    Well hopefully. There are 2 bills being introduced right now. Kinda amazing that one of the most gun friendly states in the us, does not have castle doctrine.

    Also they are looking to repeal the ban on concealing in a restaraunt that sells alcohol on site (stupid law); and the radar ban!

    all i give a fuck about is the restaurant ban, we have pretty good case law in VA for self defense, even though that doesn't help for civil immunity.

    I think a castle law would be a good thing, so long as the "castle" is defined as the house proper and not just any area on the property. There are lots of places in VA where the woods are so thick you can walk right through someone's property and never realize it was privately-owned or that there was a house on it. You shouldn't automatically get a free pass for killing someone on your property if they didn't even know it was your property.

    On the other hand, it's pretty damn hard to enter someone's house without realizing it, so if you want to pop someone who kicks down your front door without asking whether they meant to do it, that's fine with me.

    One of the reasons I don't carry yet.

    I am worried about what the ole Killington mouth would do in these circumstances.

    :hsugh: if you get shot just for walking on someone's property, that is murder. All the Castle Doctrine laws I have read state that you have to be or about to be causing great bodily injury, in the act of committing a felony, etc. It's not a law that turns the state into the wild west.

    I don't see why EVERY state doesn't have this. Without it, you are saying that a burglar and/or home invader has more protection under the law than the home owner, who was just minding his/her business prior to the scumbag invading their home...
