This is as straight forward of a simple case of self defense as there is. On your own property, masked thieves show up and fire at you, you return fire... show more 3 violent thieves walk into a yard with a gun firing at residents, get gunned down. Thank goodness the homeowner was able to avoid being murdered in his own yard. This is as straight forward of a simple case of self defense as there is. On your own property, masked thieves show up and fire at you, you return fire and kill them, saving your own life and the lives of others there with you, not to mention any future violent acts these 3 criminals would have gone on to commit had they not been shot down.
Update: @ katydid: When the decision is made to shoot, it is because the person believes he is in danger of great bodily harm and/or death. The proper way to shoot in that situation is center mass as it gives the best possibility of quickly ending the threat.
