Judy Maggio:

What is the Castle Doctrine, and how does it work in Texas? We asked Austin lawyer Sam Bassett for this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.

Sam Bassett:

The Castle Doctrine allows you to use, possess and use firearm within the confines of your own home, so if you're burglarized, especially in the night time, the interpretation of the use of deadly force is greatly expanded. Certainly, you're also allowed to possess any number of firearms within your home.
