Idahoans Set Sights On Castle Doctrine

posted on October 13, 2016

Self-defense advocates are hoping to get Castle Doctrine legislation introduced in the Gem State this year, according to a report from KPVI.

“We have what's called a justifiable homicide statute that allows a home owner to use deadly force, basically under the same circumstances that you could use deadly force out in public,” Alexandria Kincaid, an attorney and an advocate for the bill, told KPVI. “So there's no extra protection for you inside your own home.”

Kincaid said the goal of the law is to give homeowners the ability to defend themselves and their family while putting the burden on the violent criminal. “You would have the ability as the person who lives there to defend yourselves and your family with deadly force,” he said. “The law would assume that somebody who breaks inside your home intends to cause you harm.”

We’ll keep you posted on this issue in future updates.
