Oh! nonono... i didnt mean everything should be the christian way and all that crap. I aint a religious person at all!

I just meant the what it said in the book of exodus is how it should be! As in, the right to be able to defend yourself in your own home.

Yes id take their heads off clean with one of my swords. I would deal with the rest later. You may spend a year or two behind bars maybe more but at least you would have ur family alive and there for you. If you dont do anything they may not be around any more and you may not be either. Knowing how ever so "harsh" our beloved UK is to killers i think they would be out in a few years with the tag "they dont pose any danger to society no more".. :roll:

By the way good responses from the guys on here :-D

generally speaking i would try and use resonable force but if i was in any doubt i would strike to kill and trust my fate to a jury of my peers to decide on my punishment (if any)

When you're in court for killing a burglar with your sword, there's one phrase you need to remember...

"I demand Trial by Battle!"

I didn't know you could still demand that. Yes, by the way. If a person poses what I consider to be an immediate and lethal threat to myself or to a friend or family member, I would aim primarily to kill. If they are incapacitated (sp?) then all well and good, but if not, I doubt anyone but their parents would shed any tears.
