House Bill 160 passed the Senate Judiciary and will be considered by the full Senate tomorrow, Wednesday, May 12.
Simply put, HB160 would allow a person to brandish a firearm in response to a forceful threat. State Senator Robert Letourneau (R-19) offered an important amendment to strengthen the bill but it failed in committee by a vote of 3-2. Senator Letourneau will again offer the amendment on the Senate floor.
Please contact your State Senator IMMEDIATELY and ask them to support Senator Letourneau’s amendment and to pass HB160. Contact information for your State Senator can be found here.
