“Make My Day”

In Colorado, you have the right to defend yourself in your own home. Man dead after possible ‘make my day’ shooting near downtown Colorado Springs | Colorado Springs Gazette, News

Homeless guy found in home by homeowner. Homeowner shoots homeless guy. (Left – including or maybe especially the press – has a fit.)

The Colorado ‘make my day’ law gives homeowners the right to shoot and kill an intruder at their homes without civil penalty if they feel threatened. Police are continuing to investigate the case and have not confirmed if the shooting falls under the ‘make my day’ guidelines.

Self-defense is a human-right. And in some states, like Colorado, it is also your legal right. (At least under some situations.)
