National Rifle Association http://wunc.org en Senate Expands "Castle Doctrine" on Deadly Force http://wunc.org/post/senate-expands-castle-doctrine-deadly-force <p>A Senate bill saying residents would be presumed to have properly used deadly force in the case of a home, car or workplace invasion has tentatively passed the state Senate. State law currently only deals with home invasions. Democratic Senator Dan Blue of Raleigh voted against the measure, because it expands the definition of a home and a workplace to include tents. Blue says a number of homeless people live in tents they erect in downtown Raleigh.</p> Thu, 24 Feb 2011 22:00:00 +0000 Jessica Jones 10131 at http://wunc.org
