Hi, and welcome to another edition of Dodgers Dugout. My name is Houston Mitchell. So this is what it feels like to be a fan of a mediocre team. But let's switch gears to a more serious topic - the recent shootings that have renewed attention to self-defense laws across the country.

Wrong doorbell. Wrong driveway. Wrong car. In all three cases, a man opened fire rather than ask a simple question: “Do you mean to be here?” These incidents have sparked discussions about the interpretation of self-defense laws and the extent to which people can use deadly force to protect themselves and their property.

The shootings of two people who mistakenly approached homes in Missouri and New York have further highlighted the complexities of self-defense laws. In Missouri, a man shot and killed a 14-year-old boy who was looking for directions to his school. The shooter claimed self-defense, stating that he thought the boy was trying to break into his home. In New York, a man shot and wounded a woman who had entered his backyard to seek help after getting into a car accident. The shooter claimed that he thought the woman was a burglar.

These incidents have reignited debates about the breadth of self-defense laws and the extent to which people can use deadly force to protect themselves and their property. Some argue that self-defense laws have been interpreted too broadly, allowing people to use deadly force in situations where it is not necessary or justified.

Others contend that self-defense laws are necessary to protect people from harm and that individuals have the right to use deadly force to defend themselves and their property. They argue that self-defense laws have been misinterpreted and that the vast majority of people who use deadly force do so in legitimate self-defense situations.
