The Pennsylvania House of Representatives will reconvene on Monday, April 11 to resume its legislative business and HB 40 (Castle Doctrine) could be brought up as early as that day. It is critical that Pennsylvania gun owners start contacting their Representative in support of this bill.
Introduced by state Representative Scott Perry (R-92), House Bill 40, NRA-backed Castle Doctrine legislation, 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.
Law-abiding gun owners of Pennsylvania should not be treated like criminals because they choose to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
