Indiana is first in the United States with this law….

Police officers in Indiana are upset over a new law allowing residents to use deadly force against public servants, including law enforcement officers, who unlawfully enter their homes. It was signed by Republican Governor Mitch Daniels in March.

The first of its kind in the United States, the law was adopted after the state Supreme Court went too far in one of its rulings last year, according to supporters. The case in question involved a man who assaulted an officer during a domestic violence call. The court ruled that there was “no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers.”

I think this is a good law. I mean, I own my own house and if ANYONE came in unlawfully, I would shoot them and ask questions later. And if a policeman came in unlawfully and didn’t announce who they were, they would deserve to be shot.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I support the police when they are following the laws that they are sworn to uphold. I have the utmost respect for them. But, just like them, if someone comes in my house unannounced and I don’t know they are coming, I have a Constitutional right to defend myself against something that may hurt me. And if they don’t announce themselves, I don’t know what their intentions are or who they are. Just like a policeman has to be careful when approaching a vehicle they stop cause they have no idea what is waiting for them. After all it could be a person with a gun pointed at them. Same goes for my home. The law states:

In enacting this section, the general assembly finds and declares that it is the policy of this state to recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant. By reaffirming the long standing right of a citizen to protect his or her home against unlawful intrusion, however, the general assembly does not intend to diminish in any way the other robust self defense rights that citizens of this state have always enjoyed. Accordingly, the general assembly also finds and declares that it is the policy of this state that people have a right to defend themselves and third parties from physical harm and crime. The purpose of this section is to provide the citizens of this state with a lawful means of carrying out this policy.

So, HOORAY for Indiana in passing this law. We have to read the law, and note that the key word here is “UNLAWFUL INTRUSION”. If the police want to come in my home, they are welcome, but announce yourselves and come in legally. That is all we ask. So Indiana is the first state in the Union to pass this law. Good for you Governor Daniels.

If you want to read about the law I found it at: All Gov. Once there, click on the NEWS link and it is on the page there under TOP STORIES. I tried to put the links in here but they wouldn’t work, so they are in the story at All Gov.

May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.

    Great to see common sense again. Piece by piece we will fully restore this nation from the damage Obama has inflicted upon us and hope to see him and his entire gang is investigated and brought to justice. No more “new Tone” no more Mr. nice guy when the Right returns to the driver seat we need to say what needs to be said and do what needs doing without fear of the media’s reaction and get it done! We have no choice, our kid’s depend on us to do the right thing and we owe it to them. It is our duty to retake and restore America. Go Romney!
    reply from Robert: Great to see another new reader, and thanks for the comment. I have been seeing with the comments and the new readers that the people have awakened to the mess that Obama has made, and is blaming on Bush. Like you said, “Go Romney!”.

    It is not often that I contribute here. Hopefully, that will change. I have contributed to several conservative sites over many months. Seeking others of a like mind. The people one encounters on such a journey run the gamut. No doubt, most of you have had the same experience. We’re losing our beloved country to a Marxist President and the people who are stupid enough to follow him and support his radical ideas. The Governor of Indiana gives us the first hint that not all Americans are really that dumb. With all my heart I hope ordinary Americans are watching this site and others like it and realize finally, that we are in real trouble as a country. We need a solution to this madness. It can come from almost any direction. I would choose awareness. An awareness of the fact that what is going on right now in America is an absolute abomination of what our Founders laid out for us. If we all steer a course for that idea, I think everything will work out just fine. The esteemed Governor of Indiana seems to have done just that.
    reply from Robert: I thank you. That is what this site is all about. I search the news and the internet for stuff that I deem important to the future of this country. I am proud to live in Indiana where we have such a governor. But there are others. Walker in Wisconsin is one. He is embroiled in battles against the liberal left and has come out of it so far, but they are still working to “dethrone” him, so to speak. People have to watch what is going on. As you say and as I have said many times, this nation is in trouble. It’s time to take it back from the liberal left and the Republicans who can’t do the right things. Maybe find someone from the grassroots to run for office. That is happening all over too. Thanks for reading, and welcome to the Wise Conservatism family.

    Robert, keep plugging away as you have done. It takes time for people to wake up and pay attention. I hesitate to comment too much. People get bored easily. I hope more people come on board and thus create a rich environment for conversation. There is much to lose and much to gain.
    reply from Robert: Comment as often as you like. I keep wondering why I have the readership but not many comments. I love getting comments but ran this blog at another site for a year and a half and never got a single comment. Glad they are coming now. I also got the idea for replying to the comments from a blog titled “Poor Republican” as he replied to his comments. I thought it was a great idea.

    Robert, when people take the time to read a blog and reply to it, they like to know they are not in an empty room. A response from the person who originated the comment or topic means a lot. That’s why it works. If I could offer a sincere criticism though, of not only your blog, but others, is that the conversation is totally controlled by the person who originated the blog. What I mean by that, is that I have no way of making a comment on a different topic. All I can do is respond to what you post and to the responses by others to your post. The real conversations about current events take place on sites where people can make comments about anything on their mind. Personal blogs are destined for failure because of their very nature. If you get to the level of Michelle Malkin, then of course you have no problem. Few people achieve that. Take a risk. Find a way to allow the people who follow you to post their own comments about the myriad of concerns that worry all of us. Lots of folks out there worried about our country. Give them a chance and they’ll tell you what they think. Like I always say, it’s worth a shot.
    reply from Robert I have tried to find a way to do that. I want to try to find other authors to write here, but haven’t been able to figure out how to do that. I own this domain, so I should be able to do that, but so far I haven’t been able to do that. Got to get ahold of WordPress and ask about it through them. Hopefully they will give me an answer on this. That is a good idea mitch. Thanks.

    If they don’t give you an answer, we will find out how to do it on our own. How hard can it be?
    reply from Robert: It shouldn’t be too hard.
