Posted: Updated:

Guam - National Rifle Association firearms instructor Darren Alvarez recently spoke about the Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground policies around the nation.  27 states have some form of Castle Doctrine, which is based on the belief that your home is your castle and you should not have to beg or plead if you are approached by anyone violent who comes in to your home to hurt you. 

Alvarez told local Rotary members that Guam does have a duty to retreat policy, saying, "As an instructor I teach every single person you would way rather retreat than having to 1.) having to end someone's life, 2.)  having to go through courts and having to have it adjudicated and 3.) the moral, social and ethical  implications of having to defend yourself and everybody you know now second guessing you for the next ten years."

Alvarez teaches various firearms courses including one that will be held on Sunday, February 9 for women.  To register, you can go to NRAInstructors.org and search the courses by inputting your zip code.
