Are you allowed to use deadly force when someone breaks into your home? When are you lawfully allowed to shoot someone who has illegally entered your home? These questions have come to the forefront of discussion in Southern California as several residents have recently shot people who had or were attempting to break into their home.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that over the past decade, more people feel like they need to own a gun to feel safe inside their homes. Gun sales have skyrocketed, especially in recent months in San Bernardino County.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise addressed this current issue in an in-depth article, and they called upon “prominent criminal defense attorney” Paul Wallin of Wallin & Klarich, A Law Corporation to help provide answers to this question from a legal prospective.

Attorney Wallin has been successfully representing clients in weapons-related cases for more than 30 years. His experience in this matter led the Press-Enterprise to Wallin & Klarich as an expert in this field.

Attorney Wallin spoke to the Press-Enterprise regarding California’s “Castle Doctrine” and other weapons laws that all gun owners should be familiar with. To view the advise from Attorney Wallin, read the story on The Riverside Press-Enterprise’s website.
