A vote on Senate Bill 8 by the Colorado Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee has been delayed until next week.
Sponsored by State Senator Ted Harvey (R-30), SB8 seeks to expand Colorado’s Castle Doctrine self-defense law. SB 8 would amend Colorado’s current version of the Castle Doctrine to ensure that all citizens have a right to use force, including deadly force, against a violent attacker not only within their own dwellings, but their places of business as well.
SB8 is critically important as it expands Coloradans’ right to self-defense and protects victims from frivolous civil lawsuits by criminals or their family.
Please continue to contact the members of the State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee and respectfully urge them to vote for SB 8.
Chairman Suzanne Williams (D-28)
State Senator Betty Boyd (D-21)
State Senator Bill Cadman (R-10)
State Senator David Schultheis (R-9)
