Kraft talks Castle Doctrine for story on NBC 26
Prof. Emeritus Michael Kraft discussed Wisconsin’s “Castle Doctrine” law in a Friday (Nov. 14) interview with NBC 26. Following an incident in Michigan last week in which a homeowner shot and killed an intruder, reporter Eric Crest took a look at Wisconsin’s law, in place since 2011. “It makes it more legitimate for a homeowner to fire a weapon in self defense than it used to be,” Kraft said. “… Many homeowners may feel they now have a right to shoot anybody who enters their home. But I would say I urge you to be careful about shooting someone and make sure your life is genuinely threatened before you pull the trigger.” Full story.
