More legal stuff

Haven’t blogged in a while.  To be honest, it’s been a slow week.  I do, however, have some good news for West Virginians.  Keep reading…

WEST VIRGINIA:  “Castle Doctrine” Bill Passes Senate, Heads to House!  The Senate passed Senate Bill 145 unanimously on Tuesday, February 19.  The bill now heads to the House Judiciary Committee for its consideration.  This bill authorizes the use of deadly force by law-abiding citizens against an attacker in their homes and any places outside of their homes where they have a legal right to be.  It is clearly stated that there is no “duty to retreat” from an attacker, allowing law-abiding citizens to stand their ground to protect themselves and their family.  SB145 also protects individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.  Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to pass SB145 to bolster West Virginians’ right to self-defense.  Please click here for contact information.

Pro-Gun, Pro-Hunting Bill Passes Senate!  On Monday, February 18 the State Senate passed Senate Bill 9, introduced by State Senator Billy Wayne Bailey (D-9), by a 29-3 margin.  SB9 would mandate firearm and hunter safety education programs be offered in public schools for students in the eighth through twelfth grades.  However, it would not be mandatory that students take the course.  This is important legislation that will teach children to hunt safely and ethically from an early age.  They will also learn how to handle firearms safely while hunting, while participating in sport competitions, or at home.  Completion of the course will enable students to obtain their hunting licenses.  SB9 has been assigned to the House Education Committee.  Please contact the members of the committee and respectfully urge them to support this important hunter/firearm education legislation.  Please click here for contact information.

So, cool, yeah?  I certainly think so.  If any of my pro-gun WV buddies are reading this, please help us out and get in touch with the above respective organizations!

Thanks, and catch you on the flip side.
