I believe you have to prove that you felt your life was in danger

That's the usual criteria-you can shoot someone to protect life, but not property,in general. Problem is, courts and juries may reach a different conclusion than you did on whether your life was truly endangered. Something to thing about - it seems that almost every time the police shoot someone, they are accused of shooting them improperly. Some of those shootings surely are justified and necessary,it would seem to me.
