Gambling with baddies in Vegas

MY friends are aghast when I explain that in Ireland only the baddies have guns -- the goodies just hope for the best.
In Las Vegas you shoot to kill anyone who invades your home.
The only time I remember any debate on this issue was when a homeowner, having dispatched one burglar, pursued his partner for almost a block. He then shot the fleeing intruder in the back. The police thought that since the burglar posed no immediate threat to the homeowner, maybe the homeowner should be charged with something.
