Stand Your Ground

Forensics, witnesses, etc. Even if you did manage to trick a jury, you would still have God to deal with.

And it isn’t what Stand Your Ground laws say.

In PA, where I live, I believe you can shoot someone if they are on your property if you feel threatened. If you, lets say, poach on someone elses land and they find you, they can shoot you since you are holding a weapon. Even if you are caught in someone elses house, they can shoot you under the guides of “You were robbing him”.

If a couple of street thugs in hoodies break into my white-bread-suburban-two-car-garage house and I shoot them dead, chances are the police won’t charge me.

As far as God goes, if I feel any guilt I’ll go to confession. :shrug:
