I believe so.
    My brother got into this situation. Knocked a bouncer out in a bar parking lot, when he fell backwards he hit his head on the curb, messed him up really bad (some type of brain damage). He was charged with felony assault. After spending thousands on an attorney and eye witness/video showing the bouncer instigated it as my brother was trying to leave the bar, it was pled down to a misdemeanor simple assault (or something like that). He does have a mandatory "cooling down" period when he tries to buy a gun now.

    I'm glad you guys got it worked down to something a little more reasonable/manageable. Little purpose is served by responding to an accidental tragedy with an extreme punishment to someone in an unlucky situation.

    I think you are correct...but I would still be hesitant given the chance it might go to a jury.

    Definitely a scary deal for in an all the way around bad situation. He of course didn't even want the misdemeanor, but in the grand scheme just take the slap on the wrist and be done with it.

    So this **** was paroled after serving 15 years for MANSLAUGHTER for killing his 92 year grandmother with a HAMMER and all we're hearing is what kind of gun he used. Who the **** let this freak out of jail?

    Not surprising since he hated his sister.

    Firefighters Killed as Arsonist Ambushed Them...

    I'm PRETTY SURE that your vehicle is an extension of your home in the state of Oklahoma. If you're in your car during an attack, the law reads the same as if you're in your house.

    So if I'm in the driver seat and my window is bashed in by a crowbar, using deadly force to end the attack is seen as reasonable.

    No idea if there are past examples of people mugging others while unarmed met with deadly force, so I'm not sure how it would be seen.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'm sure it's happened at some point, probably every year, but I can't seem to remember any news stories like that...
