The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed important self-defense legislation on Tuesday, voting in favor of the four-bill “Castle Doctrine” package that had broad bi-partisan support.
HB 5142, by Representative Tom Casperson (R-108), passed on a vote of 91-15. HB 5143, by Representative Rick Jones (R-71), HB 5548, by Representative Tim Moore (R-97), and HB 5153, by Representative Leslie Mortimer (R-65), all gained House approval on a vote of 90-15. This legislative package allows law-abiding citizens to defend themselves in places where they have a right to be without fear of criminal prosecution or civil liability. The four bills have been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Please call your State Senator at (517) 373-2400 and ask him or her to support the “Castle Doctrine” package.
