Virginia Senate Kills Castle Doctrine Bill

American Chronicle | Virginia Legislators Vote To Protect Home Invaders Actually it was killed in committee. It passed the Virgina house, 80 to 19.

So the protections remain with the criminal in the great state of Virginia. Homeowners must act "reasonably" at 3 AM when their family is in danger. And even if the do act "reasonably" they can still be sued by the miscreant or their estate in the even of a legal self-defense shooting.

A handful of lawyers, and some others, voted to abridge the rights of law-abiding Virginians.

Way to coddle the criminals, Virginia.
