    Then do what you feel you need to. Most people are weaker and so I'd advise that their prime objective is to force the intruder to leave (empty handed)

    It depends on the situation. There's no telling what the intruder will do after he leaves.

    What Rich2018 fails to realize is a weapon (firearm) is more than an equalizer and generally turns the table in favor of the one holding the weapon. Doesn't matter if the suspect is high or not.

    Who cares as long as they're not in/on your property.

    And be sure to report the incident to the police ASAP.

    You've never had to secure a suspect for a protracted period of time have you ?

    Don't try to arrest/detain/hold the intruder.....make them leave ASAP

    That is your prime objective.


    You're just full of bar talk, if indeed you're old enough to enter a bar.

    Yep. Who cares about the neighbor's children.

    Sorry, how did we get from an intruder to your house to a threat to your neighbors children ?

    Because sometimes when suspects flee, they might hide in other houses.

    What you said about arrest/detain is your prime objective. Not everyone will agree with you and have that as the prime objective.

    Your last comment is trying to provoke a response. I have been able to legally go to bars for over 50 years. How about you?

    OK, but highly unlikely


    A court wouldn't grant you leave to kill a subdued intruder on that basis....

    "I couldn't let him go because he might have raped my neighbors daughters"


    Please get real and re-enter the real world. If you disturb/discover and intruder in/on your property, your prime objective is to make them leave.
