There isn't a stand your ground or castle doctrine but there isn't anything this crazy! Hmm 6 posts...hope I'm not feeding the troll, he joined in June...that's a LONG time for only 6 posts lol

    As Minnesota laws stand right now, you have a "duty to retreat" before resorting to deadly force, particularly when outside of your home. The MN legislature was considering legislation last year that would have done away with that requirement, but my understanding is that it has not yet yet been passed in the state senate and signed by the governor.

    Here is a link to a site that explains the MN duty to retreat: Self-Defense in Minnesota Criminal Defenses
    "...I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind... Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks," Thomas Jefferson

    Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6...either way.

    Law or not, if an armed a-hole breaks into my house he's getting a bullet if he doesn't turn around and break his way back out fast. I highly doubt a person would have to wait to be fired upon first in their own home.
