Thread: The Use Of Deadly Force

  1. <<< "and if you're concerned about that at the time of the incident you probably weren't justified." >>>

    I had an nstructor once tell me if you have to think about whether you are justified or not to pull your weapon, you probably aren't.

    I have searched but my google skills need help.

    Anyone know my states laws on home defense in an apartment using deadly force? I live in Kentucky. I can't seem to google this result or find it on the forum. Thanks in advance, i will continue to look for this or ask a cop if i have to.

    This is the best i have found, but it doesn't seem to cover the topic.

    I hope you stick around, you can learn a lot here! I bolded/change color of important phrases

    503.055 Use of defensive force regarding dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle -- Exceptions.

    Thanks for posting that. I really tried using the search function and google, but must have not used the correct keyword combos. So much info available here its hard to sort through all of it since i am not familiar with the layout of the forum.

    Had to search just to find the introductions forum. That should be easier to find for the ones even slower than me :)
