That is not what the castle doctrine covers. There are a FEW cases where it covers incidents outside of the structures on the property (when a theft is being committed I have heard of those, although still don't agree with cause life was not in danger).

The castle doctrine is a good thing and should only be applied to the interior of the house. If someone breaks into my house - I know they don't care about the law and I do not know their intent. Even without a castle doctrine in my state they will be shot until they drop or start retreating (after a verbal warning of course).

I don't think this is unreasonable.

That's why I wrote "if." The idea being that the Castle Doctrine is limited to the home, but people have tried to push this envelope outward to include cars and other property.

Right.

Sure and that's an important distinction.
