    BTW - ChezC3, you get a minus five for ignorance and bias.

    I voted 'No' because it shouldn't be national --- but I wouldn't recommend you try sneaking into my house. *devil's grin*
    So the 10th amendment means nothing to you.

    Just saying.

    I thought that almost all conservatives supported 'state's rights'.

    Looks like there are some exceptions.

    Generally, I support the idea that a person's home is their castle, etc. But I don't support shooting someone who is taking a short-cut with no evil intent, etc.

    Mo, you get minus 345,587,900,421,234,762,999.3 for giving me minus 5

    Normally, I would defer to the State, but as I had said, this is a right that in my opinion, and it should be everyone elses (hence the bias) that your right to defend you and yours does not fall under the purview of ANY governmental body or institution. It is a law I seek to make Federal that would remind the government of all levels that fact.

    If intruders are on my property without my permission their intent is of no concern to me, they are a dead regardless. That said my property is well marked and fenced, at least the parts were intruders will be killed without notice. I deliberately put my well marked barriers well within my property so as to leave NO doubt as to whose property it was and the consequences of violating the boundaries. If someone climbs a fence after reading or not a sign that says intruders will be shot until dead, they committed suicide as far as I am concerned. I welcome all visitors, though those that ring the bell and come to front door invited, get a better welcome than the rest.

    Until the law is overturned it's the law.

    Those who violate it do so at their own risk.

    Have a nice day.

    No, I didn't.

    You just made that up.

At worst they're going to steal some stuff, and likely you're insured for it. After all, the people breaking in may have guns too. And even if shooting someone in self defense is legal, it doesn't mean a jury will agree that it was self defense.

    Sometimes retreat, while it might hurt your pride, is the smarter decision.



    If your home is invaded by a dozen well-armed evil doers, your best option might be to get out of there ASAP, if possible.
