You say that, like it's a bad thing

The WaPo and the AP have a bit of a problem with self-defense.
DALLAS -- The shooting death of a member of Edie Brickell & New Bohemians appears to fall under state law permitting deadly force in self-defense, police said Tuesday.
The shooter was not arrested and is unlikely to be charged with anything.

Apparently they don't get how if you are trying to break into my house in the middle of the night and you ignore repeated verbal warnings not to do so, you constitute a reasonable threat.

But then the WaPo and the AP don't want people to depend on themselves. They want you to call Dial a Prayer - or 911 - and pray to be rescued.
