Indiana Backs “Stand Your Ground”

AP Wire | 03/22/2006 | Governor signs law endorsing Hoosiers' right to use deadly force. The law prevents the courts from construing - as they have done in other states - that people have a duty to flee before they are empowered to defend themselves.

"Law-abiding citizens should not be forced to retreat when they're being attacked by criminals whether it's inside their home or outside their home," said Chris W. Cox, NRA chief lobbyist.
The governor's office said it, "makes the law clear that men and women are entitled to defend themselves."
