I have a pack of three dogs that WILL stand their ground. If somebody breaks into my property they will probably wish they had just been shot. Should I have to chain them up with muzzles on, so as to let Mr. Criminal do what he wants with my belongings?

The objects in your home are not worth more than anyone's life, not even a burglar's.


...then why would any burglar value their life so low as to try to take them?


and yet they still do and this law has made no change in that.......


EXCEPT it sure as hell puts a dent in the repeat offender rates!

It's nothing personal, but it an American thing which you won't ever understand


True enough it is, even some Americans will never get it.

Society long since made LAWS that says X can't shoot Y. They conveniently IGNORE that fact, and demonize a thing.

Because for some odd reason they think they can legislate human behavior.

Murder is ILLEGAL. That doesn't stop it.

So they create more laws for THINGS, and have for over 80 years. That still hasn't stopped it.

And they keep up their exercise in futility. Then play politics with it, and we all know what a farce American politics is.

As long as the mob gets outraged about something, ANYTHING our politicians as Voltaire put it:

Those who can make you believe in absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.

STanding your ground in your own house is also under the castle doctrine and therefore it is entirely legal and allowable to shoot a intruder because you do not know their intentions. In other words they break in they deserve whatever th e homeowner deems necessary within reason.

That is a great point. When I was a teenager I worked at Jiffy Lube as a lower bay tech. There was a narrow walkway on both sides of the shop that was open with no floor. They pull cars in and I pop up to do the oil change. They had these safety nets that had to be attached to the oil sumps everynight. Reason being, a burglar broke into a shop one night, fell through the opening and broke his back. The damn burglar sued the shop and won. Unbelievable!

Hey Aloysius the Gaul, should I muzzle my dogs and throw them in a pen so a lowlife criminal doesn't get attacked? Or do my dogs have more Stand Your Ground rights than me as their law-abiding owner?
