North Dakota: Stand Your Ground Legislation Joins Other Pro-Gun Legislation on Governor’s Desk

Gun Rights

Today, the North Dakota House concurred on Stand Your Ground Legislation, House Bill 1498, sending the measure to the desk of Governor Doug Burgum for his signature.  This measure now sits alongside House Bill 1450 which was approved yesterday.  Please contact Governor Burgum and ask him to sign House Bill 1450 and House Bill 1498.

House Bill 1450 enhances North Dakota’s permit laws by reducing certain minor violations on its list of prohibiting factors for applicants.  HB 1450 would allow more individuals to exercise their constitutional right to self-defense. 

House Bill 1498 will strengthen North Dakotans’ fundamental right to self-defense anywhere they are legally allowed to be.  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 enacted, law-abiding citizens would no longer be required to retreat before defending themselves.
