Castle Doctrine Self-Defense Bill to be Considered in Wisconsin on Thursday!

Monday, March 22, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the Senate Judiciary Today!

On Thursday, March 25 at 10:00 a.m., the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 129, the “Castle Doctrine” bill.  This bill would help restore the basic right of self-defense that all Americans are entitled to. 

Under this bill, if a person used defensive force that was intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm, the court must presume that the person reasonably believed that the force was necessary.  While the Wisconsin State Constitution already recognizes self-defense as a guaranteed right, this bill would further clarify it. 

Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support SB129.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
