I think texas is the only wackphuk state that has little discrimination for deadly force on property.
Remember the law will always defend the living over the material.
In most states, you can use deadly force to protect yourself or your family against a perceived threat of death or serious injury.
If I wake up to find a stranger standing in the dark in my bedroom, it could take a long time to clean up the mess and for my ears to stop ringing...
