TELL me this isn’t so

In Texas, State Representative Terry Meza (D-Irving) has introduced
HB196.  Her bill would repeal the state’s “castle doctrine.”  This
doctrine allows a homeowner to use deadly force against an armed
intruder who breaks into his home.

“I’m not saying that stealing is okay,***Meza explained. “All I’m
saying is that it doesn’t warrant a death penalty.  Thieves only carry
weapons for self-protection and to provide the householder an
incentive to cooperate.  They just want to get their loot and get
away. When the resident tries to resist is when people get hurt. If
only one side is armed fewer people will be killed.”

Meza was quick to reassure that her bill “would not totally prevent
homeowners from defending themselves.

Under the new law the homeowner’s obligation is to flee the home at
the first sign of intrusion.  If fleeing is not possible he must
cooperate with the intruder.  But if violence breaks out it is the
homeowner’s responsibility to make sure no one gets hurt.

The best way to achieve this is to use the minimum non-lethal force
possible because intruders will be able to sue for any injuries they
receive at the hands of the homeowner.”

“In most instances the thief needs the money more than the homeowner
does,” Meza reasoned. “The homeowner’s insurance will reimburse his
losses.  On balance, the transfer of property is likely to lead to a
more equitable distribution of wealth.  If my bill can help make this
transfer a peaceful one, so much the better.”

**** Actually, I think that is exactly what she’s saying, don’t you?

HONESTLY: I thought this was one of those silly news satire things like from Babylon Bee….

It isn’t.    Help me.   OH MY GOD.

    “….. the criminal can sue the homeowner later for Injuries sustained….” Ha ha ha ha ….
    All I get from this bill is “Make sure you shoot to kill- don’t leave anyone alive to sue you”
    The transfer of money/ wealth as this moron describes it is likely contributing to the illegal sale of drugs, too. This isn’t the first bill of its kind to be put forth. It’s ridiculous and transparent … and won’t change anyone’s behavior when they have a home invasion!

    I doubt that this resolution can pass the full Texas state legislature. At least, that is my hope!

    Yea well, AOC had a bill to get rid of flying cows and farting airplanes too…..

    The RINO governor of Ohio just ‘reluctantly’ signed the Stand Your Ground bill, which similar to Florida allows you to blow the brains out of the two black punks who are trying to mug you on the street.

    Good luck with that nonsense in Texas.

    Well, Meza is a Mex and they’ve been retreating for the past 500 years. Texans don’t retreat; they attack. Any nut job who assaults a peaceful Texan soon realizes two things: first, they screwed up, and second, “peaceful Texan” is a relative concept.

    This isn’t so.
    There, I did what you told me to do. LOL (Z: see my blog title!! :-))

    But seriously, Texas?
    We got castle doctrine (in Michigan!) a few years ago and we’re not gonna give it up.
    It’s based on a Constitutional right to defense of life and property.
    It’s a shame it has to be spelled out in law.

    If you read the accounts in The American Rifleman of homeowners defending themselves against armed aggressors who attempt to do more than steal property, you’d have a clear understanding of the situation.

    I have yet to read of a home invasion where the perpetrator loudly announces his intention of only stealing property.

    But it refuses to post, then tells me it’s a duplicate comment if I try again.

    Some sources have downplayed the impact of her proposed changes in the law. But an important one that gets ignored is striking “a person who is authorized to be there” and replacing it with a “resident.” So, you’re staying over helping grandma and an intruder breaks in. Are you a resident? Nasty stuff. “Retreat” is required first and – honestly as a girl – it would be my first option. Unless I had 3 children sleeping in their bedrooms down the hall and couldn’t get to them. $$$ fodder for lawyers.

    “All we get from congress critters is lip service.”

    This is absolutely true, Kid … but America is too large and Congress too inept to meet our individual or community needs. But seeing to my needs is not the mandate of the United States Congress. I would prefer that Congress confine itself to federal matters and leave the states alone to pursue their duty to THEIR citizens. Representative Meza is addressing an issue in her state, and I have no problem with that.

    I agree completely with Baysider — these “implants” may be born inside the United States, they may be educated here (tongue in cheek, of course), and they may pursue a living within our borders — but that doesn’t make them Americans. I notice that Meza is a teacher — no doubt kindergarten or freshman English. By the time Meza wises up, her throat will be cut and her body stuffed into an irrigation pipe and all the possible things that might happen to her — or anyone — can be prevented by someone who has immediate access to a firearm.

    I’m very at ease with Meza deciding for herself not to carry a weapon, or even use one inside her home … but I don’t want morons like her imposing upon me conditions that I find unsatisfactory. The Texas law is fine and I seriously doubt if the Texas house will make any changes to it.

    PS. Burglary is how many Hispanics make a living in Texas. They even use their 8-12 year old children to help break into homes. They lift them through the tiny bathroom windows, and then the kids go and unlock the front door. More than one “kid” has been shotgunned from this sort of thing. Maybe Mexie Meza is trying to “save the children.”
