The intruder made the decision to break into someone’s home. If they get shot... they did it to themselves
So you're saying that because someone came into your house without permission, no other information available, it's okay to take their life?
Do you think those people are coming in for my benefit? They made that decision
It sounds like you just don’t want to make criminals accountable
Criminals are accountable for breaking and entering, and occasionally theft. Their accountability is held through the courts and correctional system. You sound like you don't want to hold senseless murderers accountable.
You must be a liberal
I think I usually fall under a moderate conservative.
If you want to throw around ideologies then you must be an anarchist.
No I’m a conservative who believes in being able to protect my home.
You're a conservative who doesn't respect life or the basic institutions of government?
And you’re a bleeding heart liberal that believes in letting criminals get away
I believe the liberal viewpoint on this topic involves never using deadly force and just hiding until the police arrive.
Spoken just like a true liberal coward. I’m glad you’re not the protector of my daughter. You’re a yellow pacifist. I’ll bet challenged to a playground fight you’d never even show up. Your type makes me vomit.
I find it really interesting that you fling insults rather than talking about the issues. Let's say this daughter you want to protect chased her dog that ran into someone's open front door. By your logic and the logic of the poster, it'd be okay for the homeowner to shoot both your daughter and her dog even though it was a harmless issue, she never posed a threat, and she was trying to leave.
Someone breaking into your home or being in there when you arrive home is completely different than someone chasing a dog into some ones home and you know it yellow belly. America is the home of the brave. You don’t live up to this standard.
So how do you differentiate between the two? You come out of your bedroom and some random woman comes running through your front door. Seems to be fair game according to Rissyanne.
She has a dog not my tv
She could have your jewelry, meds, silverware, rainy day fund, you can't see what's in her pockets. On top of that, in Rissyanne's viewpoint the moment they step in your door "If they get shot... they did it to themselves".
In my state shed have that right and if she did have my possessions in her pockets then the shooting was justified otherwise it’s just an accident. She should’ve knocked first
"Virginia's self defense laws provide that a non-aggressor is justified in using force against another person if he reasonably believes that the force is necessary to protect himself from imminent use of unlawful force by the other person."This case law is the closest thing to a castle law that Virginia has. We also have a stand your ground law.
My state is the reddest state in the country and no jury in my state would convict a shooter for shooting someone breaking in their front door for any reason
Wyoming, I think?
Oklahoma the buckle on the Bible Belt
I can definitely see the sentiment. Virginia is the northiest state in the south and the southiest state in the north, lol. We have an almost artificial separation above and below Richmond. Best and worst of both worlds.
@Rissyanne is a deep southerner also from a very red state
I was brought up on southern pride, honor, and culture along with northern education and empathy. It's a weird mix.
The problem with your assertion is that if you wound someone in your home, they can and have successfully sued the homeowner. As there is no immunity from that suit you are much less liable if you kill the intruder. Further the US supreme court has ruled that it is not the job of police to protect an individual in their own home, the burden of home defense lies directly on the shoulders of the people who live there.
@Anpu23 this is funny. It used to be a tongue in cheek joke that if you shot someone and they landed outside your door to be sure and drag them in your home so you could prove they were in when you shot them so you couldn’t get prosecuted. Another saying is dead men tell no lies
Bottom line... the intruder made the decision to put his life on the line. And a northern education doesn’t make you any smarter.
Northern education is more scientific, less religious. That's the primary difference from what I can tell.
The northern schools teach crazy ass classes like lesbian dance theory. And they instill liberal bull shit like white milk is racist
I have never once seen a lesbian dance theory class or heard a complaint about milk's color. The schools here pose a question and encourage you to think independently and critically. There is almost no indoctrination aside from patriotism.
Are you kidding. There is total indoctrination. Liberal professors are insane. I see it in the news all the time.
You are total proof of liberal indoctrination
Sure, some tenured professors spout personal opinions and often say stupid things, but I don't see what that has to do with me.
Because you are defending them.
I agree with that. But if someone breaks into your home you have the right to defend your home. They made that choice
Definitely. The homeowner has no idea what you're going to do to them.
Hope you feel better.
Feeling a lot better thanks
I am glad, girl!

But they have the right to break in my home... you must be a liberal
I'm not an American, we have very different views on guns in Finland. And no, no one has the right to invade someone's home. It's a felony and will always be punished.
If they break into my home they will get punished
Become a student of a martial art.A firearm is not necessary to kill.Firearms just make it easier.I prefer to kill as quietly as possible, in case he/she has accomplices who I have not seen.I would prefer my presence and intent to be a surprise to them, too.
@cth96190 I did all of the above , except for killing the scrote !! Used techniques from boxing and Lethwei / Muay Thai
A warning is to surrender a tactical advantage = you die.The bastards are not there with your welfare in mind. Kill them.
So you would just let someone come in and rob you?
No I have a meat cleaver on a magnetic strip next to the door. And another one in the top drawer of my bedside table.We use knives for that in England.
I thought they were going to ban knives
Not in the house 😂 how would we cook dinner?
