Then I put the loaded mag into the gun and slide the receiver back, loading a cartridge into the chamber. I might also turn the safety off. All this will take me a few minutes because, I'm not rushing it, I'm just prepping for the worst. At the same time I may yell out my window "I'VE CALLED THE COPS AND THEY ARE ON THE WAY!" That right there may scare the perps away. If that does scare them away, when the cops arrive, I file a police report and then collect insurance, thank you very much.

If that doesn't scare the perps off. I secure my house and wait for the cops. Now if the perps try to break in, then I have a right to shoot. But I'm not going to endanger my future with some frivolous lawsuit because I'm Captain Blaster gun guy. As another poster said, the perps probably have more rights than me, the victim. Will I shoot one of these perps if they are dumb enough to try and come into my house, yep. Will I go outside and initiate a shooting, nope.
Oh. Come. On.

THEY'RE EGGING MY CAR AND THROWING MAYONNAISE ON IT AND I'M AFRAID FOR MY LIFE!!!!

And we covered the insurance aspect earlier, many people don't have their cars fully covered and even if they do there's this thing called a "deductible" which means money out of their pocket.
