Today’s subject is the Castle Doctrine (a legal doctrine that designates a person’s abode or any legally occupied place, for example, a vehicle or home, as a place in which that person has protections and immunities permitting one, in certain circumstances, to use force, up to and including deadly force, to defend oneself against an intruder, free from legal prosecution for the consequences of the force used. A person may have a duty to retreat to avoid violence if one can reasonably do so. Castle doctrines lessen the duty to retreat when an individual is assaulted within one’s own home.

The Brady Campaign and Million Mom March work within their local communities and in Washington to bring about change at the local, state, and federal levels. Chapter members may be found phone banking their elected officials to support expanded Brady Background Checks, educating pediatricians on the importance of safely storing firearms in the home, or signing up new members at a local Farmer’s Market.

Host Teresa Wilke talks with Loren Stanton of the NE Kansas Brady Campaign about the Castle Doctrine that allows a homeowner to use deadly force against an intruder and keeping guns safe from misuse in the home.
