Nightline to feature castle doctrine law

Regular readers of this blog know I am no fan of the highly unnecessary Castle Doctrine (frontier justice) law proposed by Jack Goodman, R-Mount Vernon, in the senate, and Marilyn Ruestman, R-Joplin, in the House, and then passed through both bodies and signed into law by Gov. Matt Blunt.
The law, which has been a chief project of the National Rifle Association, has also been implemented in Texas, where it has come under fire (pun intended) after a man shot two burglars fleeing a neighbor's home.
ABC's Nightline will examine the issue in a program slated to start at 10:35 p.m. on KODE.

about time a homeowner has the right to shoot anyone they catch breaking into their homes. people work hard these days to make ends meet just to have some lazy person decide the best way to make a living is to steal from the working man.
