That's the problem with lethal engagements nowadays. Nobody wishes to engage in fisticuffs anymore.

If the guy didn't make it in the house, because he didn't have keys and wasn't actually trying to break in... can castle doctrine still be invoked? If the door was shut, how did he get shot? Did the home-owner open the door and shoot the drunk guy?
Trying to imagine what I would do if I heard someone jiggling my doorknob at 4:20 am, and what sounded like someone trying different keys and/or messing with the lock. If I had a firearm (which I don't, because I live in Canada) I could see myself pointing it at the door and waiting for the guy to enter or go away. I suppose I would make the split-second decision when I saw him whether he was a threat or a drunk idiot. Default would be "threat" so he probably shouldn't be wearing a hoodie.
Go talk to BSR about that.That's the problem with lethal engagements nowadays. Nobody wishes to engage in fisticuffs anymore.
My run-ins with people as an adult always seem to remain verbal.
