Yesterday, Wednesday, April 21, the Senate General Laws Committee passed House Bill 1802. HB1802 will now head to the full Senate for consideration.
HB1802, sponsored by State Representative Chuck Gatschenberger (R-13), would repeal an arcane 1971
In addition, the Senate General Laws Committee added provisions extending the “Castle Doctrine” to the boundary lines of rented or leased property. This doctrine would allow you to use force, including deadly force, for self-defense without fear of legal repercussions. Finally, a provision was added to HB1802 that would lower the Right-to-Carry age from 23 to 21.
Currently no date or time has been scheduled for the Senate to consider HB1802 so no action is needed at this time. Please continue to check your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates on this bill.
