Not every state allows the use of deadly force to protect yourself in the event of home invasions so it is vital to know what your local laws are. It’s also important to recognize that not every state’s law will be the same. Your state may have similar laws that may be referred to as something else, such as the stand your ground law or no duty to retreat law. It is important to note that these similar laws will be treated differently than the Colorado Make My Day Law and those differences can mean you could go to jail if you get it wrong so check with an attorney in your state to make sure you understand it correctly. Another important factor is the timing of the case, as there is a limit on the amount of time that can pass before charges cannot be brought against you which is outlined in Colorado’s statute of limitations for criminal charges.
