Stand Your Ground

I have always lived in a “stand your ground state” and I believe that has been a part of shaping who I am and what I feel and believe.

This is the best explanation I have found to describes and gives a clear meaning of the law.

“Twenty-eight states are stand-your-ground states. Dr. Sweet’s grandfatherly advice: If someone commits a felony crime against your person in these jurisdictions, you may legally shoot them. Conversely, if you want to make a living by felony crimes against persons, these are not the safest states to ply your trade.”

To me it comes down to respect. Most of the people I associate with have no trespass signs on their property. There are very specific rules about the size, location, visibility and verbiage. I can be very costly to cover the property and if you want the protection it needs to be done. We spend the money and time because we mean it.

If someone we don’t know come our normal greeting is “What can I help you with?” We make the assumption they need or want something. (see question one)

If they say they are lost and looking for a neighbor we radio or phone the neighbor and ask if they want us to escort them to their home or if they want to come and get them. It’s not a rule, it’s simply what we have always done.

When new people move in the “Welcome”  committee does provide maps, phone numbers and let them know that neighbors may contact them if people are lost. (See question 2)

We are not a closed community. We do want to protect our land, cattle, and homes. People where we live don’t often “wander” on to property.
