New Hampshire "Castle Doctrine" Up For A Senate Vote!

Friday, March 3, 2006

Senate Bill 318, the New Hampshire “Castle Doctrine” legislation, will be voted on next week in the Senate.  This important piece of legislation, sponsored by Senator Peter Bragdon (R-11, Milford), gives back the rights that have been eroded or taken away by the current judicial system. 


In the face of unlawful attack, law-abiding citizens should not be forced to retreat or run from a place they have a right to be.  It is unreasonable that victims of crime should have to worry about being arrested or prosecuted if they use force to defend themselves or their family! 


This measure will reinstate the law prior to the time when judges and courts started putting the rights of criminals before the rights of the law-abiding.  It is important that you call your state Senator at (603) 271-2111 and urge him or her to support this legislation.


Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the "lobbying" arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
