    Another Thread to Tug On

    So I found this article, which specifically mentions Florida, but since WA falls within this category as a state with a Castle Doctrine, we would be affected as well.

    Now, I'm no fan of Government grants and funding in many cases so this specific threat from the left itself means nothing.

    But looking at the long game if something like this passed then states could start taking away laws that allow us to defend ourselves instead of running and hiding to try and get back their precious bloated government pork.

    What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

    I believe in freedom, Mr. Lipwig. Not many people do, although they will, of course, protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based.

    The freedom to succeed goes hand in hand with the freedom to fail. - Going Postal, Terry Pratchett

    Sorry, I normally spend all my time in the WA section. Didn't even think to look elsewhere.

    Since when did WA get the Castle Doctrine.
    If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.
    --- Arkansas Supreme Court, Wilson v. State (1878)

    State law actually goes beyond castle doctrine. Permits the use of force, up to & including deadly, even to prevent a felony in one's presence.
