Thread: It's Official The Castle Doctrine is Law in NC

  1. #11
    If you or your family are attacked in your own home and you defend yourself, you could be sued by the person who attacked you or by their family! Unbelievable!
    North Carolina Senate Bill 928 would shield you and your family from vicious lawsuits should you chose to protect yourself rather than allowing an attacker to harm you or your family. This bill was widely accepted by our legislature and referred to committee prior to final approval. Representative Deborah Ross, a trial lawyer and chairperson of the Judiciary Committee, has refused to let this bill out of her committee. It has been held hostage there since May 2009.

    If you do want protection from lawyers so you can protect yourself and your family from criminals, please DO NOT call Deborah Ross at 919-733-5773 or e-mail her at [email protected].
    SHE DOES NOT CARE what her constituents think and has heard from most of you already. This is a personal agenda for her and as such she is unapproachable. However her committee may be.
    PLEASE CONTACT THEM…………………..

    Tell them their committee chairperson is wrong and by association they are viewed as wrong although they may actually be very nice people! (Drive a wedge between them!)

    Vice Chairs of this committee include:
    Melanie Goodwin
    919-733-5823
    [email protected]
    Melanie is from Hamlet, NC. Please forward this to anyone you may know in that area.

    Grier Martin
    919-733-5758
    [email protected]
    Grier is from Wake County

    Paul Stam
    919-733-2962
    [email protected]
    Paul is from Apex, NC

    First mistake. They are even worse than cops when it comes to knowing the law.

  4. Gentlemen,

    I made some inquiries into this bill today and this is what I discovered.

    1. The senate has passed this and moved it to the house.
    2. The house committee with Ms. Ross has stalled it thus not allowing it to be put to a vote by the house. She is adamantly against this but also needs to be voted out. She represents Wake County.

    3. There is a petition going around that you can sign. There are currently 7752 signatures on it.
    Castle Doctrine In North Carolina Petition

    4. If this petition does not work, you can contact the Speaker of the House for NC, or, the Rules Chairman for NC and ask that they put this on the agenda. They have the power to do so, thus circumventing the committee.

    Speaker email – [email protected]

    Rules Chairman – [email protected]


    5. IF all the above fails, we can ask, by using the aforementioned petition, that they themselves start a "discharge" petition which would need to be signed by a majority of reps and would finally circumvent the committee and place it on the floor for a vote.

    NC already honors the FLA permit. SC probably never will. They seem to be anal about reciprocity.

    Question Any updates?

    Are there any updates on this? I sure don't like looking at this map, http://www.nraila.org/maps/cd.jpg and seeing that neighboring state of North Carolina does not have Castle Doctrine legislation.

    The only thing NC does not have in this respect is immunity from civil lawsuit and there are other ways to protect assets anyway. The current law allows some of the most liberal use of deadly force in the country in that you do not have to believe your life is in danger to prevent forcible entry you only have to believe the would be intruder intends to commit a felony in the home. You also do not have to wait until they gain entry since the law says you can use deadly force to prevent entry. Yes, that means if the reasonable belief requirement is met you can shoot them right through the door if they are attempting to force entry i.e. kicking the door etc. If the General Assembly messes with it you are likely going to wind up with the immunity but with tightened standards on the actual use of deadly force which is going to overall make for a much worse law. The only way I would support any change is if the lawsuit immunity provision is added without any change to the existing text unless that change would increase the circumstances when deadly force can be used. What you are likely to see is the ability to use deadly force simply to prevent the commission of a felony in the home stripped away and replaced with the more common standard of fear of death or grave bodily injury, which is harder to prove.

    Yes, SC recognizes the FL RESIDENT permit, but not the FL NONRESIDENT permit
