    Stand your ground works in Florida. It would be nice if Wisconsin would catch on one of these years. Make sure to read the comments. Most are pretty good.

    Thumbs up It is called the "Castle Doctrine". I wish the news would report it correctly.

    I lived in Florida when we passed this law and implemented it on 1 October, 2005. It was an amazing thing to see put in place. Not only does it remove the duty to run and hide it stops the criminals and their families from suing in civil court. Every state should have the Florida style Castle Doctrine.

    Yep Justifiable Homicide is what it is. Hope none ever have to have that happen.

    Lesson #1. Don't bring a fist to a gunfight.
    When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
