In Texas they are trying to get a law passed that will allow people to use deadly force in their castle metaphorically speaking which means that a person will be allowed to use deadly force in their car, house, and place of buisness. Advocates of this law would want to have this deadly force law extended to a person's car and workplace. Advocates want to remove the duty to retreat law. This law would require judges and juries to assume a person is justified in using deadly force. The deadly force bill has been carefully made to prevent the wrong people from taking advatngae of it. This law would also protect those who used deadly force from injured attackers or or their families. Gun-Control advocates fear that this law may lead to an increase in wrongful deaths or accidents. The police in Texas also say that the bill will not change the way they conduct their investigations.
