Government should send two messages:
Unjustified killings are murder -- if you kill the postman, you will be in trouble.
Justified killing is condoned and rewarded by the state. Home invader? Kill him with impunity. Trials are messy and expensive.
The state should support the right to self-defense and property protection. If you are a bad guy, you are taking serious risks, and the government is on the side of the people you are trying to victimize.
Knaves are not protected by the Constitution.
Isn’t three a bit young to break into homes?
Oh the horror of it all! A young man lost his life because of a gun! Cant you NRA nuts see why we need to take your guns away now?
One star out of a possible 3. Attackers and home invaders lose all their rights the moment they attack an innocent person anywhere. The innocent person has the right and the obligation to repulse the attacker, including using deadly force if necessary. This right was not given to us by the government, and the government does not have the right to take it away.
Ya know why the left disagrees with me on this?
cuz the left wants the “downtrodden underclass oppressed minority whatever” to just waltz right in and take what is “rightfully” theirs.
