Clayton Cramer reports an interesting newspaper report from Romania. It reports a defensive gun use, and also that the country has adopted a version of the "make my day" law, with a legal presumption that shooting a burglar is self-defense. Clayton also suggests that some European might want to start a Euro version of his civilian self-defense blog.
Read the list of places where self-defense may be employed. Last, but most noticeable, is "a piece of enclosed land".
The Romanians aren't copying us, they are WAY AHEAD of us. We can't use deadly force to defend our land, fenced or not.
On the other hand, the penal code seems to say nothing about defending one's life on public lands or in public places, but maybe Clayton didn't presrnt all of the applicable section.
