    republicans refer to them as "Stand Your Ground".  Depending on the state (although ALEC has done a good job of homogenizing them), you can basically do exactly what you describe.  Even worse, is they are typically written in such a way, that plenty of wingnuts feel license to misinterpret them as much as they misinterpret the Constitution or Bible--and in this case, the perception of being within the law is damaging enough, as prosecution won't bring a victim back to life.
