Wisconsin: Castle Doctrine Passes Assembly, Advances to Senate

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Wisconsin Assembly Bill 69 passed in the Assembly yesterday by a 71 to 24 vote with two votes absent.  This bill will have a vote by the full Senate later today. 

Commonly known as the “Castle Doctrine,” AB 69 would provide essential protections for law-abiding citizens who defend themselves and their families from a criminal looking to do them harm. “Castle Doctrine” establishes the presumption that an individual who forcibly enters ones home, business or occupied motor vehicle is there to cause death or great bodily harm, and allows force, including deadly force, against that person.  This bill also eliminates any “duty to retreat” so that law-abiding citizens no longer must turn their back on a criminal and try to run when attacked. Finally, AB 69 would provide that any person who uses force authorized by law shall not be prosecuted for using such force and also prohibits criminals and their families from suing victims for injuring or killing the criminals who have attacked them. In short, it restores rights to law-abiding people and forces judges and prosecutors to focus on protecting victims.

Please contact your state Senator today and respectfully urge him or her to support NRA-backed bill, AB 69.  To contact your state Senator, click here.
