    Didn't some state just make it legal to shoot ANYONE who enters your home without your permission or without a warrant?

    Indiana. They, IIRC, struck down the 'qualified exemption', or some such for all State employees. Including Law Enforcement.

    State employees now take the same risk to illegally enter an armed home as any other trespasser. I agree with this.
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.
    In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

    A lot of people that dont like this law miss the part where it says illegal entry.

    This law was enacted in response to an Indiana SC decision. Some guy beating his wife retreated into his house and then argued a right to resist officers who entered under 'exigent circumstances' (which actually existed, by my reading). The SC went too far, and wrote in the decision that homeowners had no right to resist under any circumstances, essentially gutting Fourth Amendment protection. This law was enacted in response to the majority decision.

    On edit: Is actually reading the Constitution a prerequisite for an appointment to any Supreme Court? If it is, someone will have to prove that to me; it is not evident in the facts before us...
