Yesterday, the House of Representatives held a floor vote on self-defense legislation, House Bill 197. Thanks to your strong support, this bill passed and will advance to the Senate this session.
House Bill 197 is a common-sense measure that extends the justified physical force in defense of a person, when it is believed that another person is likely to use unlawful force against the individual in a vehicle, dwelling, or curtilage. This ensures that an individual maintains their right to defend themselves and their loved ones in the event of an unlawful attacker.
House Bill 81, a similar self-defense measure, was tabled in the House of Representatives.
Again, thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their State Representative in strong support of this self-defense measure.
