#1 So will a reasonable belief of serious bodily injury or death to self or others be the standard you want to apply to civilians and law enforcement,
#2 Will it be that deadly force is not authorized unless the person has a firearm or explosive device visible prior to the use of deadly force.
That means that if someone breaks into a house at night:
- Under #1 the homeowner can exercise their 2nd Amendment right to defend themselves when a reasonable person would perceive a threat.
- Under #2 the homeowner cannot exercise their 2nd Amendment right unless they turn on the lights and the person breaking into their home clearly has a firearm visible.
