NC Castle Doctrine/ Stand Your Ground

A socials study teacher at my 14 year old’s school is having the kids discuss/ debate hot topic issues, which I wholeheartedly support. They are talking about gun control and he made a statement that you can only shoot someone breaking into your home if you see they have a weapon. That is NOT TRUE. My daughter makes me so proud because she corrected his statement.

The NC Law presumes a person who unlawfully and by force enters or attempts to enter a home, vehicle, or place of business intends to commit an unlawful act involving force or violence.

Therefore the legal requirement of a reasonable person believing deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another is “PRESUMED” to be met without the person using the deadly force having to justify/ prove it. It is presumed!
