Tomorrow, August 27, House Bill 40 takes effect. This
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. It would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.
The Senate companion bill to HB 40 was sponsored by state Senator Richard Alloway, II (R-33). Please thank both Representative Perry and Senator Alloway for sponsoring this important self-defense legislation. Contact information is listed below.
