Right, but in many US states it's not illegal to kill someone who trespasses on your property.
The guy was banging on this woman's door and she ran upstairs, then he bust the door with a crowbaw. I don't think she had much time to think about which weapon to use; nor would you.
If it was me, I'd grab the closest thing, whether that be a knife, baseball bat, golf club, or whatever. It wouldn't be a gun because I don't own one.
When you and your family is threatened you wouldn't have time to think about the consequences like you do when you're sat discussing it on a forum.
Exactly, you dont mess with a family and you dont break into someones house.You do then you get whats coming to you.
