    I heard State Representative Dean Kaufert introduced a castle doctrine bill in early January. I believe the bill might be LRB 0392 but I haven't had a chance to confirm.

    Pester the legislators to write a Castle Doctrine that extends to your automobile -AND - "no duty to retreat from a place you may lawfully be" law. The wording of such laws may be found on the Utah Department of Public Safety Website. See link:

    I think that is covered in Beard V U.S. which you can read if you click on the "My Castle Doctrine Law" in my sig. I know there are some places that require you to retreat, even in your home IIRC, but I would think a Supreme Court ruling would trump any state/local laws requiring you to retreat. If I'm wrong on this fell free to chime in.

    There is no "Castle doctrine" in Wisconsin. One can "stand the ground" however, and it applies to being anywhere you are lawfully present. There is no legal obligation to retreat in Wisconsin, however the courts have ruled that if a person uses force in opposition to an unlawful interference with their person, the opportunity to retreat can be considered by a jury to weigh whether the amount of force used was justifiable. Of course that is only one of a number of factors that they will consider when determining whether the amount of force was appropriate.

    They still need to change it. If some BG is willing to commit a felony and break into your house while you and your family sleep, then you should have the right to let him know that you will not be a victim. If you were to run and he somehow hurt one of your family members, people would have to live with that. Law or no law someone breaks into my house they are getting the force needed to stop them dead in their tracks, no pun intended.

    I guess I have never understood why a federal castle doctrine was never passed. It seems pretty cut and dried to me, all they would have to say is "If you get killed while commiting a crime, consider it an occupational hazard."

    Exclamation

    We do need a Castle Doctrine in Wisconsin. I was almost arrested a few years back for pointing my SG at an intruder in my home. The detective told me I broke the law. Right. I asked him what he would have done. He told me "We will just let it go at that" and never mentioned it again. (Since he is a police officer he could use his gun without fear of being arrested....nice double standard). That was the last time I talked to the police and I never will again.
