The Person In His house has the right to run, therefore to get out of your house. However if he turns to confront you, in otherword try and fight you,
you have the right to shoot in the self-defence.
However if you confront sombody with a gun in your house (trying to rob it or whatever) you must give him a warning like - "get out of my house, or
ill shoot you!" say that a couple of times and if he doesnt get the message fire a warning shot, if he runs - you cant shoot him, if he goes for
somthing that could present a threat (like he looks like he is going to pull out a gun) shoot him til he's down.
The law states you can only use a weapon in SELF-DEFENCE to hurt sombody - therefore if he turns to run away, its not self-defence anymore is it??
