Arkansas: Stand Your Ground in Arkansas Tomorrow! Pass SB 24 AS IS!

NRA-backed Stand Your Ground legislation, Senate Bill 24, will be considered tomorrow at 2:00pm in the House Judiciary Committee, and your lawmakers need to hear from you now!  This important legislation is a huge step forward for self-defense rights and law-abiding gun owners in the Land of Opportunity!  Thirty-four other states have passed Stand Your Ground laws allowing their citizens to more effectively protect themselves instead of forcing unnecessary risks upon them.  Senate Bill 24 specifically uses language similar to that of Florida’s law, which is seen as the gold-standard for SYG.  NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters are strongly encouraged to contact their State Representative, as well as Members of the House Judiciary Committee, and ask them to SUPPORT Stand Your Ground Legislation, Senate Bill 24, IN ITS CURRENT FORM. 

Senate Bill 24 will strengthen Arkansans’ fundamental right to self-defense anywhere they are legally allowed to be. — If enacted, law-abiding citizens would no longer be required by law to retreat before using force to defend themselves.  Further, victims of violent crime who respond with defensive force while protecting themselves or their loved ones should not have to face the additional threat of criminal or civil prosecution. 

If you and your family are attacked in a location that you legally have a right to be, you shouldn’t be required to go through a checklist of actions before self-defense is an option.

It is more important than ever for NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters to call their State Representative at 501-682-6211, as well as Members of the House Judiciary Committee, and ask them to SUPPORT Stand Your Ground Legislation, Senate Bill 24, with NO changes or amendments.
