I notice the option of gunning them down as soon as they enter isnt on this list. I have 0 mercy for people who steal from others.

I would, I wouldn't know they're unarmed and I wouldn't let them get close enough to find out.


Jeez the shoot first ask questions later mentality is real with Americans

I'd go into the kitchen and get a massive knife and threaten them with it, if thinks went to far i'd stab them in the leg/arm.

I'm all for people defending themselves when they feel they are in danger,
and having someone break into your home, especially when you are home
alone is a time when I can't blame someone for arming them self with a gun.

However, I... really dislike the attitude that a person should die just
for being a thief.

The only time killing is acceptable is when it is necessary to
defend oneself or others. Even then, it still qualifies as a necessary evil,
rather than righteous judgement in my eyes.

Just my two cents.

I have many swords in my room so, yeah, if knocking them out means making them bleed out, yes. My weapons are inferior to guns.

The problem is immediate while police are 15 minutes away. It is better to act.

I was wondering why there wasn't a "give him a shotgun blast to the face and paint the walls red" option but then I realized the OP was from NY.


Call the cops? Yeah sure, but what about the next 15+ minutes until they show up...

Exactly defend yourself as needed but don't do more then you need to.

In my country if you killed an unarmed robber it would be classed as excessive self defense of course it varies depending on the situation but basically just because one is a thief doesn't mean they deserve death.

Its sad but some people are forced to go into robbing because they have a family to feed people just like to shoot to kill.

Arming yourself and killing in self defense is one thing but shooting an unarmed man and going shoot first ask questions later is disgusting imo

defend yourself with a gun or hide shoot if necessary but don't just shoot the robber because he is in your house because then you will be the one in the wrong only kill if its your last option.

Now, I'm afraid I can't entirely agree with you on that front.

While I would avoid an altercation if at all possible,
let's assume, for whatever reason, the intruder decided to attack me.

Someone who is unarmed is still very capable of killing me.
I believe I should have the right to defend myself in whatever fashion is
necessary.

I choose not to own a gun, as I do not wish to bear the
responsibility of owning one. but I would not blame someone for
shooting someone who truly meant them harm.

No, don't come in my house without my permission. Why should I give someone who intends to commit me harm a chance to do so? It's dark, I have no clue if he is armed, or if he is even robbing or here to murder me. If he didn't want to die then he shouldn't have broken into my home. The door is locked for YOUR safety, not mine.

Well thats excessive self defense.

He is in the wrong for coming into your house but shooting first without there being intent to harm or kill makes you the one in the wrong.

You have to be the better person of course if you fear for your life you can shoot but if you can see the robber and they are unarmed then it is your job not to kill them.

If you own a gun you must use it responsibly and not kill someone who is not a threat self defense is legal and shooting to kill is legal but remember self defense can goto the point where it is EXCESSIVE self defense.


But i'm assuming you are American by the sound of it most of you are brainwashed into killing anyone who steps upon your land so why do i even try to reason with someone who is bias.

In the end be the bigger person and not equally as evil as them give them a warning shot or try to make them flee then if they don't run shoot then but if you are fearing for your life shoot but if your not certain they are a threat you should warn them to scare them off.
