88. Standing your ground need not result in death of any party involved.
The attacker could back down.
The attacker could surrender.
The attacker could be delayed long enough for law enforcement to arrive.

Again, this IS the current law in progressive, blue, Washington State. Alaska's old law requiring a duty to retreat is an archaic throwback to british common law, and was rarely implemented in the United States.
