He should have been strung up by his entrails in the front yard....................did I say that out loud?

He was in the yard and not the house when he shot him though (bad for homeowner).

OTOH, "we were in a violent altercation and I feared for my life"

He made one key mistake. He didnt kill him. My CLEO and good friend tells me that if someone breaks in and I have to shoot........then to pull the trigger till the gun is empty so there is only one side to the story.

Hope the intruder wasn't one of our humble undocumented visitors from down south. If he was then the homeowner can save himself some trouble and just hand over the keys to his house.

Umm, bad idea? How bout shooting till he falls down... Emptying a gun into someone who's already on the deck is a bad legal proposition...

A good man with a gun could empty it before the BG hit the deck.

Shoot until there is no doubt that the threat does not exist.

Shoot only until they fall? Um, if they are still conscious and are still armed, I'm pretty sure they can still shoot back. I would not hesitate to shoot someone on the ground if my life was in danger.

In the "heat of the moment" you might just keep pulling the trigger until the pistol is empty...........
(after all, you MUST be in fear of your life to be shooting in the first place)

Not in these parts! Juries just eat up the "I feared for my life and I was running on adrenaline and I emptied two mags into the perp" defense.

Too bad the BG survived, but nice shooting anyway.

We had a 12 year old with a replica gun survive a three shot drill in Los Angeles the other day. I guess all that proves is, if you can't make the first one count, 2 more lousy shots ain't gonna do much better.

The bullets must have gone though him and docs were able to sew him up in time.
