Just in time for the season when someone is most likely to invade your home, Wisconsin has given you the legal authority to protect yourself.
If you hear someone coming down your chimney one of these nights, don't hesitate. Fire away.
I say "you" and not "us" because I don't own a gun.
But if you do, you'll no doubt be pleased to learn that the Castle Doctrine has been passed, signed into law, and will take effect as soon as it is legally published.
It says that if someone intrudes into your home, business or vehicle, you are free to shoot them, even if they are unarmed and have done nothing to threaten you.
In the past, you couldn't shoot someone unless you reasonably believed you needed to use deadly force to prevent the person from harming you.
But gun extremists said that wasn't fair, because people in their homes or businesses don't necessarily have the time to check whether an intruder is trying to hurt them. Really.
