I have asked a lot of people the same question, and the general consensus was that in a justifiable shooting, you will have criminal and civil charges brought against you. If it even goes to court, you will likely win the criminal case as a jury of your peers generally understands your actions and their necessity. The real problem is the civil suit. Even if it is not the family of the BG, then someone else will step in and sue. Every single bullet that comes out of your gun has a lawyer attached. Civil suits are decided by a single judge, and gun control is a hot political topic, and many lawyers and judges are eager to make a career off of such a emotional topic.
