I've got a pretty good view of my property from my bedroom window. My property is insured.
LEGALLY, if I start wandering around to figure out what has my dogs, or my driveway alarm go off, while the law says I can protect property, I would still face 12 people that don't know how to get our of jury duty, if I go "looking for trouble".
911 in my area can be over an hour away, or more. That said, I've got a good defensive area in my house/bedroom.
If a BG, or BGs. are IN MY HOUSE, I have the right to shoot to kill. Old solid walls, great tactical location if BGs approach my "safe zone".
Hopefully, 911 responds, if they don't, they've been alerted and I have a planned defense of the home.
