Q: What does "retreat jurisdiction" in 87 mean?
A: I'm assuming context from my general knowledge of legal issues in the US right now:

Different states have differing laws on the use of violence to defend yourself. Many states have a requirement that you attempt to retreat or remove yourself from a situation, and if you find that you cannot, only then is the use of deadly force justified.

Other states have what are know as "stand your ground" laws, which say that if another person does something that causes you to fear for your life, and you are in a place that you are legally entitled to be, then you automatically have the right to use deadly force without first being required to try and retreat.

New Mexico is a "stand your ground" state, which means that it is not a "retreat jurisdiction" or a region where the law requires you to make an attempt to leave a confrontation before using violence is allowed.
