It's lucky the homeowners were able to wrest control of the shotgun from the criminals, but I'm mildly surprised they weren't packing. If these fine specimens of humanity had kicked in my door overnight, they'd both be dead and I'd be regrouting the tile in my entry.

while we were in Oklahoma they instituted a Make My Day law, where you can willingly and legally open fire on anyone you deem is a threat to your person or home

What felony is associated with retrieving a basketball? I don't see what reasonable belief of intended injury or felony would happen with that.

(And I use silver-jacketed ammunition. Keeps vampires dead too.)

thats my point, there doesn't have to be a felony, just a "perceived" one before you can openly shoot a trespasser or someone you "consider" is going to do you bodily harm or take something off your property... there will be an investigation yes, but more than likely it will be your word against the dead guys as to what happens, and tie goes to the runner, so you won't be charged
