I agree totally with the law and its intention but common sense seems to be in short order these days and too many use it as an excuse to pull their gun and fire.
I'd like to see the evidence on that comment. I haven't seen any real evidence that since these castle laws have been passed that a lot of people have "used it as an exuse to pull their gun." If anything, the statistics I have studied show that the more a citizen has rights in reguards to firearms, the less the crime. While I have heard people talk about how they would shoot someone over this or that matter on boards like this and other boards, I haven't actually seen it happen. I think most of these people are just talking out their butts.
