I hoping to hear some legal experts and/or TX residents on this one. On one hand in some states, you can be completely legal in a life treatening situation only to be scared to death(no pun intended) and swamped w/legal fees and legal troubles. Then in TX, you can kill someone stealing property off your lawn as he retreats. I'm neutral, but it is a good discussion. I myself am big on people being able to protect their families and homes, but over the years I have also learned it is a fine line and you should think twice if there is any doubt because one can gamble with his/her life.
