PA Castle Doctrine Tested

Ironically, it didn’t involve a gun. Instead it involved in someone shooting an arrow at an attacker wielding a club from his porch. To the best of my knowledge, no Cherokee were harmed in this first test of the law.

    When bows and arrows are outlawed, only outlaws will have bows and arrows.

    Thanks. Now I can’t get the image of Burt Reynolds with a bow and arrow out of my head!

    I had heard that civilization was in decline, but I had no idea just how far it had gone. Were both of the principals dressed in bearskins?

    How far away can it be before bodkins are banned in New Jersey?

    It seems pretty cut-and-dried to me. It is also sad to me that he would have been charged previous to the change in the law. You should never have to retreat to appease a criminal aggressor.

    Cherokee? In PA?

    As far as I know, there were never any Cherokees in Pennsylvania. What y’all had were Lenni-Lenapi, who made the deal with William Penn. And look what it got them! Extinction, mostly.

    I’m from Georgia, and know one or two actual Cherokees. In my experience, if a Cherokee feels the need, he’ll just go for the enemy with whatever weapon is handy, or even bare hands.

    Effin’ Damnyankees!

    The Lenape only settled Eastern, PA. Western PA, where this took place, was settled by the Erie tribe… which were Iroquois. I used Cherokee, because everyone knows that tribe.
