HB40, sponsored by State Representative Scott Perry (R-92), is the “Castle Doctrine” bill that 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. The “Castle Doctrine” would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.
Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and your State Senator, IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to vote for HB40.
