Colorado: Self-Defense Reform Bill to be Heard on Monday, March 15

Monday, March 8, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the House Judiciary Committee Today!

An important pro-gun bill (House Bill 1094) will be heard by the House Judiciary Committee on Monday, March 15 at 1:30 p.m. 

Sponsored by State Representative Cory Gardner (R-63), HB1094 would extend Colorado's self-defense law to places of business.  If passed, this legislation would permit all employees to defend themselves by any means of force, including deadly force, if they have reasonable belief that an intruder has committed, or intends to commit a crime, during unlawful entry.  The exclusion of businesses in the current self-defense law has been a noticeable omission, which this bill would rectify. 

Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support HB1094.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
