A Tale of Two Defensive Shootings.

Tulsa World: Intruder shot in Muskogee home robbery in the US - at least most of the US - you are able to defend yourself from intruders in your home.
District Attorney Larry Moore said the evidence so far in the case indicates the homeowner was defending himself against an intruder.

Moore said he doesn't expect to file charges against
the homeowner but will consider charges against the intruder.
Compare this to the story from the other day out of Canada, where the victim of a home invasion was arrested and charged for defending himself.

Self-defense is a human right, unfortunately a lot of governments don't want citizens thinking and acting on their own behalf. Better a few injured, raped or dead serfs than a bunch of independent-minded citizens.
