This is obviously not something that happens to everyone every day in the U.S., but it does appear to be something that people invest a lot of psychic energy preparing themselves for (a home invader who I have to shoot dead before they kill me)? It must suck to live in that much fear.
I've noted a lot of talk on this thread about "rights and laws" and from the defenders of these absolutes, not much mention of any scale of morality... like for example, that taking a life when it is not absolutely necessary might be a little worse than somebody taking your TV. If it truly is a last resort and what a reasonable man would do, I'm okay with it. Let's call this what it is: a cold blooded vigilante with an itchy trigger finger.
You must share culpability in the same fashion as a man who falls off his bike with no gear, or the man who doesn't keep at least one fire extinguisher in his shop/kitchen to keep small accidental fires from spreading, or the man that contracts a 'social disease' because he refused to wear a condom and engaged in risky sex practices, or the man who fails to keep his valuables secure to prevent theft or even the temptation of theft to others, or the man that injures himself with his latest power tool because he failed to read the manual, or whatever abdication of responsibility one can think of. This is the problem with society today, we rely on others to do things for us that we should at least make an attempt to do for ourselves; it's easier to blame others instead. An ADULT does what is necessary within the laws of his locality to safeguard from harm himself and all the dependants he is responsible for. The blame most often lies with the one weakest enough to lay it.
Keep this firmly in mind; when seconds count, the police are only minutes away. The "lame" comment is uncalled for and does nothing to further an otherwise friendly discussion. .........James.
