House Bill 40, NRA-backed castle doctrine legislation, passed in the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 13 to 1 vote on June 14. This bill is expected to be considered in the state Senate sometime next week.
Introduced by state Representative Scott Perry (R-92), HB 40 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.
