Yesterday, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed important self-defense reform legislation by a 164 to 37 vote. To see how your state Representative voted click here.
Introduced by state Representative Scott Perry (R-92), House Bill 40, NRA-backed Castle Doctrine legislation, 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 into law, it would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.
Law-abiding gun owners of Pennsylvania should not be treated like criminals because they choose to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
HB 40 now moves to the state Senate for committee assignment. The NRA will keep you posted on the status of HB 40.
