Thread: CASTLE DOCTRINE Pennsylvania

    I'm not surprised. How quickly he states that the District Attorneys didn't like it so he vetoed it.

    The bill was anything but "Shoot first, ask questions later," but that's the fear factor that the media injects. Pennsylvanians don't realize how little the current law protects them when threatened WITHIN their own home!

    Darn Rendell, last act of a disliked and terrible governor.

    Hopefully Mr. Corbett will make good on this when he gets in office.

    Although I agree 100% with you, you might want to "code" out the entire "F" word next time. Site administrators might get a little testy over that. JMHO.

    Sorry, I was surprised there isn't a language filter on here.

    There is no excuse for it not to pass when the new Governor comes in.
    I just wonder what was in the bill that so many Dems voted for it. It was somewhere like 3 to 1.
    It should be brought for a vote and signed into law within six months! Not my prediction just what I think should be done.

    I agree it should and must pass. What really yanks my chain is not so much the ''stand ground'' aspect as much as the great need to have immunity (in a totally legal defense shooting of course) - from ridiculous civil actions brought by an injured perp' or his family.

    It is these crazy law suits that can follow which so often essentially bankrupt some poor guy who only did what he had to do to save his skin. I really hope Corbett gets this right - it's well overdue. I wrote Rendell a polite but strong letter following his inept decision.

    I think most of the few "no" votes were Philadelphia reps. The then democratic house "majority" was only by one rep/vote, but I think these guys (and girls!) voted for their constituants, unlike the crooks in Washington DC.

    I believe the failed push a little while ago to make Pennsylvania carry permits for residents only and not recognize other states' permits was from the City of Supposed Brotherly love. The city that allows family members of drug thugs who kill police officers to sue the city. Of all the unsafe places to have gun haters...
