Did you mean FBI?
Yes, Utah does have a stand-your-ground law. Additional states with a stand-your-ground law include Tennessee, Texas, West Virgina, Ohio, Arizona, and Alaska to name a few.
It wasn't. California does not have a stand your ground law.
Yes Indiana has a Castle Doctrine law that's "Stand Your Ground"
In 2011 Pennsylvania passed the Castle Doctrine, that includes stand-your-ground rights to any place you have the right to be. There are some exceptions to this law. For example the an individual cannot use deadly force and invoke stand your ground law unless the aggressor produces or shows a deadly weapon. The law was modeled on Florida's SYGL, but LE officials requested the deadly weapon amendment. Which Florida does not have within their SYGL.
Stand your ground and cherish the good earth
Stand your ground laws are a slippery slope to say the least. They are an open invitation to gunfights. A person's right to defend himself, his family and his property are already recognized in the law. There is also the right to make a citizen's arrest (although this must be done in a specific and correct way)
I guess in Florida as long as your a big guy with a truck you can chase down a kid with an ice tea and skiddles and shoot to kill, then claim as "you are chasing him" that it was self defense.
