Important Self-Defense Legislation Before Wisconsin Legislature!

Monday, May 1, 2006



Please Contact Your State Legislators Immediately!

 

Vital self-defense legislation sponsored by State Representative Carol Owens (R-53) is scheduled to be heard on the House floor, Tuesday, May 2. 

 

Assembly Bill 1020, otherwise known as the “Castle Doctrine,” removes the “duty to retreat” if an individual is attacked in his or her home, vehicle, place of business or any other place he or she has a legal right to be.  This legislation also states that victims may use necessary force to defend themselves against the attacker.

 

When confronted by criminals, victims do not have the luxury of time.  They have to make a split-second decision on whether the best option is to retreat or to stand their ground and defend themselves or their loved ones.  If passed Wisconsin citizens can defend himself or herself without fear of being prosecuted or sued by the criminal or criminal’s family.

 

It is unreasonable for victims of a crime to have to worry about being arrested or prosecuted if they use force to defend themselves or their family!
