Indiana is the firtst state that officially legalizes citizens to shoot any public servant who is unlawfully intruding into the citizen’s space.
Cops are outraged.
The National Rifle Association was behind this law, which grew out of a state supreme court ruling that citizens have no right to defend themselves.
Presumably, the state supreme court will rule this law unconstitutional. Maybe this ruling will be appealed.
The right to keep and bear arms has no judicial meaning if the citizen does not have the right to use a weapon to defend himself against unauthorized misuse of badges and guns.
This law reverses the trend of law enforcement agencies to use SWAT teams to break into homes where suspects have never lived.
“Oops. Sorry about that,” will no longer suffice. In Indiana, SWAT tram members are now at risk.
Still, to get your day in court, you must be alive. This law could lead to dead witnesses holding guns with a few rounds missing.
Passing a law is one thing. Defending yourself in court is another. You must first get into court.
