I have anger issues....
Then again, maybe it's a Texas thing because girls there are taught early on that if he's on your property and you feel threatened, you are justified in defending yourself.
Here's a story that will help illustrate that: When I was 19 I had a gf who left her husband after he beat her one too many times. She had come over to my house and we were planning to go out together. I was in the shower and she was in the guest bedroom getting dressed and doing her hair. Well the husband found out about it and came over. He was a big, manly MP in the Army so was a pretty scary dude. She came running into the bathroom screaming that he was there. I put a towel around me, grabbed the pistol that was kept in the drawer by the bed, and met him at the door. I invited him in and we sat down in the guest bedroom to chat. He was very nervous at having a gun pointed at him. I asked him if he knew why I let him in the house he said no so I proceeded to tell him that in TX if he is in my home and tries to attack me I am legally justified in shooting him and would get away with it. He sat very still and talked very calmly to me and then left peacefully never to bother me again.
