Interesting perspective here, even to this non-gun owner. I saw this on Twitter.

Excerpts:

"You will be surprised how many people are misled by “armchair instructors,” also known as “keyboard warriors.”

When it comes to break-ins, we can do much to prevent them. But using a firearm to defend your property is usually against the law. (Some states have specific laws on the books that allow this in certain situations.)

The difference between home and property changes once the home is breached. If you are staring at a creeper with binoculars from across the street or from your flower garden, remember, it is just property they are trespassing on. Call the police and just be a great witness.

And on the other hand, when it comes to our lives and the lives of our loved ones, that question will be the last thing on our minds, that is where having some kind of self-defense liability insurance to help us out, even if we have the Castle Doctrine in our state. We all have homeowners and car insurance to help when something goes wrong. You should include self-defense liability insurance as well."
