This thread is to provide stories and lawful commentary regarding the use of lethal force to protect our homesteads. Americans have been using lethal force to protect their homestead since before the 13 colonies. This thread is for educational purposes only. Therefore, please only provide legal arguments for or against lethal force for protecting your homestead. If you provide clearly unlawful commentary:

Just remember; if you use a firearm, or any means of deadly force for that matter, to defend yourself or your property against an armed attacker/intruder be knowledgeable of and ready to deal with the possible legal consequences that exist in your particular state and community.
For example; if I whack an armed intruder here in Wyoming the legal consequences are going to be much different than if my brother does the same thing where he lives in Colorado.
So educate yourselves and look into legal coverage from an organization like USCCA, Legal Shield, etc., because as an attorney friend once told me, "The law best favors those who can best afford it."
Now back to our regularly scheduled program. :)

Or you could be in WA state like me. Concealed carry insurance is illegal, I cannot shoot someone over property, & if I do use legal deadly force. I’ll be civilly screwed at the very least. We have no castle doctrine or stand your ground laws here.

Your tax dollars at work; against you. Sounds like WA firearm owners need to get organized and start using their voting power.
It's amazing how much better politicians listen when their place at the tax payer funded feed trough is threatened.

Or worse, you could be living in NYS, where we are thoroughly out numbered by dictators.
NYS is a "duty to retreat" state, even when you`re trying to run away with 15 bullets in your back.

We go to 10 round magazines in July. Too many Cali transplants due to the Tech Industry here. Our Governor imo is a dangerous man to have power. He hasn’t even relinquished his emergency powers granted for Covid. He also likes wasting money running for President.

Like I said, WA firearm owners need to organize and use the power of their vote. Not as individuals but as a block of voters to take back their rights.

I would have to say this was justifiable in the video below. But in the state of NYS, you would have been arrested for protecting yourself.
Now, which brings a question to my mind, being that i live in NYS "duty to retreat"... i am disabled, i can`t retreat... so i`ll have to take my chances with the jury.

As far as i`m concerned, this homeowner in this video had every right to smoke every one of those parasites.

This is WRONG and INCCORECT information about NY magazines. We can NOT possess ANY magazine over 10 rounds...period.
"In some cases magazines that were bought before the law was put in place must be registered with the police"

This was interesting. This law firm is in Binghamton NY. It sheds some light on the differences between florida and ny with "stand your ground".

A similar event happened here in Wyoming several years ago. 5 armed guys broke into a home and 2 of them got dropped by the home owner with a 45acp pistol, one terminally. The other 3 beat feet most rikki tiki.
The home owner spent a night in jail but in the morning the district attorney ordered him released with no charges and had his pistol returned to him. One cop told the home owner, "nice shot placement".
The wounded perp cut a deal with the district attorney to drop a dime on his 3 amigos. He got a manslaughter charge and they got slammed with murder charges.

look it, it would be hard to live with because the human brain is trained to not kill, but that "POS" who brakes into your house at 3 am didnt go and tell jimbo and billybob he was going to your house and do what he tried to do. So if you happen to off the guy ask yourself this "who will actually miss this person" would one of their meth buddies call the poopoo and file a missing person?
