Massad Ayoob blog post

Monday, February 13th, 2012

I don’t have the best eye for these things, but [in his Feb 13 blog post] are those 9mm rounds laying next to a 38 special revolver on the cover of that report? That’d be funny.

Regardless, thanks for all you do. I am an avid reader of your work. It’s changed how I live my life and think about how I go about my day as a responsible member of society. You’re a great American and I’m a huge Mas Ayoob booster whenever I speak to anyone on the topic of firearms, personal defense, and the legal considerations associated with both subjects.

Many warm regards,

Jeff Roberts

Part of his blog states incorrectly ” You cannot, of course, use deadly force merely because the intruder is in your house.” This is a blanket statement. Not only here in Texas, but in many other states that have the “Castle Doctrine”, we may shoot to kill without checking for a weapon.

Secondly, the “intruder” doesn’t even have to be in the residence! Just wanted to add my two cents.




Having been involved in multiple homicide trials in Texas, I can tell you that courtroom ordeals are not precluded by the the law to the extent that some seem to believe.
