    I found out yesterday that we have a way kool law here in Oklahoma. Lets say two BG's break into my apt to rob me,and I defend my self with deadly force on one BG but the other gets away. The BG that got away can be charged with murder because I defended myself. That is so freakin kool man:thumbsup::supergrin:

    I think it's the same here in MI.

    In the past few years MI. has introduced some really good laws that protect defensive shooters, including a rather comprehensive Castle Doctrine.

    I've heard of that happening before. If someone is killed during the act of comitting a felony the assailant can be charged with murder or manslaughter or something along those lines.

    See Mayor, if you had a Glock the second one wouldn't get away, you would have enough rounds to get em both, but with the 1911 you just run out of ammo :tongueout::rofl::supergrin:

    Yea but what I have learned here on GT about the 10mm is that the shock wave inside the apartment could vaporize the Mayor also, then what would we do??

    We have a similar law here in Colorado. If someone dies during the commission of a felony, the person charged with that felony can also be charged with murder. I'm not sure if it's 3rd degree, 2nd, or 1st.

    Also in Colorado, if you defend yourself with deadly force inside your residence(including attached buildings that have doorways into the residence) we have something called the Make My Day Law which protects you from other criminal charges AND any civil lawsuits should the death of the intruder/attacker be ruled a justifiable homicide.

    This^.... and it has nothin' to do with the Castle Doctrine. If your partner in crime gets blown to bits , the accomplice CAN be charged with accessory. Castle Doctrine would simply be okies right to defend himself in his "castle" and has no duty to retreat.

    Here is the law in TX (some non-germane provisions reacted):

    "§ 7.02. CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR CONDUCT OF
    ANOTHER.

    (a) A person is criminally responsible for an offense
    committed by the conduct of another if:

    (2) acting with intent to promote or assist the
    commission of the offense, he solicits, encourages, directs, aids,
    or attempts to aid the other person to commit the offense; or

    (b) If, in the attempt to carry out a conspiracy to commit
    one felony, another felony is committed by one of the conspirators,
    all conspirators are guilty of the felony actually committed,
    though having no intent to commit it, if the offense was committed
    in furtherance of the unlawful purpose and was one that should have
    been anticipated as a result of the carrying out of the conspiracy."

    This is the basically the law in every state in the US.
