Your Home Is Your Castle

Your home is your castle and you do have a right to protect yourself when in it. There is a law in the United States referred to as the castle law.

This law simply means that if you come under attack in your own home you do have the right to protect yourself. An example of this was on New Year's Eve in the state of Oklahoma a young mom called 911 for help as two men were trying to break into her home.

First let me say my heart goes out to this woman as she had lost her husband to cancer on Christmas Eve two men attempted to break into her home on New Year's Eve where she was alone with her three-month-old baby. She called 911 and asked for help. She did inform them she was sitting there with two guns in her hand. She asked if she could shoot these people if they came into her house she was informed by the operator do what you have to do to protect your baby. As the burglary proceeded they entered her home where she promptly shot one dead the other fled but was later captured by police.

The question being asked now is can she be legally responsible for killing the intruder? Under the castle law in Oklahoma she had a perfect right to defend herself and her family no charges will be filed. Many states have this law. In most cases anyway if someone breaks into your home you to have the right to defend it. The castle law states that you to have the right to use deadly force if an unauthorized person is trying to gain entry into your home. Home invaders be aware you may be at the end of a smoking shotgun on your next job.
