I have a serious question about defending property with deadly force. Why do people think it’s so wrong to kill or use deadly force to protect property? Is this because of the current state of self-defense laws and rulings? I personally have no problems with the idea of using deadly force to protect, my family, and property. When did we as a society change from being able to protect ones property. I remember my grandfather talking about in 30’s and 40’s people being shot for stealing cars and horses. In today’s day and age, the police do not have the time or resources to investigate home break ins or auto damage. It’s seems everything is pushed to just pay for insurance and use it to cover the lack of protection by the government.
