    Castle Doctrine for Va ???

    With all the gun legislation being introduced in Richmond, does anyone know if a Castle Doctrine is included?

    I think a Castle Doctrine will be good for not only permit holders, but all gun owners in the Commonwealth.

    Yes there is one included.

    HB 854, Delegate Morefield, Castle Doctrine bill that protects a citizen who has to use force, including deadly force, either inside his residence or anywhere he can legally be, from a civil lawsuit. Because of the bill’s wording requiring “proportionate force,” which puts too much “Monday morning quarterbacking” into the equation, this bill is supported, instead of strongly supported.
