Customers in a Burger King in Tulsa got more action than they bargained for last night. A bad guy with a crowbar tried to rob what he thought was an easy mark. It didn’t turn out that way, the “easy mark” was legally carrying a gun.
Oklahoma has broad protection for their citizens with respect to their right of self-defense.
State statutes expanded in 2006 and 2011 to increase residents’ liberties in defending themselves, especially for home intrusions. Oklahoma residents can fight back with deadly force if they believe a home intruder may physically attack them, even if they don’t fear for their life.
Essentially, if you break into a home in Oklahoma, there’s a good chance you’ll end up dead and the shooter will get no charges.
Like my home state, Arizona.
The good guy expects no charges to be filed, the bad guy is lucky to be alive and headed to jail.
