Default Castle Doctrine "Stand your ground"

Imo, this is good. This is very good. Simply because 1 of the things that criminals feed on is fear. If they don't know ur carrying & u retreat, its just gonna give them a rush & make them feel superior. Not to mention that the rush has further been planted in his mind that he's a big scary bad azz. Oh yeah, & he's still running free to do the same to someone else. I say fight fire with fire. No surrender no retreat & most of all no prisoners. I feel that every US state should adopt the castle doctrine & stop restricting the rights of law abiding citizens to protect themselves.

Well, those are my thoughts, what's yours?

Meh, the only difference between castle doctrine and no castle doctrine is whether or not I have to dig a hole in the backyard afterwards.

Thanks for saving me potential work, I guess.

Exact sentiment here. Also another thing to remember, as I have been lately, are the infallable words of Henry David Thoreau who said in his essay 'Civil Disobedience' ~ "That government is best which governs least.”

I was said to me by a British Captain "Sebbie if you are going to carry a gun you going to have to carry a shovel." The bad guys are everywhere.

For my house, I plan to use enough propellant in the round to ensure the intended targe will reach Mars.

Every state needs a shot first ask questions later.

It's one of the few laws today that actually gives the power to the citizens.

The intent of "Stand Your Ground" and "Castle Doctrine" laws is to remove the burden of proof from the intended victim...IE, the CCW holder or home owner who was forced to shoot by the violent acts or intentions of the recently wounded/deceased.

They are not meant to grant any police powers to the public and I would caution anyone who thinks otherwise to look at George Zimmerman. Personally, I believe his story and think he acted within the law but that did not stop a politically motivated prosecutor from pursuing him in a Stand your Ground State...

In the end I'm confident the law will vindicate his actions but I'm not itching to walk a mile in his shoes unless I'm given no choice but to fire.

Tack
