    Castle Doctrine

    Well we finally got the Castle Doctrine passed and it comes in effect today. At least we are going in the right direction.


    Chapel Hill, N.C. — The idea that a man's home is his castle dates to the 18th century. In law, it is codified as the right to defend one's home from intruders without fear of being arrested. North Carolina lawmakers recently voted to expand that right.

    Paul Valone, president of gun rights group Grass Roots North Carolina, knows guns and the Castle Doctrine. He wrote the original law currently on the books.

    “The important thing to note is that Castle Doctrine is not a make my day law,” he said.

    Under current state law, before homeowners can use deadly force against someone, they must have a reasonable belief that the intruder intends to kill or seriously hurt them.

    Effective Dec. 1, gun owners will have less guesswork.

    Firefighter won’t be charged in fatal shooting

    "The Mountain Island Monitor’s news partner WBTV, reported that a new law, the Castle Doctrine, may have helped the firefighter avoid charges. The recently enacted law offers property owners protection from prosecution when they use deadly force to save their lives."

    I'm definitely glad we have this now.

    I know it's slightly off topic, but I see in the article that it talks about state parks and concealed carry. I've also seen it posted here on the forums a couple of times that it's both OC and CC in state parks now. I'm just curious as to which is the right answer, as I happen to spend a little bit of time in a state park nearby.

    YOu may be confusing my gamelands post with state parks. State parks are CC only. Gamelands are OC or CC. National parks are OC or CC in NC. State parks FAQ on firearms.

    The CD worked well for the teenager in Henderson too. Though it's unlikely he would have been charged before either. I think the fireman really got helped out.

    I do remember that post, and I started thinking the same thing for a minute. But then I started going back through posts and I found the one I was looking for. I'm sorry Dreamer! lol, I'm not calling you out on it, I swear. I was just looking for clarity lol. But here it is http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...95#post1657295 Post #1110 "We can CC and OC in State Parks"

    I think there was some assumption that you could OC with a CHP. But the state parks have specified CC.
