OK: No Charges for Man who Defended Self and Home with AR-15 Clone, Killing Three

Very strange wording in this reporting. All states allow citizens to shoot someone if they reasonably believe they are a deadly threat, especially in the victims home. Typical bad reporting on the law of self defense.  You can read the reference cited here. It is considerably different than the last paragraph quoted below.

Wagoner County Sheriff Chris Elliott said he supports the decision not to charge Peters.

"We support the right of our citizens, the right to bear arms and to defend their homes," Elliott said. "In this such case, we feel strongly that's what took place here."

Oklahoma is one of 24 states which have laws allowing citizens to shoot someone if they believe the person threatens their safety, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
