Hi. I have a hypothetical question that hopefully I'll never need the answer to. I own a home and I live there with my wife and two kids. If I wake up in the night and find someone in my house with a knife or gun can I shoot them? I was told there's some crazy law in Massachusetts that says I have to try to escape or try to retreat from the house rather than trying to defend myself and my family. That can't be right because how can I defend my family by escaping? I'd have to try and run around and get all my family together and then get out.
