  •  Honestly, the burden of proof does not exist with (0+ / 0-)

    the homeowner, at all, when an intruder is shot inside the home.  

     Someone broke into their home and unless state law proves otherwise, the homeowner is not required to investigate who the person is, why they are there or any other means to then decide if the intruder has a right to be breaking into their home at 2am.  They have a right to defend their life and/or property with lethal force....again, unless state law proves otherwise.  

    A warning shot is also not required, I am almost certain.
