Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, Thursday, October 14, the Pennsylvania Senate passed House Bill 1926 by a vote of 45-4. The bill now returns to the House where it could be concurred with on Monday, October 18.

HB1926 contains State Senator Richard Alloway’s (R-33) “Castle Doctrine” amendment.

This language would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their homes and any places outside of their home where they have a legal right to be.

If enacted, this law would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.

Please contact your State Representative TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote for HB1926 with the Alloway amendment. Contact information can be found by clicking here.

IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD!

It only makes sense that this passes in every state. Everywhere. What the hell? Why would you protect criminals from getting hurt while committing violent crimes? If you're worried about getting shot maybe you shouldn't be breaking into houses or robbing people.
