lol You ain't got a clue about the laws in TEXAS
Johnitis is quoting laws from commiefornia
I am a retired LEO and would NEVER encourage anyone to shoot at an unidentified target, in the dark. I don't think anyone I worked with over 24 years would say any different.
Did it sound like I encouraged him to you ??? I said he did the best he could at the time.. You don't know me ..
Maybe it's just gun rights vs common sense?
this is the law in the state of TEXAS >>>>>
A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:
(1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.41; and
(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:
(A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or
(B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the property; and
(3) he reasonably believes that:
(A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or
(B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.
