Just kidding.

You mean hide it in your can......

That brings up a question from muse' post:

The many establishments that say no concealed weapons, what do you do with your weapon then? Return it to a car if you have one? I am serious, what do you do with them?

Default but

I have heard many times that the law to carry and use are so different that one needs to look at both. There is a law that even if someone breaks into your house and you shoot them, you need to prove that your life was in danger if you shoot them or you can be convicted. Silly and stupid but true.

AS I understand it you can shoot someone who is in the process of forcibly entering your home ( I think it's called the Castle ruling /defense). Having entered you have less authority unless they are threatening you or your family.
So, for e.g. , you hear billy the burglar downstairs and you find him about to exit you can't (officially) shoot him. If he picks a knife up and runs towards you - now thats ok in my book.

It would be pretty easy in a court of law to justify that you "felt you were in danger" if someone breaks into your house. I would dare say any court (at least in this area) would argue that you should not have felt in danger by someone breaking into your house. All you have to say is that you felt you/family felt in danger and that is why you used deadly force. They couldn't prove otherwise.

Return to your car and lock it up, uncover it (NC is an open carry state), or find another place to do business.

No problem. No question is dumb when you legitimately do not know the answer.

One fellow in Durham was home with a sick baby. Wife had car so home looked unoccupied.

Three no good piece of crap kids cut school and burglarized his garage to get into the house.

He shot them in the back as they tried to run like the rats they were. Their worthless parents wanted the homeowner crucified although the kids had serious juvie records.

Thank heaven this was in NC. Grand jury refused to indict.

Moral is - don't shoot 'em in the back.

Laws and what actually happen in court are much different. One day one person is convicted and the next one gets off free.

As far as when to shoot: Some states have equal force laws. One person brings a knife to a fight and the other can't bring a gun. And so on. If so the one with the gun is at fault.
