    RE: "duty to retreat", I was asked in interview for Armed position

    if someone was coming at me with a knife(deadly threat) and I shot them what would I say in court when asked "Why didn't you run away instead of shooting?"

    I said "I'm not a fast runner and if I turned by back to run I would be much more vulnerable to knife attack", he said "good answer" and offered me the job.

    Huh. The one time I convinced The Bride to try archery, she was doing some similar manuevers... but it was unintentional.

    Fortunately, I set the target up in front of a sheet of plywood, with the garage behind. She managed to not miss the garage, and didn't lose any arrows.

    For the most part, your right. But again, it depends on the laws of the individual state; some states outlaw "high-capacity quivers", limiting quiver capacity to a maximum of ten rounds. CA even requires that the quivers of some specified bows (so-called "assault bows") be sporterized or demilitarized; among other specifications, requiring be "fixed" to the weapon, regardless of quiver capacity.

    All this, of course, can serve to limit the effectiveness of a semi-automatic bow, and render the comparative advantages of semi-auto bows somewhat moot.
    I've always enjoyed archery demonstrations, although some are more, umm....shall we say interesting than others.

    I would not trust any of the "weapons" sold at our local mall.

    There is something to be said for a bola.

    (Satire, folks; just satire. Don't bother googling "high capacity quivers" in the CA Municipal Codes.)

    Read your state statutes in regards to defense of self, defense of others, and defense of property.

    Then, read your state statute governing possession, import, or selling of melee weapons. I think you're in CA, which means that a lot of items are illegal to possess without "good reason," like martial arts weapons, or just plain illegal to possess.

    There you will find your answers. Most states don't care what you use to defend yourself, as long as the force is reasonable. You picked up a samurai sword because someone's invading your home and ran them through? The law doesn't see that act any different than shooting them down.

    The problems come from "how did you get close enough," "is it legal to even have one of those," and "you should have fled your home and called 911."
    The "duty to retreat" is an old common law concept that has faded over the years in favor of a "stand your ground" principle, especially in the United States. Even where a "duty to retreat" is still recognized, it is very narrowly construed. For instance, it is generally NOT applied to a person who is repelling an attack within his own dwelling (the "castle doctrine" overrides any duty to retreat), or "where the individual has a right to exercise exclusive occupancy and control". Washington State's Supreme Court put it even more broadly: "There is no duty to retreat when a person is assaulted in any place where he or she has a right to be" - in other words, anywhere that you are not trespassing, such as in any public place, a place of business, etc. It is also usually applied very rarely to an individual who is otherwise blameless in an attack (did not initiate or provoke the attack).

    The "stand your ground" principle is also recognized by Federal courts in cases where self-defense is asserted against a charge of criminal homicide, which further weakens the "duty to retreat" doctrine. Almost all states recognize the castle doctrine, either expressly in statute, in well-established case law, or tacitly as a matter of prosecutorial policy. Somewhat fewer states have actually passed "stand your ground" statutes, but a number are considering doing so.

    Fear not the "duty to retreat" gremlin, especially in defending your home, unless you live in one of the very few states where it may be applied.
