I hope there is another side to this story Tousi, I would hate to see innocent people, especially, children being hurt or killed for nothing. I never heard of such a thing in my life that would allow a person to shoot first if they were confronted. Most states, would have that person who shot first in jail. Here in R.I. several years ago, an elderly couple's home was broken into while they were sleeping. It was a young man in his 20's who broke into the house according to the newspaper article. Well, the elderly man got his shotgun and shot at the burglar, getting him in the leg. The burglar pressed charges against the elderly man, and the burglar won!!! Even though he broke into someone else's home, he was trespassing, stealing. He still managed to beat this and win because he was shot at, and there was no evidence that the burglar was armed. Boy, talk about keeping your own home safe huh?
