This is a historic time for law-abiding citizens in the Commonwealth. On June 28, Gov. Tom Corbett signed House Bill 40, also known as The Castle Doctrine, into law. Previous law stated that if an individual determines someone is a threat to his or her life, the would-be victim must first retreat if able. The new law now eliminates the duty to retreat before using lethal force inside of a home, vehicle or place he or she is legally permitted to be. The Castle Doctrine creates a presumption that if someone breaks into your home or attacks you on the street and they are knowingly trying to harm you, as a law-abiding citizen, you would be authorized to use force, including deadly force, to protect yourself, your family, and others.

There are exceptions. The presumption does not apply if the person entering the home was another resident of that home, a law enforcement officer or a parent, grandparent or other guardian removing a child from the home or vehicle. Additionally, the presumption does not apply if you were using your home or vehicle with criminal intent. There is a civil immunity safeguard built into the bill as well. The new law provides legal safeguards for a lawabiding citizen from being sued in the act of self-defense. It does not endorse unlawful aggression; rather, it provides individuals with the necessary legal protection to respond to unlawful aggression. I voted in favor of the Castle Doctrine, and was a proud co-sponsor of this legislation.
