"No retreat" law repeal
I've noticed that, whenever a person or group objects to "no retreat," they never say just what they want to do about it, other than "talk" or "have a dialogue" on it. That's because the purpose of the protest is to have a protest, and not to air a proposal. So I'll supply the deficiency with a draft bill they can endorse.
Whereas, the lives and persons of murderers, rapists, robbers, and other violent criminals are offered insufficient protection under existing law, and
Whereas, murderers, rapists, robbers, and other violent criminals are exposed to undue and unreasonable danger from resisting victims, and
Whereas, a home is not a castle,
Therefore be it enacted:
I. Limitation on Use of Force in Self-Defense.
A. The victim of attempted murder, rape, robbery or other violent offense is not justified in using force to resist unless the said victim is unable to retreat from the person attempting the violent offence.
B. A person attempting to prevent the commission of murder, rape, robbery or other violent offense against another person is not justified unless the victim is unable to retreat from the person attempting the violent offense.
C. This Act shall be entitled “The Violent Criminals’ Protection Act of 2013.”
