here's a link to the whole story:Quote:
You have the legal right to choose to defend yourself at home. But what the NRA is asking for here is way too much. They want anyone to be able to pull a gun anywhere anytime they “feel threatened” (yes, it’s that loose), and not have to face any consequences whatsoever. That means no legal consequences if the person they shoot is unarmed. No legal (or civil) consequences if they accidentally shoot a bystander. No legal consequences at all if ( as has already happened in Colorado), they chase a man down and shoot him in the back as he is driving away. No legal consequences at all for pulling a gun. And that goes way too far.
I can't stand these kind of people. They talk before they even read the law. Pull your gun on someone that hasn't threatened your life and see how fast you go to jail. All the castle doctrine does is make it legal to protect yourself at all times not just your home without getting sued by the piece of crap that's threatening you in the first place. That in my opinion is one of the best self defense laws on the books. I don't really see how it will cause any problems if people actually read it and understand what it means. The problems stem from people like this that tell people it means something totally different than what it does. Just my .02 cents.
