    Castle Doctrine & Stand Your Ground

    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but this is an interesting article about " Castle Doctrine & Stand Your Ground" use of your firearm,posted by one of my Canadian friends, but also includes a map of the US.

    I'm a newbie on this forum, just thought I'd post.

    PS - Glad I live in Washington State so far when it comes to gun laws, concealed carry and home, personal and property defense.

    Welcome, very nice map! I wish Ohio was green! Duty to retreat is arguable as it pertains to safely retreat. I am not turning my back on a BG because I have a duty to retreat. I also am not going to try to run away backwards, I am not that coordinated.

    In the same boat here in Minnesota. I'm sticking with the 'I was in fear for my life' mantra...

    IS a "Stand Your Ground" statute redundant if there is no statutory duty to retreat?

    I like that FL made it pretty simple: You can use deadly force anywhere you are allowed to legally be--which is pretty much anywhere where CC isn't prohibited. Home, car, public park: no difference, no need to retreat.

    Good question, but I think "Stand your Ground" laws clear up any of the mud..

    Hopefully next legislative session we can get Castle Doctrine pushed through here in VA.

    Yep - I'm a fan of castle doctrine and stand your ground. Pretty much anything else tells the criminal that he can do whatever he wants and citizens are all fair game.

    Just imagine what would happen in Mexico if they suddenly introduced CCW and castle doctrine. The drug lords would be in serious trouble, but since they run the government, that will obviously never happen.

    It's nice to be in Tennessee! You know, looking at that map reminded me of the presidential election electoral map. Do you see any relationships?

    Minnesota is pretty bad, they tried to get a better law passed earlier this year but it didn't make it this go around.

    No.
    I do not believe this statute was written necessarily for those who are protecting themselves. I believe it was written as a reminder to the government that the citizens have retained the right to protect themselves. The government has a habit of ignoring laws written to limit its power. This was just a reminder.
