Self-defense Is Legal in Nashville

Also being blind drunk can be hazardous to your health. Homeowner shoots intruder in the leg after break-in at Mosaic Apartments.

So what would you do if someone broke the sliding-glass door into your home in the middle of the night, with your wife and her mother in the home with you?

The homeowner said he heard a banging sound, so he grabbed a gun and took the women into the back of the apartment. While on the phone with 911, the homeowner warned the suspect not to move. The suspect did not listen and the homeowner shot the suspect in the leg.

That guys is lucky he didn’t get shot in the heart or the head.

He then got his family out of there, but apparently came back when he saw the police. Being drunk? The homeowner thought that the guy who got shot was drunk.

No word on whether or not the intruder will face charges or what charges he might face.

Metro Police said the homeowner will not face charges.

Because self-defense is a human-right, and in Tennessee it also your legal right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. (Or should that be incredibly stupid guys 0?)

JusticeBut then I thought it was. No charges will be filed against Ardis Lane shooter who killed two in self-defense.

Two miscreants break into a home and find an armed homeowner. One dies at the scene, the other dies at a local hospital. Cops and the DA believe it is self-defense.

“Someone unlawfully enters one of those places like breaks in, or something when they’re not supposed to be there,” said [Attorney] John Cavett. “Then, the person is entitled to use force to protect themselves, family members, or people that are there as guests.”

Cavett says self-defense covers someone’s home, vehicle, or business. If the owner feels threatened, then action can be taken.
