New Mexico Castle Doctrine Legislation Scheduled to be Heard in Committee on Tuesday!

Monday, January 29, 2007

 

Please Contact Committee Members Today!

State Representative John Heaton (D-Carlsbad) has introduced HB 163, NRA-backed "Castle Doctrine"/self-defense statute reform legislation. 

This bill is modeled on Florida's landmark law, creating presumptions of reasonableness for the use of defensive force in or around your home or occupied vehicle; codifying that you have "no duty to retreat" from a violent attack if you're in a place where you have a right to be, if you're not the initial aggressor, and if you're not engaged in criminal activity yourself; and establishing additional protections from civil liability if you lawfully protect yourself or your family. 

 

On Tuesday, January 30, the New Mexico House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee will hold a hearing on HB 163 at 1:30 p.m., in room 315 of the State Capitol in Santa Fe.  Please contact the committee members below and urge them to support HB 163.

 

State Representative Gayle Chasey (D-18, Chairman), 986-4844

State Representative Irvin Harrison (D-5, Vice-Chair), 986-4248

State Representative Thomas Anderson (R-29), 986-4452
