Important Step for Pennsylvania’s “Castle Doctrine” Bill Scheduled for Monday!

Friday, September 24, 2010

Please Contact Your State Representative Immediately!

As we reported, a discharge petition was filed for House Bill 40, Pennsylvania’s “Castle Doctrine” bill.  The discharge petition will now be considered on Monday, September 27.

HB40, sponsored by State Representative Scott Perry (R-92), would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their homes and any places outside of their home where they have a legal right to be.  HB40 would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used. 

Please continue to contact your State Representative and respectfully urge them to vote for the discharge petition and to support HB40 on the floor.  Contact information can be found by clicking
