MO Burglarizing Cars


Welcome members and fellow gun owners. In the last Members Voice video, our member Tyler witnessed a criminal breaking into
his car. Tyler drew his gun and the bad guys ran
away. The legal questions started pouring in,
and members, you wanted to know your legal rights in your state. So here’s
your U.S. Law Shield Independent Program Attorney to give you insight on what the
law says. Hi, I’m John Schleiffarth, Independent
Program Attorney for U.S. Law Shield in Missouri. If you find that someone is
burglarizing your car in your driveway, the first and best thing to do is call
the police. Legally you can use force to protect your property, but you can’t use
deadly force. You can use enough force that’s justified to protect your stuff.
You can detain the bad guy until the police arrive. However you got to be
careful that you don’t use too much force. You still can’t use deadly force
to hold someone until the police come, so be careful and the best thing to do is
still to call the police and let them do that job. Whether your car is parked in your private driveway, or whether it’s in a
public parking lot, you’re really in the same position in terms of what kind of
force you can use to protect things from being stolen out of your car. If you’re
in a position where someone is stealing things out of your car, you can use a
reasonable amount of force to stop that from happening, but you can’t use deadly
force unless your life or someone else’s life is being threatened. Educating you
is the cornerstone of U.S. Law Shield. Thank you for being a part of our family.
