Please Call Your State Senator Today!
On Tuesday, May 9, the State Senate Judiciary C Committee reported out two NRA-supported bills:
v HB 89 by Representative Eric LaFleur (D-38) & Representative Don Cazayoux (D-18), the "Castle Doctrine" bill which creates presumptions in law for the use of force against intruders in your home, car or place of business and explicitly states in law that you have no "duty to retreat" from criminal attack if you are in a place where you have a legal right to be.
v HB 760 by Representative Steve Scalise (R-82) prohibits the confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens during a future state of emergency or natural disaster.
These bills now move to the full Senate for consideration.
Please contact your State Senators and urge them to support HB 89 & HB 760.
