House Bill 80, introduced by state Representative Mark Neuman (R-15), is important self-defense legislation that would provide that a law-abiding person, who is justified in using deadly force in self-defense, has “no duty-to-retreat” from an attack if the person is in any place that person has a legal right to be.
HB 80 passed in the state House at the end of last session and was heard by the state Senate Judiciary Committee on March 7. However, a committee quorum was not present, so HB 80 will receive a second hearing. The next hearing is scheduled for Friday, March 16, at 1:30 p.m. in Room BELTZ 105 of the Thomas B. Stewart Legislative Office Building, which is attached to the Capitol.
Please contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support HB 80. Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
