NJ castle doctrine
« on: June 10, 2017, 06:04:54 PM »
It amazes me that this state expects people to victimize themselves and remain vulnerable to obey such a  ridiculous law.

Thoughts?

Can't say as I'm surprised that New Jersery politicians/lawmakers have some strange ideas compared to what I consider the average American.  :)

When you say "cornered" I assume you mean you have to retreat if at all possible? Does this mean that if you can slip out the back door of your own house when a "bad guy" comes in the front door with a gun, you must do that  rather than shoot back??

well if you can...I don't have a back door.

They expect you to be cornered in a room with no escape....

Good thing I don't live in NJ because I'm pretty sure I retreating out my own back door wouldn't be my #1 solution to someone breaking in my front door - unless it was to step outside and get more firepower and come back in ;D
