Castle doctrine and stand your ground....

Traveling with DH is always a great experience. There aren't any normal distractions and tends to lead to some really interesting discussions.
Last night we were talking about castle doctrine, stand your ground and how it applies to a Commonwealth in the law. It is important to understand your state or commonwealth's laws.
DH and I met in a weapons training course. At that point he was working and teaching at a range and security company. He was impressed at how well I shot and I liked his eyes. LOL. It was a match made in heaven.
First to explain, DH is a Range Master, has been teaching weapons safety & Virginia Concealed Carry Weapon for decades. Plus he has been teaching Utah Concealed Carry Weapon classes for about 10 years.
There is no way I am able to impart even a smidgen of his knowledge to you.
So, I am going to recommend three books he handed to me today to read.
First is "Stress Fire" by MassadF. Ayoob, next is "Inthe Gravest Extreme" by Massad F. Ayoob again (this is out of print, but you can buy it used) and the third book is "Virginia's Gun Owners Guide" by Alan Korwin and Steve Maniscalco. While this one is specifically about the Commonwealth of Virginia, they do have guides for some other states.


I also ran across a wonderful article entitled "Castle Doctrine Explained, What Every Concealed Permit Holder Needs to Know", that explains castle doctrine and stand your ground very simply and directly. Let me know what you think of the article.
