Many people misunderstand Castle Doctrine and Stand your Ground Laws… both inside and outside the firearms community. In this video, Rob Pincus explains how he discusses these laws with his students. In Rob’s opinion, these laws don’t change the circumstances under which you should defend yourself, they simply make it easier to deal with the legal aftermath of needing to do so. Understanding the details of the laws and how to use them to articulate appropriate uses of lethal force to defend yourself or others is part of being responsibly armed. The Castle Doctrine and Stand your Ground laws are important for personal safety.
