    What is the Castle Doctrine.

    The Castle Doctrine is a self-defense provision that allows for the use of force, including deadly force, within one's home.

    Based on the English Common Law provision that one's home is one's "castle", the Castle Doctrine is a popular yet controversial law that allows for a person whose home is under attack to use force upon the attacker.

    Yes, but some states do not recognize this. If you live in one of those states, you will be at the mercy of whoever breaks in. We as individuals need to ensure our elected officials know where we stand on the 2nd amendment. The current administration is doing everything it can to flush this amendment. Just take a look at the UN small arms treaty Obama and Clinton are trying to ram through. As a resident of the great State of Texas, I can have a loaded gun next to my bed, and if anyone comes into my house unannounced, I can shoot them and kill them and not worry about legal crap from the dead mans family.
