    I've always wondered this. You hear all this bullshit about people getting sued because they shot a robber in their house, so when the fuck is it legal to put a cap in someone's ass?

    see... people make the mistake of not killing the intruder and just injuring them.

    Sure their family can sue you for wrongful death, but it's much harder for them to build a case out of their ass instead of the intruder suing you for injuring him.

    Depends on the state. In Florida, IIRC, the castle doctrine states that you can shoot anyone who has broken into you home. If they are on your property but not in the house you cannot shoot them unless they are threatening you with deadly force. You are allowed to kill anyone, anytime who is a credible threat of fatal violence as long as all options for a non-violent exit have been exhausted.

    In Michigan, you have to first try to flee before you can pop a clip in the robber's ass.

    jail. Attemted manslaughter most likely. At the very least you would be charged with aggrevated battary with a deadly weapon. What you do is yell, "Hey Motherfucker" and when he turns around pop 3 into center mass. When the cops come just tell them you walked out to your car and this guy lunged at you.

    You live in Texas, so if the whole incident happened on your property it is legal.

    oh yeah I live in Texas, and I would not wanna watch my car get fucked up. I fear it may happen soon. I have a gun but I would never ever want to shoot someone. if it was one guy I would just try to beat his ass. but if it was like 2 or more, I'm not sure what the fuck i'd do. I figure gun in one hand, cell phone in the other to the cops.

    i'd prob fire one off, then hope they stopped at gun point. if they did I may just take them in the house and pull some pulp fiction shit on em :naughty: just kidding but I would make em get on their fuckin knees till the cops arrived.

    I have never had to actually shoot at someone in my whole life. Simply pointing it at them has always gotten results for me.

    Personally I think you should be able to break out the gun whenever someone vandalize your property or threatens your bodily safety.
