My question involves criminal law for the state of: West Virginia
My brother in law asked me what I would do if an armed burglar broke into my house while I was at home. I said that I would shoot him. Obvious answer to me. Anyway, He says that if I shoot a burglar in my own home in self defense that the police will confiscate my gun and it will not be returned. Can anyone tell me if this is true or not? That just doesn't seem right.
