Can someone explain to me how implementing the “Castle Doctrine” in Wisconsin will create jobs?

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said Wisconsin, like most states, doesn’t need a castle doctrine, because current law, refined over the last half century, provides more than adequate protection for anyone legitimately acting in self-defense.

“The statute in place right now is actually a very good standard, very workable, functional definition of self-defense,” he said.

Chisholm called the current bill a solution in search of a problem, one that “seems to introduce ambiguity that will make it difficult for law enforcement to make fine distinctions.”

Perhaps Republicans in the Assembly are counting on a flurry of Castle Doctrine-related shootings, making it necessary for governmental agencies to hire more medical examiners and related staff to haul away dead bodies from houses, businesses, and vehicles.

2 Responses to Republicans to take up “Castle Doctrine” as a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist

  1. Jake formerly of the LP says:

    JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! What an insane bill. Self-defense is already on the books for people who are threatened, so explain to me the point for this unnecessary law? Keep this garbage in backwards Confederate states where it belongs.

    Van Wangaard must have been promised a whole lotta cash from the NRA to co-sponosor this thing. Guess he knows he’s getting recalled.

  2. Jeff Simpson says:

    If the people who get shot are employed that opens up a new position.

    is this named after Frank castle?
