Virginia drop the ball
But Henry County prosecutor Bob Bushnell, speaking for the Virginia Commonwealth's Attorneys Association, said the legislation would shield someone who opens fire on a mentally ill person who wanders into his home.
It also would provide immunity to a drug dealer who shoots a police officer who enters a home unlawfully because he didn't notice that a magistrate forgot to sign a search warrant, Bushnell said.
"It could cut off the true victim of a crime shot down by a mean-spirited homeowner taking advantage of this," Bushnell said
Once again "might happen", "could happen", etc takes
precedent over the safety of a home owner and his loved
ones when intruded upon...Bad guys win again.
