Self-defense Is Legal in Virginia

I suspected that it was. No charges for Woodbridge woman who shot, killed armed suspect at her home

The homeowner, identified as a 44-year-old woman, reported to police that she was leaving her house when a masked man armed with a handgun approached her from the side of the home.

The victim, who was also armed at the time, shot the individual as they approached the front door of her residence. She was not injured.

So how is this better if she had been disarmed, and had to fend off a physical attack. It was clear that he wasn't there for any good purpose.

And the DA moved at lightspeed to make this determination. The shooting took place on July 22nd.

The following statement leads me to believe that this was a domestic violence incident, but there is not enough detail provided to say that is the case.

Police say the incident was not random. Following an investigation and consultation with the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, the shooting was ruled to be justified based on self-defense.

Self-defense is a Human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
