    Not true. use of deadly force (in NC) is justified as below:

    You are legally justified in using deadly force (i.e., your handgun) against another person, when and only when:

    1. You actually believe deadly force is necessary to prevent an imminent threat of death, great bodily harm, or sexual assault, and

    2. The facts and circumstances prompting that belief would cause a person of ordinary firmness to believe deadly force was necessary to prevent an imminent threat of death, great bodily harm, or sexual assault, and

    3. You were not an instigator or aggressor who voluntarily provoked, entered, or continued the conflict leading to deadly force, and

    4. The force used was not excessive, i.e., the force used was not greater than reasonably needed to overcome the threat posed by a hostile aggressor.


    So, cut to the angry mob armed with Molotov cocktails approaching your home, and you reasonably believe they will be used to burn down homes with families inside. Then yes, you are within your rights. You will be tried, and there is no guarantee you will prevail, but this is exactly the definition of self defense.

    And yes, this also extends to defending others from an imminent threat of death or serious bodily harm.

    I guess this A hole had a burning desire to start a fire. Well he did and it was quite personal.

    I FINALLY watched the video, and believe I recognize the building. If it is what I think it is, it is the old slave market building, which might explain why he was trying to torch it.

    My bet is that he was just a dumb kid who got talked into doing it. Some of these idiots try to make Molotovs using plastic bottles.
    The originals were made by chemistry students at the Sorbonne and had no gasoline or wick but on breaking would ignite the German tanks below by reacting with the grease and paint [or skin and uniforms.]

    Apparently what this guy did might work:

    As looters were ransacking stores in Santa Monica Sunday during the George Floyd protests, one man took matters into his own hands.
    The owner of Broadway Wine & Spirits, located in the 1000 block of roadway, told CBSLA he and some friends decided to stand in front of his store armed with guns.
    He said that as looters neared the store, they instead decided to keep walking once they saw his AR-15 and the other guns.

    “It was a good thing I had my customers and friends by my side, because it was pretty scary,” Joe told CBSLA.

    Joe said he and his friends also helped keep other nearby businesses safe as well. ---CBS LA
