On Monday, April 24, the Missouri Senate Judiciary Committee will hear Castle Doctrine legislation, HB 1461 (Ruestman, R-131). This critically important bill ensures Missourians will not have a duty to retreat when confronted by a violent attacker, nor can a victim be sued for using justifiable force to defend him or herself.
Please contact the Senate Judiciary Committee members listed below and strongly encourage them to protect your right to self-defense by supporting HB 1461!
