New Jersey has some very strict laws when it comes to gun ownership and defending yourself even when someone breaks into your home. New Jersey has laws that require a home owner to retreat if the home owner believes that deadly-force can be avoided or to “shelter-in-place” in case of an emergency or a break-in. Basically meaning to run, hide, cower in fear and wait for the police to arrive while someone is unwanted in your home. There should be NO valid reason as to why someone would be allowed to illegally enter anyone’s home. Death may be extreme, but if you’re disabled or you feel threatened and give fair warning that you will kill an intruder, using deadly force is very fair option.

Recent break-ins in New Jersey have resulted in families being tied up in the “Middlesex County Invasions” and beaten / tortured while their belongings and valuables were stolen. Given these recent events, anyone’s immediate response shouldn’t be to sit there and question the situation or find out why someone is in your house. Time is imperative in situations like these and slowly reacting can result in personal injury and even death to the home owner. Give fair warning and if the intruder doesn’t leave immediately, then your initial response should be to eliminate the threat.
