My hope would be that if my gun was used in the proper manner it would be returned to me.

In SC our Castle Doctrine states that the police can't take our weapons or arrest us if used for protection. Also we can't be sued in civil court. If SC allows a civil suit then SC has to pick up the tab.

Good story. Thanks for posting it. Why am I not surprised the Brady campaign is against this. Anyway, I was glad that TN passed a castle doctrine last year. They also have the point to protect against civil liability.

It really is sad the law makers of this land have to give us rights we allready had.

Missouri just enacted castle doctrine, in July 2007. I along with many others was pleased by Governor Matt Blunt's action by signing it into law. :)

I find that news media (and often others) get Castle Doctrine mixed up with Extended Castle Doctrine.
Normal Castle Doctrine says you have no duty to retreat from your home. Extended Caste Doctrine says you have no duty to retreat from any place you can legally be.

Arkansas has normal Castle Doctrine, but we still must attempt to retreat if outside the home.

Thanks for posting ronwill. Texas past ours last year. It is just plain good sense. I guess that is why the Brady Bunch is against it. They have no sense. They will only be happy when only the thugs have guns.

Ishi, can you verify that for me? I travel through Arkansas on a somewhat regular basis (can't carry concealed since they don't accept a Georgia CCW) and reading HD 1027 appears a lot like the one passed in Florida and here in Georgia.

Thank God I'm alive!
Peter Hamm of the Brady Center laments "Do we want to kill every 16-year-old kid we find stealing a car stereo?" As far as I can tell, no responsible gun owner would kill someone unless their lives were in jeopardy, which would be the case only if their home or car was broken into while they are in it. Sure I'd be pissed if someone stole my car stereo, but I have never felt my life to be in danger from someone stealing it, either (unless of course I was actually in my car when the theft happened, then all bets are off).

I posted nearly all the relevant arkansas state codes on the Arkansas forum. The Castle Doctrine is there as well. There is some momentum for the Extended Castle Doctrine here, but it's not law yet.

I used to think that it applied to a person's Automobile as well as the home, but now I can't find the code for that. Maybe I was mistaken!

That's such emotionally manipulative garbage. I know of no law in any state that would allow such an action.

It's like "one child killed by a firearm accident is too many!". One child killed by a dog is too many! One child killed by slipping in the tub is too many! etc etc. Fact is, one would be a shockingly low number, and considering how many people die from all kinds of causes every year, it's entirely acceptable. There's an argument that will turn the PTA mothers blue.
