Maybe it’s also a good idea to keep your doors locked..........
But no matter the circumstances, if the homeowner orders you to leave and you advance on him, your a** is his.
I bought a second home in that area recently, very rural, lots of acres. Here in Nashville I can get hassled by the HOA for stupid stuff, but out there things are different. When I say “get off my lawn” (or property) I can back it up with a display of overwhelming firepower and not get arrested. Out there it is a lot like the way things used to be a couple generations ago, before all the intrusive laws, back when people took care of matters themselves.
