "victim's" spouse, parents, estate, etc.) can initiate a lawsuit against the shooter. However, successfully suing and collecting is quite another. The plaintiff, generally speaking, would have to prove that the injury/injuries (or death) happened and that they were caused by the shooter (1) negligently; or (2) intentionally; or (3) recklessly.

    More often than not, a justified shooting will not see the light of day in a court room provided the defendant employs competent counsel who can get the suit dismissed or, even better, gain summary judgment in his favor which, if not timely appealed or if the appeal is denied, causes the lawsuit to be terminated. From that point on, generally speaking, collateral estoppel attaches and the defendant will not have to re-litigate the issues he previously prevailed, even if there is a new plaintiff (to the same general set of facts).

    Finally, in many jurisdictions a person wrongfully sued (once the cause of action terminated in favor of the defendant) can sue for malicious prosecution or similar tort (can apply civilly) to go after the plaintiff (turn the tables, if you will). Often times the only way a defendant can recover his attorney fees is to sue for malicious prosecution since most jurisdictions follow "The American Rule" whereby each party bears the expenses of litigation regardless of which party prevails.

    Please note that I am not a lawyer and that the above is based upon my layman's understanding of the law and the issues. However, I have successfully sued a Fortune 100 company, a large regional home builder, and a bankruptcy petitioner (and prevailed or caused a settlement in my favor) as a pro se (representing myself) litigant. Nothing is more satisfying than beating attorneys in state and federal court.

    In Tx if you kill somebody in a legal SD shooting the family members can't even try to sue since there isn't a lawyer that will take a case he knows he can't win from the get go
