"Castle Doctrine" Resolution in Texas

"Randall Dunning, Mayor Pro Tem of the city of Garland, Texas, alerted us to this piece of legislation introduced to the Garland City Council. It contains two very strong pro-Second Amendment resolutions, one of which is a 'Castle Doctrine' resolution.

"The 'Castle Doctrine' essentially states that one's home is inviolate, a place of safety and refuge. As such, one should not be expected to retreat from an attack within one's home before resorting to the use of force to repel the attacker."

See the Garland, Texas' resolution for Castle Doctrine


The Castle Doctrine bill, SB 378 by Wentworth for the State of Texas, was signed by Governor Perry on Tuesday, March 27th, 2007. It goes into effect September 1, 2007.
