Colorado may expand Castle Doctrine

‘Make My Day’ law could be extended. Colorado's Castle Doctrine law, known as the "Make My Day" law, in honor of Dirty Harry, may be extended so that your rights of self-defense don't stop at your front door.

The proposed changes would give people similar rights "to use deadly force to defend themselves in a hotel room or vehicle." The current legislation does not include your place of business or anywhere else. Not as broad as Florida's law, but still a step in the right direction.

Self-defense is a human right. Access to effective means of self-defense is critical if that right is to mean anything.
