lesson is, just put em out of their misery. if you leave them alive and injur them, it WILL come back to bite you in the bum.
Perhaps if you bothered to read my earlier post on how she is protected under the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code, you'd realize how erroneous your comments are.

Once again...

83.001. AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE A defendant who uses force or deadly force that is justified under Chapter 9, Penal Code, is immune from civil liability for personal injury or death that results from the defendant's use of force or deadly force, as applicable.
Secondly, your opinion that once you cross your property line it becomes "assault" is also without basis. Read Chapter 9 of the Penal Code that states when and where a person can defend themselves (it's under Section, 9, Self Defense). There's no such restriction in the legal code, in a nutshell it states "a person is justified in using force against another when and to the degree the actor reasonably believes the force is immediately necessary to protect the actor against the other's use or attempted use of unlawful force." Nowhere does it limit that right to one's property.

Lastly, bolding comments doesn't make them correct, backing them up with legal reference does!

Cheers! M2

This guy is all about the anecdotal experience. Dead guy on the couch would suck. That is where I watch TV and then I'd have to buy a new one. That is even more of a hassle.

Yeah, I've often thought about what my shottie (and what it's loaded with) would do to my leather couch if some idiot was dumb enough to try and hide behind it; but I figure I can always get a new couch!

It's difficult to clean up the blood from the carpet and the walls. Of course, I am speaking from experience.
