what are the philippine laws that cover the use of firearms in a self defense situation? let's say akyat bahay type thief. can one legally fire upon the guy even if he has not actually stolen anything yet? breaking and entering or trespassing lang for example. also, what if you catch one of these guys and he is able to run out of your house (with or without your belongings), pwede bang paputukan yan, again legally? i have my thoughts on the matter but i'd like to get some validation for these. thanks.
