    Specifically, it overturns current law, which says that someone who kills another person and claims self-defense has to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the killing was justified. This new law, which takes effect immediately, says once someone claims self-defense, prosecutors have to prove otherwise

    "In this country we are innocent until proven guilty," said the Tucson Republican. "It's the responsibility of the prosecution to establish the case."

    The measure also expands the "castle doctrine," which gives people the right to shoot to kill when their homes are invaded. Current law does spell out that people can use deadly physical force in certain circumstances in defense of life or property.
    This measure expands that to say that people can kill intruders who unlawfully or forcefully enter a residence or occupied vehicle and the person "reasonably believes himself or another person to be in imminent peril of death or serious physical injury." It also says the person has no duty to withdraw in such a situation, even if it is possible.


    Way to Go Arizona, Got some of your rights back.

    For being a pro-gun state, Ohio sucks. We just need to get some better people in our government.

    I think a lot of states are working to get Castle Doctrines now. I know LA has one in the state house.
