My Sister and Brother in law will be traveling to Missouri by motorcycle sometime in the next two weeks.
We are wondering if Missouri's version "castle doctrine" extends to a a motor vehicle as it does in LoUiSiAna?

I case you dont know, In LoUiSiAna our vehicle is considered an extension of our home.
Yes that applies to motorcycles too. :)

In Missouri, the castle doctrine applies to your dwelling. The definition of dwelling would include your motor home. It would also include a tent... The cite is here:
