True, we are not legally allowed to shoot to protect property either, in OK. Thanks for the other thoughts on reasonable force…true, a chair, club, etc. But if the aggressor is armed–even with a club or crowbar–or young and strong, I do have my age and sex on my side. (71 yr old female.) There are times when “equality” goes out the window, because it isn’t factual anyway. The instructor said I must do what I can to stop the attack. My thoughts exactly.
