AGAIN !!!<quoted text>Afraid not. In fact property owners can be held liable for the actions of guests while on the property. While a lease gives the renter a contract it in no way gives anyone else any rights. SYG is for where "you have a legal right to be". Being on private property where you are not the owner or have a lease is trespassing if the owner so chooses. As with most things, the owner retains ALL rights not specific to the lease. You have no right to move in a guest without clearing it with the owner UNLESS that is granted in the lease. There are a few renter laws to protect the renter but I promise no one else has rights in the eyes of the law. SYG would only apply to those who have a RIGHT to be there.
(4) A person who is not the initial aggressor and is not engaged in unlawful activity shall have no duty to retreat before using deadly force under subsection (1)(e) or (f) of this section if the person is in a place where the person has a right to be, and no finder of fact shall be permitted to consider the personís failure to retreat as evidence that the personís use of force was unnecessary, excessive or unreasonable.
Notice:Where a person has a RIGHT to be.
A guest is just that a "guest". A guest has no right, but is granted a privilege which may be revoked at any time by the renter or property owner.
In the Trayvon case even the police had to have permission to patrol on the property. Just as your home. A cop can ask to come in but without probable cause or warrant they can't enter without permission and can be asked to leave at anytime even if invited.
As to "rights", I was speaking IN GENERAL concerning "rights that we ALL have in common".
You keep harping about "renter's" rights, and "right to be" in any one place. That is NOT what I meant concerning "rights" ... in that particular stand alone statement.
I AGAIN note that you also AGAIN agree that it is the ACTIONS of the individual/aggressor which determines the legal responses available to the one being attacked/threatened.
Also AGAIN, if a guest's "right" or as you say privilege, has NOT been revoked, then the "guest" DOES have the "right" to be there, and therefore they are NOT trespassing, and ALL rules of SYG still apply EQUALLY to all persons present. Being an invited guest in NO way diminishes one's right to self defense, and THAT is for sure and for certain.
