Pennsylvania “Castle Doctrine” Legislation Still Needs Your Help!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Please Contact Governor Rendell and Your County District Attorney Today!

On Monday, November 15, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted 161 to 35 to concur on House Bill 1926.  HB 1926 will now move to Governor Ed Rendell’s (D) desk for his consideration. 

Unfortunately, the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association is opposed this legislation and is urging Governor Rendell to veto this important self-defense bill.  This Association does not speak for all District Attorneys in Pennsylvania.  Please take a moment to call your County District Attorney and urge him or her to speak out in support of HB 1926. Contact information can be found below. 

HB 1926 would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their home and any place outside of their home where they have a legal right to be.  If enacted, this law would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used. 

Also, please contact Governor Rendell today and respectfully urge him to protect law-abiding Pennsylvanian’s by signing HB 1926 into law.

The Governor can be reached at:

225 Main Capitol Building
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17120

Phone: (717) 787-2500
Fax: (717) 772-8284
