States That Have Stand Your Ground Laws - FindLaw

I'm glad to see hat Nevada is also one of the Stand Your Ground States. There is also a long standing tradition in Nevada of burying problems in a hole in the desert.

I talked to CCW Safe about using a gun to stop a person from stealing my truck at night. He said you can't use deadly force to protect property. This scenario could open a can of worms and going to jail for any number of years isn't worth it to keep my truck from being stolen.

Call the cops and let the thief know the cops are on their way. If you approach with a gun then you might then be considered the aggressor and the thief was then afraid for his life. The old belief that anyone trespassing at night, even in your home, is grounds for using deadly force is not so cut and dried as some might be led to think. 12 people might think differently than you do.
CCW is wrong as stated when mine got broken into in Tyler officer told me I had every right to shoot someone to protect my property. And no you don't have to drag em inside.

I purchased CCW Safe. You can get it for you and your wife,covers criminal and civil law suits,bail ect.. you can even get 1 million pay out in a civil suit if you lose with NO out of pocket expense!
This was my choice. There are some good comments above.
Good luck on your search. If you carry a gun or have one for home defense you NEED some kind of insurance! JMO. It has been said that you may never be struck by lightning, but people ARE struck by lightning.
For a small monthly fee no matter which insurance you get, you WILL sleep better knowing you wonít go bankrupt if lightning strikes.

Be SAFE and shoot often!
Thank you so much Execpro,

I will call and get CCW Safe as well for my family.

I don't want to overthink it.

In some state, i.e. Arizona, if your shooting is found to be justified, you cannot be sued by the perp or his family. Just FYI.

Is this true? Sounds weird to me. I shoot someone breaking in my home, and I go to jail.

Thanks
You have been given some great advice here. I will add that besides buying (and reading) Massad Ayoob books, take his MAG 40 class! It is 40 hours long and you will walk away from the class with a solid understanding of defending yourself with lethal force. Mr. Ayoob is the Master of this topic and his course is second none! You will benefit greatly and he will answer all of your questions.
Here's a link if you decide you want to get trained:

https://massadayoobgroup.com/events/category/mag40/

Stay safe!

Your life (including your financial situation) will almost certainly change forever, and not for the better....

Donít get brain surgery done in a brothel, and donít get legal advice in a gun shop. That way you will never end up with a lobotomy and in jail.
