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

Neighbor, you're right. If I put my gun in my truck, I better be going to the range or gunsmith.  They just decided that I can stop for gas but it better be quick.  I am firmly anchored or I would not be here.  I believe NJ is one of the few states that has negative population growth which is not hard to understand.

There is no Castle Doctrine in NJ.
So unless you can prove your life was in immediate danger AND you could not retreat then a jury might find you not guilty.
...but there is always a chance a civil suit will get you anyway.

NJ politicians work hard to protect the criminals with gun laws.  They would prefer you become a victim without any defense.  With a firearm you have to train and practice to put yourself in a position of your firearm was your only choice.  Of course having US Law Shield is necessary because you will need it.
