Alaska: Self-Defense Reform Bill Scheduled for Senate Committee Hearing

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Please Contact Your State Senator Today

House Bill 80, introduced by state Representative Mark Neuman (R-15), is important self-defense legislation that would provide that a law-abiding person, who is justified in using deadly force in self-defense, has “no duty to retreat” from an attack if the person is in any place the person has a legal right to be.

HB 80 passed in the state House at the end of last session and has finally been assigned a hearing date in the state Senate Judiciary Committee.  This hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, March 7, at 1:30 p.m. in Room number BELTZ 105 of the Thomas B. Stewart Legislative Office Building, which is attached to the Capitol.

Please contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support HB 80.  Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.

Also, please contact members of the state Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully request that they vote in favor of HB 80. Their contact information is listed below.
