    Civil Liability In PA?

    Does PA have any thing written into law that would protect oneself from a civil liability suit in case I would ever need to use my firearm in a justifiable self defense situation? wow that was a long sentence... lol. I should probably check this out with a lawyer, but I would like the opinions from the forum as well.

    I know there has been talk about a free floating "Castle Doctrine" bill in the PA House. When I went to the gun rally a few weeks back in Harrisburg, I talked with various state reps. It has definitely been talked about in committee and there is a good chance it will be put up for debate on the floor in the near future.

    If the Mods don't mind you can get further info over at Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association its geared more towards Pennsylvania firearm laws. I'm sure you can find something over there more detailed on the subject. If not just PM me and I can help you out.
