Default short answer: yes.

if someone gets hurt on your property, regardless of whethere you invited them there or not, you are negligent.

remember the story of the burglar falling through someone's skylight? yes, he sued. yes he won. We live in a fscked up world.

Default Unfortunately, true. If the perp lives, he gets your house.

Default Yes. You cannot under any circumstances booby-trap your property...

in some states, you can't even shoot somebody who breaks into your house. Fortunately, I don't live in one of those states.

Default Florida has the castle doctrine, if you break into my house/apt., I can legally shoot you.

Default deep ****.

I assume you're talking about a spring-loaded shotgun pointing at the door, for purposes of this discussion.

1) you can't use deadly force in defense of property.
2) you are in it for at least 3rd degree murder (reckless homicide) because you set in motion a machine that will kill the first person to open the door (the device can't tell the difference between a burglar and a fireman).

Default As long as you shoot him in your house, you are fine.

Maybe he fell down the stairs first, but if you shoot him quick enough they will rule shooting as cuase of death.

Default yes, you can....

you can personally shoot me, however if i get hurt on your property and you are not there, i can still sue you for negligence. in other words, no booby-trapping.
