Senator Stan White Votes NO on Senate’s Castle Doctrine, Skip Stam opposes House version


From Katy’s Conservative Corner, The North Carolina Senate Thursday tentatively approved a bill (SB 34) that allows citizens to stand their ground and defend themselves with deadly force when an intruder unlawfully enters their home, vehicle or place of business.  Senator White voted ‘Yes’ initially but changed his vote after language was added to extend protection to a person’s car or workplace.

There is a Castle Doctrine bill making its way through the House concurrently.  That bill has come under fire (pun intended) from Republican Majority Leader, Skip Stam.  He engaged in relentless questioning apparently intending to tie up the bill, painting scenarios of drug dealers shooting it out and using Castle Doctrine as a legal defense, likening the bill to “expedited execution,” according to AmmoLand.
