North Dakota “Castle Doctrine” Self-Defense Bill Making Progress!

Friday, April 6, 2007


Please Contact Your State Representative Today!


House Bill 1319, critical “Castle Doctrine” self-defense legislation sponsored by State Representative Todd Porter (R-34), passed the State Senate on Friday, March.  The final version of the bill needs approval by the House of Representatives either in conference committee or a vote by the full House.  Please contact your State Representative and urge him or her to support HB1319.


The “Castle Doctrine” self-defense bill simply states that if a criminal breaks into your home, your occupied vehicle or your place of business, you do not have a “duty to retreat.”  The bill also provides protection from criminal prosecution and civil litigation to those who defend themselves from criminal attack.


Please contact your State Representative at 1-888-NDLEGIS (635-3447) or 701-328-3373 (local) and respectfully urge him or her to support HB1319.
