Indiana legalizes shooting cops?


In Indiana it has become legal to shoot a police officer if they unlawfully enter one's home. The controversial gun law is the first of its kind in the United States and has many law enforcement officials unhappy with the recent ruling. The National Rifle Association was a strong supporter of the so-called Castle Doctrine recently passed in Indiana, but could we expect to see an increase in these types of incidents? Mark Walters, host of Armed America Radio, joins us for more.

That sounds great BUT,

it is already constitutionally "legal" to shoot a cop if he enters your home unlawfully. But what good does it do you? Just ask the Branch Davidians who were acquitted on the murder charges when they killed the ATF agents who stormed their home illegally. Not only were their peers dead but they were still put in jail on other trumped up charges.

So this is just academic to make people feel like they still have some "right". Believe me that it will not stop any police unlawfulness nor will this new law keep the police from killing you if you try to defend yourself in your own home.


unlawfully enter one's home
All this stems from the EVIL drug war!!
They crated a monster! It must stop!!now
But sheeple still believes the LIES!!
Damn Shame!!!Wake up folks! The Drug war is the problem! Just the way they like it!


Forget satan, don't you know drugs are the root of all evil.

Article fails to tell the whole story

Indiana is where a judge recently ruled that the police have a right to enter anyone's home for any reason without a warrant.

This law is a reaction to that.

So, if a cop comes into your home, without a warrant, and without probable cause of someone in imminent danger, they are a tresspasser and you have the right to stop them, which includes shooting them.

Sounds like a reasonable legislative reaction to an unreasonable judicial action.

I remember...

Driving a friend to his home late at night after picking him up at the airport.

We went through a known speed trap at 40mph (30mph marked) that is in the middle of nowhere and is there just to pick up funds for the county, straight road, no houses. It was midnight on a Sunday, I figured I'd go as slow as my foot would allow me.

Then I saw lights coming in front of me. I didn't do anything, but figured it wasn't a cop. It was. He flew by me at a high rate of speed, then slammed on the brakes, did a dust kicking u-turn, squeals and all, then accelerated to AT LEAST 80mph, came up behind me with his high beams on and put his SUV bumper about 1' off my tailgate. I was REALLY tempted to slam on the brakes, but figured that wouldn't end well either. So after basically threatening me with his vehicle for 100 yards or so, he finally pulled me over and ticketed me.

But, wait? Who broke the most laws? Who was the most aggressive and dangerous driver? I mean, this is just an example on a small magnitude, but this is how cops think. That they are entitled to risk everyone's lives to give something as simple as a ticket, what about if I were ACTUALLY breaking real laws? How many people need to be risked over THAT? The government is more dangerous than all of the criminals. s

What it is

Basically, this law keeps you from being prosecuted if some SWAT team decides to to burst through your door in the middle of the night, and it turns out that they have no warrant. Intruders pop the lock, break into your bedroom and you bounce off the other side of the bed, magnum in hand. Before hitting the floor, you pop off two rounds twords a shadowy figure.

I disagree that this will make hunting cops legal. Whenever an officer enters a building unexpectedly (or even expected) with or without the proper paperwork, they know that there is the possibility that they will be shot at. All this does is keep the innocent from being hauled into court and charged with murder.

As the rights of the public

As the rights of the public were and are being eroded away, the slogan from the authorities is that "If you aren't doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about!" Well, it's time to throw this crappy slogan right back at them! If THEY aren't doing anything wrong, THEY have nothing to worry about! RIGHT?

They're not peace...

officers any longer when they break the law. Anyone that enters a home uninvited should be shot. That is an attribute of a free society with property rights.

This is a return to true American values. AMEN!


Liberty = Responsibility

That is fantastic. Really,

That is fantastic.

Really, it should be illegal for the police to shoot someone in their own home. That would solve a WHOLE LOT of problems.

They wouldn't go bursting in with guns, that's for sure, and a lot fewer innocent citizens would die.

If someone illegally enters your home, why should their employer

be of any relevant concern?
