Maryland: Civil Immunity Legislation to be Heard Tomorrow, April 6!

Monday, April 5, 2010

Tomorrow, at 1 p.m. the Maryland House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 411, sponsored by State Senator Mac Middleton (D-28).  SB411 would provide civil immunity from damages when force, including deadly force, is used and reasonable under the circumstances to repel an attack in the persons dwelling or place of business.

Maryland residents deserve the right to defend themselves and loved ones without the threat of being bankrupted in a civil suit.  The right to self-defense is one of the most important civil liberties. That right should not be negated by laws that allow attackers to sue their intended victims.  Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee listed below and respectfully urge them to support SB411.
