Pennsylvania state Senator justifies castle doctrine

This gets to the bottom line pretty clearly.

State Rep. Scott Perry said he wants to give crime victims that extra split second to make a life-or-death decision.

They shouldn’t have to weigh an array of legal limitations or worry that they might be sued while deciding how to defend themselves in a kill-or-be-killed situation, the Dillsburg Republican said. . . . .

“That’s no time for victims to be second-guessing,” he said.

Law-abiding citizens should be allowed by law to react quickly and to use deadly force if necessary to save themselves anywhere and any time that danger finds them, he said.

Perry said that’s why he’s sponsoring the latest proposal to expand the state’s so-called Castle Doctrine. . . .
