This is how those who work to restrict our ability to defend ourselves describe what we defend ourselves against. “While theft is obviously wrong, I don’t believe that stealing someone’s lawn ornament should be an offense punishable by death.”
BELTON, Texas (KWTX) – A new bill introduced by State Representative Terry Meza is proposing a change to the state castle doctrine.
As it stands, the castle doctrine allows a resident to use deadly force to defend his or her property. Meza’s proposed amendment would require a resident to safely retreat before using deadly force.
Local gun owner Joe Lee says he doesn’t agree with it, and the change would give protection to the intruder.
“You don’t have to be a gun enthusiast to want to own a gun and defend yourself,” he said.
