ah ok thanks that's awesome. i was wondering if felony-level theft would count as a justifiable case, it seems not.

Just saying.  I know you guys pucker your buttholes and get all uppity when I preach pro-gun/pro-armed self-defense but I'm not what you love to imagine is some poor southern redneck sitting on my front porch with a shotgun and a rebel flag.  I take this issue very seriously and though I hope I never need my weapon, if they time comes I want to be reasonable certain my use of deadly force is lawful and just.

I was about to say it was nice to see your tone when it comes to this issue. You're right, many on Spiked are anti gun (including myself, however as a non American my opinions are less important) but this comment from you makes me realise you're not as crazy as I once assumed. My apologies!
