im wondering in miami,florida what are the laws of home defense? if someone breaks in to your house and all of your lights are off and you cant see if the intruder has a weapon or not what should i do? i have a 6 month old and someone tried to break in the other night so i got my wasr 10 and cocked it. as soon as i did this the person trying to kick my door in fled. after that i was thinking alot because i dont know the home defense laws. and also is it legal for me to go outside with my gun if i hear someone breaking in instead of waiting for them to come in?
