First off, I hope I am never in a situation where I have to choose my life over someone else's, but I WILL choose mine in a heartbeat. Having said that.....fast fwd WARNING, IF YOU LIVE IN TEXAS, THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU ROB SOMEONE, YOU JUST MAY GET SHOT, AND RIGHTFULLY SO! I suspose texas is a bit more aggressive when it comes to defending themselves or property. Guess most of you have heard in the media of the Guy in Texas who shot and killed two people trying to rip off his neighbors home, After being told over and over again by 911 with whom he was talking to at the time NOT TO GO OUTSIDE, but he did and we know the rest. The question is why is it so hard to come to the conclusion that if someone is in the process of breaking into your home or property, or neighbors, they have given up their rights to leave unharmed, and you have every right to protect yourself and familey, property, etc... As a matter of fact, it has been seen over and over again that if they are armed, they will do you first! Also I know the "DUTY TO FLEE" law varies from state to state, but what I did not know, is that where it is applied, in some cases, you the homeowner have a duty to flee in YOUR OWN HOME, before using deadly force against an attacker, so you don't shoot the Milk Man by mistake if he decides to deliver to your home in the middle of the night, forcing his way in just to get to the fridge. I guess that puts a bullet hole in the Castle law, or maybe I am just not getting it. Why does the chump who has decided to violate my space by force, wheather it be the home, or on the street, with the intent of harm get the benefit of me or you having to flee before we can protect our own self. This makes no since to me at all. You can have a conceal and carry, but you have to Flee before you use it if your life is threatend first. In some cases even in your own home?? I keep hearing over and over about how much safer we would be if responsible people were allowed to carry and others knew you were packing, how this would detour the common punk and make him think twice. I am actually (being a very peacful kind of guy) starting to believe it.
