The rules regarding in car invasion shootings also differ from state to state. The states that have adopted Castle Doctrine laws also reduces the liability of the occupant of a motor vehicle if they kill or injure someone who is entering the car uninvited. Under the Castle Doctrine, the threat level has also been reduced if someone suddenly jumps into your car and the driver and passengers have a much greater latitude in defending themselves. An intruder that has broken into your car is assumed to have planned to do serious harm or to kill those inside. The actual act of a deadly threat does not have to exist for the occupants of the vehicle to shoot the intruder.

It is important to know what the laws in your state allows when it comes to the issue of deadly force. It is important to know the facts so you will feel comfortable when you take action, and you will know that such action will be defended by the Gun Owners Legal Defense Network.
