    There are plenty of reasons I love my state and really don't want to move, and here is just one.....

    A snippet from our code:
    IC 35-41-3-2
    Use of force to protect person or property

    I like that we DO NOT have a duty to retreat, and I like that we can protect a 3rd party (family, friend, neighbor, etc) and I like that we are protected from legal action.

    Also, I found this..

    states with STRONG Castle Doctrine and stand-your-ground laws include:
    states with limited, little, or no castle law or case law giving citizens the rights to protect their homes using force include:
    Dated July 2011, so somethings may have changed since then

    Be sure to know and understand the Castle Doctrines in your state!

    Hells yeah ... They have tried to re write that many times but we have always resisted that ... I like that I can interpret if someone is threatening or not. Of course in the cities it's different due to the large availability of police but I think the only different thing is you hav to prove that the person has malicious intent.
