Castle doctrine

A Castle Doctrine (also known as a Castle Law or a Defense of Habitation Law) is an American legal doctrine arising from English common law[1] that designates one's place of residence (or, in some states, any place legally occupied, such as one's car or place of work) as a place in which one enjoys protection from illegal trespassing and violent attack. It then goes on to give a person the legal right to use deadly force to defend that place (his "castle"), and any other innocent persons legally inside it, from violent attack or an intrusion which may lead to violent attack. In a legal context, therefore, use of deadly force which actually results in death may be defended as justifiable homicide under the Castle Doctrine.

I'm with you. Well, maybe not the Jason bit... :-). I'd scared, shaking, and in a rage which would keep my trembling trigger finger going until the slide locked open. If that doesn't do it, I have an over flowing ammo can. Heehee.

I guess i should have clarified what i considered a light-hearted comment; the "help you drag the body in" comment was from a local sheriff in the mid 1980's.

In some states, a permit is not required to carry. In MS, people are allowed to carry in their car, their home, and their business (not sure if they must be the business owner), without a permit.

The castle doctrine is a wonderful thing.
