.....could you kill them? I'm not talking legalities here. In Texas, it's perfectly legal to shoot and KILL someone that breaks into your house, and it's also perfectly legal (according to my cop neighbor) to shoot and kill someone that's breaking into your car, as long as it's AT NIGHT. For me...YES! If someone broke into my house, I would not hesitate to shoot and kill them. Why? My home is my sanctuary, and I should always feel safe there. I'm not a gun-toting crazy, but as soon as I become a home-owner, I will buy a gun. It amazes me that there are places where I would go to jail for murder for protecting my home. So my question to the fellow Zoners. Could you actually shoot and kill someone that broke into your home?
