Charlotte, NC –-( House Bill 80, self-defense legislation, passed in the state House at the end of last session, and was reported by the state Senate Judiciary Committee on March 23.

HB 80 is now pending in the Senate Finance Committee and will likely be heard there soon.

HB 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 that person has a legal right to be.

Please contact members of the Senate Finance Committee TODAY and respectfully request that they vote for HB 80. Their contact information is provided below. Also, please contact your state Senator and respectfully urge him or her to support HB 80. Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
