UPDATED: With all of the burglaries and robberies, as I understand the sue of deadly physical force - you are authroized in the use of deadly physical force if your life or that of another is in danger of death or serious physical injury. Serious physical injury was described to me as the loss of limb - some act that could case you or someone else serious physical injury. You can not shoot a person running away from you unless they stop and turn and you feel your life or the life of another could be in danger.
Next week I will speak with a District Attorney on camera and as the true definition. With all of the robberies and burglaries we have been having, it is getting more and more important for people to protect themselves.
As to gun control that President Obama talks about and the government leaders that have armed protection around them. My suggestion, if we begin gun control, let us begin with those who have armed protection and start at the top. Take the guns and weapons from the secret service and the captial police first. The leaders need to lead by example. If the citizens can not have protection, then those making the rules do not need armed protection. What is fair is fair, right?
