Please Contact Your State Representative and Urge Him or Her to Support HF 498!
Any day, the House Public Safety and Civil Justice Committee will hear House File 498, introduced by State Representative Tony Cornish (R-24B). HF 498 would greatly strengthen the right to self-defense in Minnesota. HF 498, “Castle Doctrine” legislation, restores the right to self-defense in Minnesota by removing the duty to retreat when outside the home. HF 498 would allow a person to use force, including deadly force, against a violent attacker, and provides that a person who uses force against an attacker shall be immune from criminal prosecution.
Please contact your State Representative at (651) 296-2146 or (800) 657-3550 and respectfully urge him or her to support your right to self-defense. To find your State Representative, please click here.
