Kill 'em where they stand
Mike C. sent this link to a piece in Minnesota about their moves to expand the Castle Doctrine.
Personally, I believe that no person ever has a duty or obligation to back up in the face of a violent threat, regardless of where one may be standing.
Since all of LEO and most jurors would disagree, killing a bad guy on the street and continuing on my way would probably cause problems for making the next mortgage payment.
Minnesota is moving to incorporate more common sense back into human inter-personal engagements. Believe it or not, there was a time in American history when everyone understood that bad guys deserve to die wherever they may be encountered.
Of course, the Political Class and their muscle (LEO) think this is a bad idea.
Here's the link.
