That was quite an exchange and I can say the this subject has been discussed. "It was not only merely discussed, it was really most sincerely discussed" a Munchkin coroner might say.

I think a reasonable person could read it either way.

"Committing or attempting to commit a burglary, robbery, and other felony involving the use of force."

I take it as "involving the use of force" clarifying the kind burglary or robbery that counts.

If not then there is no sense for two separate sections for force and deadly force. The deadly force section covers it alone the way you interpret it.

"However, if I said, "I allow cigarettes, cigars, and pipes that only contain cloves instead of tobacco on my porch." I would expect your cigarette to be a Djarum (clove cigarette)."

Ahhh. Yes. But you can allow lots of thing simultaneouly. This is in reference to a crime and or is used because any one of them can be commiteed. If "and" was used it would imply you had to commit all three.

"Committing or attempting to commit a burglary, robbery, and other felony involving the use of force..."

Right?

To me, "or" is a distinguishing word.

If I said, "I allow cigarettes, cigars, or pipes that only contain cloves instead of tobacco on my porch."

I sure wouldn't be pissed when you whipped out a Marlboro.

However, if I said, "I allow cigarettes, cigars, and pipes that only contain cloves instead of tobacco on my porch." I would expect your cigarette to be a Djarum (clove cigarette).

"Would you read that as I like ham sandwiches? Or just sandwiches with peanut butter?"

Then you should have used the conjunction "and" for it to be inclusive.

I would read that as you enjoy all sammiches, including ham.
