State Senator Mark Christensen tells us that he is going to try again to revise the state’s self defense law. Christensen says that currently you have to prove that you acted in reasonable terms if you use force on an intruder with a duty to retreat if possible.
“If they can break into your house and you have a duty of retreat, then we’re saying criminals have a right in our home and that’s wrong.”
Senator Christensen was unsuccesful in his efforts last year to get a form of the Castle Doctrine passed. The National Rifle Association is supporting the revision.
