Alaska: House Committee Advances Self-Defense Legislation

Thursday, February 14, 2013

On February 8, House Bill 24, important self-defense legislation introduced by state Representative Mark Neuman (R-10), passed unanimously in the House Judiciary Committee. This bill now goes to the House Finance Committee where a hearing has not yet been scheduled.

Under existing state law, there is no duty-to-retreat if a person is in their home, business, or on their own property.  HB 24 would extend this to recognize the right to use force, including deadly force, for self-defense to include anywhere a person has a legal right to be.

If your state Representative serves on the House Finance Committee, please contact him or her TODAY, and respectfully urge their support for HB 24.  To determine your state Representative, please click here.  Contact information for members of the House Finance Committee is provided below.
