I just took the class and got my NC CCL. Hate to say this but this is what they teach.. if you are in your house and forced entry is occuring you can defend to include use of deadly force.. if you are outside like he was and you know someone has broken in to your house you call 911 you do not go in and shoot.. he most likly will be charged and do some time.. sad but true..
"Honest I was not aware he was in there until I stepped through the door". Then it just happened, BANG! BANG!
