Jesus christ some of you are violent you would shoot an unarmed robber i bet...


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'm probably one of the least American people you'll ever meet, but if you break into my home you get the consequences.


Well after hearing peoples reasons why i can understand i mean fear is a powerful tool.

I'd try to stop the robber by force and then call the police. But because I live in Sweden I will probably get a worse punishment than what the robber will, so it will just turn out for the worse. Yay.......

So yeah. I would have to figure out what the hell happened in the morning (*cough* afternoon). That would be a tricky one to explain to the police,



Shooting a robber who is not a threat or is not attacking you isn't even self defense at that point it's homicide as wrong as it is for them to be robbing your house it doesn't give you the right to kill them... then again maybe i just come from a country that is sane compared to yours.


I live in a fairly remote area. Entering the house means I was clearly targeted. I am not going to risk someone pulling a concealed weapon in the dark, or just the fact I would no be able to see it. You break into people's houses? You have forfeit your life and you know that is the risk. I was actually mostly joking, as I do not even have a .45 handgun at the moment. However, if it was a matter of choosing between the potential breach of the safety of people I care about, or the well-being or a criminal, I am always going to pick the former.

Edit:
Looking at your other remarks, I am confused why you prioritize the safety of someone breaking into your HOME, over the inhabitants. You call me violent? Your moral high-ground is invalidated by the person actually committing a very potentially violent crime. Also, I may live in the USA, but that does not mean you can lump me in with gangsters and psychopaths who actually commit murder. You know nothing about me. I am actually more peaceful than the majority of people, and I can prove this by having been a vegetarian my entire life, I have love for all animals. However, this does not mean that someone can trample me and my loved ones. I will protect them.

Now, I am currently sitting in my father's house. My sister suffers from chronic juvenile arthritis. I love my sister. There is 0 chance that I am going to let some jackass, who is statistically likely to hurt someone in the house. A robber's nerves are on edge, so they are likely to hurt someone if something happens. My sister would be unable to effectively flee or fight for herself. I do not understand why "Justice" to some people is protecting the criminal and risking the victim. Why do we need to care about what happens to someone caught committing a crime? Why are murderers given free meals and shelter for the rest of their lives? That Justice is twisted.

Bottom line is if you threaten (even slightly), someone I love; Be prepared to die for it.

There should be two gun related options. Open fire immediately and following the castle rule. Retreat, announce yourself and intentions, then if they still go to the farthest area (or wherever you could get to), yeah.....


I dunno, some people think anyone with a gun is just out to kill. As someone that doesn't even own a gun, I know a few people are logical about it, though I am sure there are some that mean well and the adrenaline makes them insane [though depending on actions it could get them in trouble].

How so? If someone breaks into your house, there is a chance that:

A: They fully intend to or do not care if they hurt someone
B: A situation may arise where they hurt someone due to nerves and adrenaline.

Why would killing someone who has violated your safety and privacy make you as bad as that person? That makes no sense. The victim here should not have to take a risk, having NO idea what the intentions of the perpetrator are. Sure, they might steal $100. Or they might kidnap someone, rape someone, or even KILL someone if you just let them do their thing. I have served on a Grand Jury in the area. I know from as a result that the majority of criminals are usually armed, even if they are just running drugs around. The chance of a robber having a gun or other weapon is high.

Which outcome would you prefer, forced to choose one :

-#1: The robber is killed,
-or #2; The residents are killed.
-(There is no Option 3)

If it takes more than a second to choose #1, you seriously need to reconsider your logic on a matter like this. Personally, I would not want to have to kill someone, but you never know what might happen. A few months ago a couple murderers broke out of prison nearby and fled through our area. One of them had broken into the house of his boss, kidnapped him, then dismembered him. I stayed up all night with a loaded 9mm at my side so my sister felt safe enough to sleep. I would never betray her trust in the safety I might provide by hesitating if I confirmed a hostile intent in the house (breaking in IS hostile). Would that make me less human? Personally I think not, but I guess our values differ.

Well if they threaten you, you have every right to shoot also i don't put the saftey of the robber first i merely say he or she should be taken in consideration and if you can get away without anyone being hurt its for the best.

Also criminals are highly likely to be armed with a weapon in your area....well that sounds like a horrible place to even live no wonder you need a gun.

Sorry if i offended in anyway i was just trying to put my opinion on the matter across that shooting should not be made as a rash decision but a logical one.'

sorry for lumping you all into one group that was racist and even bigotted of me and i apologize i hope you can forgive me.
