We are lefty liberals. We own guns & have been NRA members since the 1970's. We do not support the expanded Castle Doctrine. We do, however, support local police departments. This expanded Castle Doctrine appears to us as a way for people who refuse to pay their fair share for a police department to gain some false sense of security. It is another, in a long line of feel good laws, that make no common sense and only serve to boost brownie points for those politicians advocating them.

Read the paragraph (slowly if you're Republican):
First Rich the idiot says:
This legislation would have expanded the Castle Doctrine to an individual's car OR any other place that individual has a legal right to be.
Then in the next paragraph Rich the idiot says:
The legislation would apply only in those cases where a criminal has made a forcible entry into an individual's home or vehicle or is attempting to do so.
Which is it Rich the liar? My home and car OR any where I have a legal right to be?

This doctrine and all of its clauses would become your best argument in a case where let's say someone unlawfully enters your home with the intent of inflicting serious bodily injury, you protect yourself by cracking his head open, the assailant retreats and calls the police on you and now YOU are the one sitting in jail. Would this still be idiotic to you then?
