That is how the law reads, with all of the normal caveats, reasonable belief, whether it was reasonable to believe, etc. As I said, it's not advice, and the rest of what I wrote was about how reasonable belief on the part of the shooter isn't always a correct assessment. The farther away a person is, for example a stranger, distance, understanding, so forth. Reasonable belief can go up in smoke when a person isn't directly involved. What can appear to be clear cut can turn into something totally different, and acting rashly without proper consideration can be a disaster.

The shooter can only act on his own beliefs, but the system judges whether or not his actions and beliefs were correct, so to speak.

Sd situations are never good for the careless or stupid, poor judgment is not protected.

Is this close to correct?
