Nebraska: Stand Your Ground Legislation to be Heard Friday in Judiciary Committee

This Friday, February 27, the Judiciary Committee will be holding a hearing on Legislative Bill 612, which makes a critical improvement to self-defense laws in Nebraska. 

LB 612 would remove a person’s “duty to retreat” from an attacker, allowing law-abiding citizens to stand their ground and protect themselves or their family anywhere they have a legal right to be.  It allows law-abiding citizens to use deadly force in situations where it is necessary to protect themselves against death, serious bodily harm, robbery, arson, burglary, kidnapping, or sexual intercourse compelled by force or threat, without a duty to retreat.  LB 612 also would enhance the protections against criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits when justifiable force is used. 

This legislation respects and strengthens your inherent right to self-defense, and it needs your immediate support.  Using the contact information provided below, please call and email members of the Nebraska Judiciary Committee and urge them to vote in support of LB 612.
