It is if you throw a natural 20.

"unidentified crazy-making chemicals" is a bit awkward.

Open the door, slap the throat and grab the gun, slam the door. Whole encounter probably lasted 2 seconds.

Even "heroism" is self-serving.

Any mediocre prosecutor can successfully try a case like that. If you use deadly force after neutralizing the threat, you're a murderer in the eyes of the law. It doesn't matter where you live.

It's OK for the evil rich homeowner to assault the innocent poor abused poor person who was exploited by the evil rich because he did not use a gun.

It's good as long as potential nare do well, doesn't have a gun, or isn't willing to use it, which is a lot of times actually since guns do make quite a bit of noise.

Vicious dog and 357 magnum adds some redundancy.

SnakeLee: Literally every comment at TFA's comment section basically says "after he karate chopped him in the throat and rendered him unconscious, he should have taken the gun and shot him multiple times." If you click on any of their profiles, basically all the other comments they make on the site are saying exactly the same thing except in different articles, even when it doesn't even really make sense. I'm not even exaggerating. I'm guessing they're all pro-life too


I suspect that's bravado, in the same way I witnessed a Farker advocating that the judicial system torture and mutilate pedophiles with acid. Most are Internet Tough GuysTM who would be terrified at the prospect of actually killing someone.

Not to say there aren't real sickos who would do it, but most are just idiots who think they're cool.

AverageAmericanGuy: Bath salts strike again.

You never hear about home invasions because someone was high on marijuana.


I thought that was the case in stories that end up with the invader cooking a pizza, drinking a beer and passing out on the couch with a movie playing?

I can say if I was in such a situation, I'd like to have a gun..

I can't say what I'd do in such a situation, besides piss myself a little. Definitely don't want to kill someone unless it was absolutely necessary, I have a conscience and stuff...

Police said the homeowner then karate-chopped Smith in the throat, took the rifle and closed the door while he waited for officers to arrive.

Probably not. If it is a legitimate school where the belts are not given out like candy, then he will have needed to be mature enough to reach brown belt, and while he might not like you, he'd never challenge you physically. If it is a crappy school where they give belts out like candy, then his brown belt means nothing, and you can probably use it to discipline him if he gets out of hand.

No shiat.

Courts: You assaulted the man. Also, when you took his gun, you then possessed a illegal firearm. 2yrs in jail!

If you are trained in hand to hand combat and you are in such a situation, sure. Not all home invasions start that way.

Nope. No pity for home invaders in TX, and no anger towards 80 year old men who defend their property. In case you hadn't heard about it, google Joe Horn.

That case didn't even make it to a judge because the prosecutor grand juried it to make it go away.
