Your Senator needs to hear from you!
The Alabama State Senate will soon be considering a bill of great importance to gun owners. Senate Bill 283, the "Castle Doctrine" bill sponsored by Senator Larry Means (D-10), removes the "duty to retreat" when a citizen is faced with attack in a place he or she has a right to be. SB 283 would ensure an individual whose home was being broken into had no duty to retreat before using necessary force.
Please call your State Senator and respectfully ask him or her to support SB 283 when it comes before the Senate next week for a vote! You can reach your Senator at (334) 242-7800.
Also, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Rodger Smitherman (D-18) needs to hear from you on this important issue. Chairman Smitherman has shown support for new language to be incorporated into the bill. However, this language would drastically change the bill's intent. Please contact Chairman Smitherman and ask him to support SB 283 in its original form. He can be reached by calling (334) 242-7870 or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please make these important phone calls today!
Your right to self-defense depends on it!
