    Um, Officer McLachlan, how about defense of life? I think property is secondary here. The man was obviously there with malice aforethought.

    Absolutely spot-on, A+ self-defense case.

    But it would be nice of the officer to say that you have the right to defend your life too

    Agreed. I REALLY dont think the soon-to-be Ex was there to steal the guys tv or vcr. It's pretty clear his plan was to try to murder the guy and/or the woman.

    all that aside, based on the ifo, it sounds like a legit SD shooting to me.

    Well gee whiz, Breaking & Entering with 2 handguns in hand.

    This is an interesting case of actual stopping power. Guy was successful with his Shotgun but the intruder was still able to vacate the area and get to his vehicle. This shows once again that you should shoot until the threat is eliminated and you can't bring enough gun to a fight. Clearly Self-Defense.

    Maybe he shouldn't have been trying to shoot both pistols at once while flying through the air...

    One might infer that the intruder assumed that the homeowner was unarmed by both his method of entry and his swift retreat once "informed".

    Chalk one up for concealed carry, gun ownership, and legal home defense.

    Remove one point from Chicago, NYC, and D.C. ideology.

    Who has the official tally again? :)

    Why is the home owner sbject for investigation by the AG? The intruder (Mr Hunter) had two hand guns, broke into the house via sliding glass door, after 9 PM: I suppose he was just there to talk and congradulate his ex?

    Why should the home owner retreat? He is well within his rights. :fire:

    The investigation probably relates to the potential for exchanged threats between the two men... the news reports above both mention previous exchanges between the two which may have contributed to the breaking and entering.

    (AKA you're not totally innocent if you shoot someone who's breaking into your house if you told them you're going to shoot them next time you see them a half hour before the incident, et cetera.)
