Default Legal or Not?

About two years ago, while we were building our house, there was a tweaker that was randomly shooting at, or towards, our house. He was shooting at a "cougar" high as a mother f'er.

Now what is my legal right if we were living at our house. He was about 200yds away and it is sparse tree line (Read no where to run or northing to get behind). What would u do? I live in the country and have been shooting my whole life. I would be looking at him threw the scope at the very least.

You'll need a spotter.

Tweaker? Learn something new every day. 200 yards a little to far for a 12g slug but a few .223 rounds in his directing would get his attention.

If he was "tweaking" and shooting a gun, you should have called the sheriff and got him arrested for tweaking and shooting a gun (in your general direction).

Barrett .50 BMG should take care of your problem.

You have a right always to defend yourself and others from death or serious bodily harm.





But it's hard to make much sense out of your post.

Sorry I have gotten use to texting so I have lost almost all ability to communicate effectively by this point.

I wasn't home when this happened. I received a frantic call from my neighbor telling me that someone is shooting at us. I was out of town so there was nothing I could do. He took of in his car, but the road runs along side the river valley where this guy was fishing. I came out to inspect what had happened the next day and didn't see any holes in my house, but my neighbor had one. I understand that he was just taking random shots towards the tree line in the direction of our house. However there is no trees between our houses and him.

I only ask now because I seen this guy was back out of jail and hanging around town again. He was arrested for this, but seeing him again made me think about what would happen if something like this happened again.


BTW I do have a barrett, but would probably grab a .308.

Call 911 and say this" Shots fired! My crazy neighbor was just released from prison and is shooting at my house, can I shoot back? AGGGHHHH!!! I GOTTA GO, I'LL CALL YOU BACK"

Then sit back and watch. He'll be back in jail within the hour.

He is well known around here. If he isn't selling drugs, he is using.

Load up and call it in. Stay under cover and watch him as best you can. If he comes onto your property then the dispatcher will probably say "go ahead and defend yourself."

Good luck!

(I'm betting 3 pages, not counting Walter Mitty getting Ma Deuce, a Sherman tank or whatever they call that Vienna sausage in their shorts)
