    The Governor signed into law legislation endorsing Indiana residents' right to use deadly force against intruders, a change that prevents courts from ruling that individuals should flee first before using a gun.

    Way to go Indiana! You can now protect yourself in your own home. Now on to more states!

    that is awesome. i always said i would shoot em anyway and take my chances with a jury. glad to see some of our leaders are finaly waking up. if a criminal knows you can just shoot him he might think twice.

    Kentucky is going through the process right now I believe. It was in the paper and seems like it had plenty of support.

    I live in Indiana and it is good to know that I can defend myself and my property without having to face repurcussions. I would have done the same thing before but its nice to not have to worry about criminal charges.

    Louisiana has "shoot the burglar (sp) law" and it they applied it to your vehicle also.

    That's right brother....better to be judged at trial by 12 than carried by 6 at a funeral.

    I have always said that I would take care of the situation if I had to. That is awesome now that I won't have to rott in jail if I shoot someone for breaking in.
