GOVERNOR RILEY SIGNS ALABAMA "CASTLE DOCTRINE" INTO LAW!

 

On April 4, Alabama Governor Bob Riley (R) signed NRA-backed "Castle Doctrine" bill SB 283 into law.  Senator Larry Means (D-10), and Representative Albert Hall (D-22), sponsored the self-defense bill.

 

With overwhelming support, SB 283 passed the Alabama House by a vote of 82 to 9, and the Alabama State Senate by a vote of 30 to 2.

 

ILA's Chris W. Cox, stated, "We thank Governor Riley for signing this vital legislation into law for the people of Alabama.  Law-abiding citizens now have the choice to defend themselves and their families in the face of attack without fear of criminal prosecution and civil litigation."

 

The "Castle Doctrine" bill removes the "duty to retreat" if an individual is attacked in his or her home, vehicle, place of business, or any other place he or she has a legal right to be.  This legislation also states that victims may use necessary force to defend themselves against the attacker.

 

"I would like to thank the bill's sponsors, Senator Means and Representative Hall, and the Alabama State Senators and State Representatives who supported this bill.  As always, we also thank all the NRA members and lawful gun owners who contacted their representatives and urged them to support this vital self-defense measure," concluded Cox.

OKLAHOMA GOVERNOR SIGNS
NRA-BACKED "CASTLE DOCTRINE" BILL INTO LAW

 

Today, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry (D) signed HB 2615, the NRA-backed "Castle Doctrine" self-defense bill, into law.

 

"I want to thank Governor Brad Henry for signing this victims' rights bill into law," said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox.  "When you're confronted by a criminal, you don't have the luxury of time.  This bill states that if victims choose to stand their ground and fight, their decision will not be second-guessed by the State of Oklahoma.  The ability to protect yourself, your children, or your spouse from harm is important, whether you're in your home or outside."

 

HB 2615 simply states that if a criminal breaks into your home, your occupied vehicle or your place of business, you may presume he is there to do bodily harm and you may use any force necessary against him.  It also removes the "duty to retreat" if you are attacked in any place you have a legal right to be. 

 

Further, HB 2615 provides protection from criminal prosecution and civil litigation for those who defend themselves from criminal attack.  The "Castle Doctrine" bill met with overwhelming, bipartisan support, passing 96-2 in the state House and 83-4 in the Senate.  Oklahoma joins eight other states that have signed similar legislation into law this legislative cycle.

 

"On behalf of all NRA members in Oklahoma, I want to thank Governor Brad Henry for signing this important bill into law.  I'd also like to thank the bill's chief sponsors, Representative Kevin Calvey (R-94) and Senator Harry Coates (R-28), for their leadership in passing this vital measure," concluded Cox. "The 'Castle Doctrine' bill is about putting the law back on the side of the victim, the way it's supposed to be." - NRA News

Here in Commiefornia you have to retreat to a neighboring state before you are allowed to defend yourself.

 

And if you do dare to actually defend yourself instead of embracing and understanding the thug who is trying to kill you and your loved ones, then the state is going to have its way with you , immediately after apologizing to the thug, of course, for society betraying him (if he survives).
