Castle Doctrine Hubub

Uncle refutes some media myths about castle doctrine in Texas, and points out that the hysterical media coverage might be responsible for the incident in question:

Why would he think that a law that eliminates the duty to retreat instead justifies killing two burglars that were not an imminent threat to him and were not on his property? Probably because he heard that line repeated over and over by the anti-gunners in press coverage of the bill.

Maybe now it’s time to start being factual and doing research?  Nah!  Sensationalizing stories is easier and sells more papers.

  1. I wonder if they’ll also admit responsibility for partially popularizing “assault weapons”.
