But what's not clear is what someone's intentions are when they break into your house. You aren't going to know if that home intruder is armed or not. Any home invader is a potential threat. But it's clear we're going to have to agree to disagree because nothing is being accomplished in this argument.

Law is clear, read it, or at the very least read the whole article again.

I know what happened in the article. But not every home invasion is the same. My point is a person should be allowed to defend themselves and their property and I think the law should be changed so that it is legal to defend your own property as well.

Of course, a person should also be responsible for the actions they take.

This law has been on the books for a long time, and thieves are not going around killing people. They are going around stealing shit.

Law works.
