Earlier this week, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a public hearing on House Bill 197, and in the coming weeks they will vote on this self-defense legislation. Please contact members of the committee and urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 197.
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.
Again, please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 197.
