Before There Was a Castle Doctrine

NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi speaks with Cam Edwards about the issue of the Castle Doctrine. Standard Castle Doctrine legislation is based on the legal idea that a person should be able to defend themselves in their own homes, including with deadly force, without being prosecuted or sued. Before the NRA started pressing this legislation, Tahmassebi explains, the law of self-defense was based on the amount of force that was necessary for a person to use to repel an attacker based on the threat posed by the attacker-which left the burden on the victims to both decide the measure of self-defense in the heat of the moment and also to prove the necessity of their defense.
