Darlin' dv8: And you left Poland because you did not like the weather? That is the Falkland Islands you are talking about.

Where I used to live in the US, both in West Virginia, New York and New Jersey, we never locked our doors! Crime as we ( you and me) know it here, just did not exist....of course, every house I ever lived in had at least two or three shotguns and a pair of smaller handguns...but they were never ever used....people just did not try and break into a house back then.

Times are a changing... Now I would like to have bear traps all over the house and out in the patio....

Yeah, some folks have great surveillance cameras, but what about the rest? I just wish the DR had the "home is your castle" laws we have most places in the states...

Are you saying one cannot shoot a home invader in the DR without going to jail?

I think you should go to jail (police, not like Najayo kind of place) until everything is clear. A good lawyer should get you out in no time.

There in lies the problem as once they got you in jail, its pay, pay, pay. Call a good lawyer and pay pay some more. Which sadly the thief if he survives seems to pay his way out as well.

Well the idea if you need to use a firearm against a burglar is 1 shot, 1 kill.

in the US they take armed home invasion pretty serious ,I think in most states it carries about a 40 yr. sentence, and you will do most of that.
