Texas state Rep. Terry Meza (D) introduced a bill that would make it harder for gun owners to use the state's "castle doctrine" against home invaders. The "castle doctrine" allows residents to use deadly force to protect their property. Meza's bill, HB 196, has already caused a lot of controversy and in a series of tweets on her Twitter account, she said it does not repeal the "castle doctrine," it only would "require a homeowner to exhaust the potential of safely retreating into their habitation before using deadly force in defense of themselves or their property." Meza says the reason why she introduced the bill is because the current doctrine "emboldens people to take justice into their own hands. While theft is obviously wrong, we have laws to address that. I don’t believe that stealing someone’s lawn ornament should be an offense punishable by death."

I’d love to tell this bitch that if “more people thought they might get shot stealing other people’s hard earned property, there’s be a lot less stealing going on”.

I call it 'California Lawyering" the belief that if attacked in your home you are supposed to run and hide and wait for help....

The belief and legal determination that a person should be secure in their home (castle) is not some new fangled law from the last couple of years. It has been around for centuries.

A further result/benefit is, roach by roach, getting rid of the one's stupid enough to do a home invasion.

In Texas this is one of those 'pro forma' kinda things. Someone like this idiot will keep a copy of a bill on their laptop and introduce it every year just to claim that they're 'fighting' for more gun control so they deserve some of that Everytown money. The chance of the Castle Doctrine being withdrawn in Texas lie somewhere between nonexistent and absurd.
