Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee Hears Testimony on “Castle Doctrine” Self-Defense Bill

Friday, November 20, 2009

Please Continue Contacting the Members of the House Judiciary Committee

Yesterday, the Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee took testimony on House Bill 40.  No action was taken on the bill.

HB40, sponsored by State Representative Scott Perry (R-92), would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their homes and any places outside of their home where they have a legal right to be.  It is clearly stated that there would be no “duty to retreat” from an attacker, allowing law-abiding citizens to stand their ground to protect themselves and their family.  HB40 would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used. 

Thank you to the pro-gun voices who spoke in support of this vital self-defense legislation.

Please continue contacting the members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support HB40.  Contact information can be found below.
