Alloway Applauds House Return to Session, Urges Castle Doctrine Floor Vote

Alloway Applauds House Return to Session, Urges Castle Doctrine Floor Vote
 
HARRISBURG – Senator Richard Alloway II (R-33) today applauded the recent decision by the House of Representatives to return to voting session next week and urged a floor vote on legislation to expand the Castle Doctrine in Pennsylvania.
 
“Leaders in the House deserve to be commended for their decision to return to voting session next week to complete work on a number of pressing issues for Pennsylvania residents,” Alloway said. “I am hopeful that they will address House Bill 1926 to help protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners before wrapping up the 2009-10 legislative session.”
 
House Bill 1926, which passed the Senate on October 14 with broad bipartisan support, would remove the “duty to retreat” clause when an individual is threatened by an attacker in any place that individual has a right to be, including the individual’s home or vehicle.
 
Alloway said the bill would provide important protections against criminal prosecution or civil litigation for those who act in self-defense.
