    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but this is an interesting article about " Castle Doctrine & Stand Your Ground" use of your firearm,posted by one of my Canadian friends, but also includes a map of the US.

    Castle Doctrine & Stand Your Ground « Red Ensign

    I'm a newbie on this forum, just thought I'd post.

    PS - Glad I live in Washington State so far when it comes to gun laws, concealed carry and home, personal and property defense.

    ORS 161.209-229. Use of force justifiable in a range of scenarios without a duty to retreat specified.

    Is that map correct? Oregon appears to have a "Castle Doctrine-like" stance.

    Here's a few links that I found on another forum, hopefully this will help.

    Oregon Law links:
    https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/161.225
    https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/161.219
    http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/161.html
    HTTP://www.leg.state.or.us/07reg/mea...069.intro.html
    Oregon Statutes - Chapter 161 - General Provisions - Section 161.225 - Use of physical force in defense of premises. - Oregon Attorney Resources - Oregon Laws
    Premises vs. Property: ORS 161.225 & .229 - Oregon Concealed Carry


    C992168CR;
    State v. Taylor :: June, 2002 :: Oregon Court of Appeals Decisions :: Oregon Case Law :: US Case Law :: US Law :: Justia

    Go to the third post down on this link, see "Old Hick's Post"
    Heads Up! Castle Doctrine, Self Defense Dan Rather Reports - Page 2 - XDTalk Forums - Your XD/XD(m) Information Source!

    That should keep you busy, and hopefully explain some things. I highly recommend Oregon Firearms Federation's book on Understanding Oregon Gun Laws by, Kevin Starrett: Oregon Firearms Federation
