Pennsylvania: Castle Doctrine Bill to be Heard in Senate Committee Tomorrow
Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee TODAY!
Tomorrow, House Bill 40, NRA-backed castle doctrine legislation, will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee at 11:30 a.m. This bill passed in the state House by a 164 to 37 vote on April 12.
Introduced by state Representative Scott Perry (R-92), HB 40 would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their home and any place outside of their home where they have a legal right to be. If enacted into law, it would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.
Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support HB 40 with no anti-gun amendments.
