Probably not until 2012
I was thinking ( ya I know ) if the Fed's instituted a national castle law how effective that might be against home invasions for instance ? Say maybe even give a tax credit for purchasing a fire arm for home defense.
The News and anti's would be all over it I'm sure but the criminal element would surly hear of it with all the coverage.
Criminals are getting pretty brazen any more and I feel there's some momentum gaining with the public for self defense in general. More people I talk to seem to bring up thinking about getting a gun lately.
Doe's any body think this may ever be a possibility ?
Probably not until 2012
“…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

federal castle law.. hmm i dunno but i doubt they'll be giving tax credits for guns.
i do not believe the castle doctrine deters criminals.
at it's core all it does is put burden of proof back on prosecutors.. the actual implementation beyond that varies from state to state.
If you can't shoot well, shoot often.
I could see a tax credit if you use lead free ammo. Your loads would have to eco friendly.
You may fire when you are ready Gridley.
You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.
You guys are dreaming. And, if they can make Castle legal in all fifty states, then they can take gun rights away in all fifty states as well. Castle is best left to the individual states. If you don't have a Castle law in your state, move to one that does.

When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

There is nothing in life so bad or so awful that it cannot be made infinitely worse by a lawyer.
Dream on. I can't see a lot of deterence. When criminals act, getting caught isn't in the forefront of their mind.
All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.
