The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance has launched a petition to the Idaho legislature to upgrade our Castle Doctrine.
The current Castle Doctrine for Idaho is antiquated and in desperate need of an overhaul.
In Idaho, if a criminal breaks into your home it does NOT mean that you are allowed to shoot him. You must prove that you felt your life, or the life of the ones you love, are in jeopardy. So in the dead of the night, coming out of a slumber, you are supposed to make a split second decision on whether or not you can defend your own home?
Other states, like Texas and Florida, say that the criminal must prove that you shot him maliciously. The presumption of innocence is with the gun owner. A novel concept right?
Now is the time for a new Castle Doctrine. A better Castle Doctrine.
Please sign the petition here and spread it throughout all of Idaho so others can send a loud and clear message to our legislators that gun owners must come first.
