    Sec. 9.31. SELF-DEFENSE. (a) Except as provided in Subsection (b), a person is justified in using force against another when and to the degree the actor reasonably believes the force is immediately necessary to protect the actor against the other's use or attempted use of unlawful force. The actor's belief that the force was immediately necessary as described by this subsection is presumed to be reasonable if the actor:
    (1) knew or had reason to believe that the person against whom the force was used:
    (A) unlawfully and with force entered, or was attempting to enter unlawfully and with force, the actor's occupied habitation, vehicle, or place of business or employment;
    (B) unlawfully and with force removed, or was attempting to remove unlawfully and with force, the actor from the actor's habitation, vehicle, or place of business or employment;

    Works for me! But sadly you just know the "victim's" family would sue in this scenario, even tho their family member would have died while committing a felony. I've seen it more than once in the news.

    Sorry that had to happen

    Take this as a warning

    you had better move the car,

    Before it gets stolen

    Their is a guy I know online that has a boat he paid 100k for,

    And he has this GPS tracker in his boat,

    He confirmed its a good quality unit and works

    It requires a monthly fee of around $15 tho, So you can track your vehicle Via your computer and let the police know where your car is,

    Insurance doesn't cover Mods

    Some people have 10k or more in mods,

    Insurance only covers replacement or current market value,

    Prevention is the best Method

    I disagree. My insurance covers my soon to be 20k+ in investments. You just need to have it stipulated in your clause.

    Same with jewelry or firearms in your house. If your standard home owners policy doesn't cover your valued items, you have a separate clause written.

    You CANNOT prevent a thief from stealing your car. If they know what they are doing and they want it bad enough...they WILL get it. It's that simple.
