Because unless they are on your property, it is not a direct threat to your life and property

edit: I am getting a lot of downvotes but what I am saying is consistent with what happens in court. I know you don't want it to be like this, but legally, if you start killing people, the government will not go easy on you. The government does not legally see it from your perspective.

This is incorrect. An invader need not necessarily fire at you to justify a direct threat of life or property. This is in fact established law. Does this specific situation measure up? I'm not sure. But it doesn't change that your premise is already settled law and your statement is false.

The real question is, do these people constitute a threat to self or the nation? Given that they have been illegally voting, that answer appears to be a resounding yes. Does that hold legal water? I dunno. But it's not without precedent.

Does that hold legal water?

Extremely doubtful. Especially because the national guard hasn't even been deployed (as far as I know)

So it'd be illegal to shoot an invading army unless they started to use guns against us?

A military force? No. But in this case, very likely, yes. I know that isn't popular here because it isn't what people want to hear. But practical law doesn't take sides of people who "take things into their own hands"

[Sarcasm alert] Yes. Very clearly that if an invading army simply comes in and demands your property, land, and country, it is illegal to protect yourself and your nation because some people might cry.

If the law doesn't recognize as an invading army, yes. I'm not saying that it isn't but how it is seen by the legal authorities are what determine your fate.

Could a "citizen's arrest" apply to this? Are there any provisions in texas law for using violence to stop a crime in progress? Civilians are allowed to detain shoplifters on such a criteria. Might be worth paying a couple hundred bucks to a TX criminal attorney to get a definite answer on what texas law does and does not allow.

I'm more then an individual. I make up a part of my nation, and my nation is me. It is in my interests that my nation is protected.
