    Two Castle Doctrine Bills in GA - Act Now

    The Castle Doctrine that would protect those who protect themselves
    has been introduced in both the House and the Senate of the North
    Carolina General Assembly. HB 1131, introduced by Rep. MARK HILTON and
    SB 928 introduced by Sen. DOUG BERGER are both headed for committee.
    You can help make it become a reality.

    If faced with a reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily
    harm, would you like to have a reinforced right to use deadly force
    without a duty to retreat? If you were forced to defend yourself or
    you family would you like to spend the rest of your life defending
    yourself in court, or would you prefer to have immunity from criminal
    prosecution and civil action? These are the key questions to ask
    yourself when considering the Castle Doctrine.

    Under the Castle Doctrine:

    * A reinforced right to use deadly force.

    * No duty to retreat reinforcing your right to "stand your ground"
    when attacked, rather than having to attempt to flee.

    * In cases of justifiable use of deadly force it would grant you
    immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action.

    Countering the doomsday arguments posited by the same crowd who
    predicted "blood in the streets" once the Concealed Carry laws went
    into effect, the Castle Doctrine would have the following exemptions:

    * You would not be protected if you are engaged in unlawful
    activities at the time of the deadly encounter or if you provoked the

    * Domestic violence exceptions: In general, if a restraining order
    has been issued against you by the "aggressor," or the "aggressor" is
    a lawful occupant of the residence, the presumption of fear of death
    or great bodily injury available normally available for home
    protection may not apply.
