Read the entire article on use of force.
Read all of my posts before making assumptions. It will explain better, who I am and where I come from.
I have no problem with use of deadly force when directly engaged. I have discussed these robbery type scenarios with several instructors. You need to know your State as they are not the same. I get to know every States law I am Licensed in, prior to entering that State.

People should practice being in a state of relaxed awareness similar to defensive driving. Enjoy life, but study your surroundings.....http://www.stratfor.com/weekly/pract...onal-awareness
Just because you can escape does not mean you have to try to in many states. In many states, if you have a right to be there,( I.E. at home or in your car ) you do not have to leave it.It is the idea that, whatever the situation, you are expected to use force only as a last resort—that is, only when the circumstances preclude all other options.

Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.
I have only been on this forum for two days. I do apologize if I didn't take the time to read not only this HUGE thread but all the others that I see listed under a variety of topics. I can tell you when I am dealing with a pompous ass like this BlueSteeleFish guy.
I can admit when I'm wrong, I don't need to be lectured to like I am a new born babe in the condescending tone presented by him. If he is a mod of this site, he sucks at it.
Let me guess.. Bluefish WAS either retired police or better yet, one of those guys who thinks only HE knows how to correlate all the facts and present them to the poor people so they can understand them.
Nuff said. You need to work on your people skills as well as your range skills to be rounded.
Rights like the Castle Doctrine do not apply in a restaurant that you are patronizing. It was designed for your home.
Other laws pertinent to your location may exist, I just don't know what they are.
Everyone who carries a handgun is responsible for knowing your laws as they apply to you.
Just sayin...., ya know?
What was your point?

§ 2305. Justifiable homicide
If a person kills or wounds another under any of the circumstances enumerated below, he or she shall be guiltless:
(1) In the just and necessary defense of his or her own life or the life of his or her husband, wife, parent, child, brother, sister, master, mistress, servant, guardian or ward; or
(2) In the suppression of a person attempting to commit murder, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, burglary or robbery, with force or violence;
See that "OR" between (1) and (2)? In (2) do you see any requirement to be in your own home? Nope.
