Important Step for Pennsylvania’s “Castle Doctrine”

Bill Scheduled for Monday!

Please Contact Your State Representative Immediately!

As we reported , a discharge petition was filed for House Bill 40 , Pennsylvania’s “Castle Doctrine” bill. The discharge petition will now be considered on Monday, September 27.

HB40, sponsored by State Representative Scott Perry (R-92), 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. HB40 would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.

Please continue to contact your State Representative and respectfully urge them to vote for the discharge petition and to support HB40 on the floor. Contact information can be found by clicking here .

Procedural Motion Helps Advance House Bill 40 to
Final Vote Without Hostile Amendments

Please Continue to Contact Your State Representative!



Thanks to a rarely used procedural motion, House Bill 40 passed second consideration today by a vote of 156-41. This special motion prevented the attachment of a large number of dangerous anti-gun riders. HB40 will be considered for a final floor vote TOMORROW, Tuesday, October 5.

HB40, sponsored by State Representative Scott Perry (R-92), is the "Castle Doctrine" bill that 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. "Castle Doctrine" would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker's family when force is used.

Anti-gun zealots in Harrisburg sought to hijack HB40 with language that would: ban semi-automatic rifles; impose "one-gun-a-month" purchasing restrictions; enact a prohibition on the use of out of state Right-to-Carry permits by Pennsylvania residents while inside the Commonwealth; require mandatory reporting of lost or stolen firearms; order the mandatory storage of firearms within the home; and increase regulations on firearm ownership in Philadelphia. This attempt failed!

Please contact your State Representative IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to vote for HB40. Pennsylvania lawmakers need to stop criminal coddling judges from putting the rights of criminals before the rights of the law-abiding.

Not really practical at this point, to merge them.
