My response to, “there’s nothing in your home worth taking a life over” has been, “he thinks there is”.
My response has always been that if someone breaks into your home you do not know what they are after. Maybe he is after your VCR or maybe he is a pedophile rapist looking for victims.
Bottom line, if you don't want me to shoot you, then don't break into my home.
My response to, theres nothing in your home worth taking a life over is my family and my life is worth protecting. If I have to kill someone then they made a career ending choice.
