Arkansas: Senate Will Consider Stand Your Ground Legislation Next Week
On Tuesday, January 19, the Senate is scheduled to hold a floor vote on Stand Your Ground Legislation, Senate Bill 24. Please contact your State Senator and ask them to support important self-defense legislation, Senate Bill 24.
Senate Bill 24 will eliminate the duty to retreat for victims of a crime — if passed, a victim who is attacked will no longer be required by law to try and run away. Individuals should not be legally required to retreat from a place they are lawfully present before being allowed to defend themselves.
Again, please contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Stand Your Ground legislation, Senate Bill 24!
