    LOUISIANA
    On June 30, Governor Kathleen Blanco (D) signed HB 1097, by
    Representative Eric LaFleur (D-38). This NRA-backed legislation grants
    civil immunity to crime victims who lawfully use force up to and
    including deadly force to protect themselves against a violent attack.
    HB 1097 is the companion bill to HB 89 (also by Representative LaFleur),
    the NRA-supported "Castle Doctrine" bill, which created presumptions in
    law for the use of force against intruders in your home, car, or place
    of business, and explicitly states in law that you have no "duty to
    retreat" from criminal attack if you are in a place where you have a
    legal right to be. HB 89 was signed by the Governor on June 2, and both
    bills take effect on August 15.

    NEW JERSEY
    Governor Corzine (D) and the New Jersey legislature reached an agreement
    on the state budget Thursday afternoon allowing the legislature, along
    with proposed anti-gun legislation, to go into summer recess. During
    the recess, NRA will be working with House and Senate leadership to
    defeat these proposed bills. Please keep checking your e-mail and
    www.NRAILA.org for updates.

    NEW YORK
    Mayor Joseph Delfino (R) and the Common Council of the City of White
    Plains has proposed an anti-gun local law, Introductory Local Law No. 3,
    which affects businesses and owners of air pistols and air rifles, also
    known as BB or pellet guns. A public hearing has been scheduled for
    August 7, 2006. Introductory Local Law No. 3 would require any person
    who sells, possesses or transports any air pistol or air rifle to obtain
    a license and pay an annual fee in the City of White Plains. Violators
    of this local law will be guilty of a misdemeanor and may have to pay a
    fine or serve jail time. In order to stop this proposed anti-gun
    legislation, attendance at this public hearing is needed! The public
    hearing is August 7, 2006, at 7:30 p.m., to be held at the Council
    Chambers on 255 Main Street. Please contact Mayor Delfino and the
    Common Council members immediately at (914) 422-1411 and ask him or her
    to oppose Introductory Local Law No. 3. To find contact information on
    your Common Council member, please use the following link:

    Chris, I know there is legislation in Washington that states that we have no duty to retreat, but I dont yet think that we have a "castle doctrine" bill in effect. HB 3065 & SB6139 both would protect us civilly from lawsuits as well as allowing us assume anyone unlawfully on our property is there to commit "great bodily harm" to us. Just curious where you get your info from as ive been unable to find the status of those two bills. If checked out states websites and all I see is they were "referred to judiciary." Are the above differences the only ones between "no duty to retreat" and the "castle doctine"? Ive found a lot of conflicting info. Thanks!

    Benjaminm0110,

    Hopefully Chris can, but I cannot follow your question.

    Chris posted about events in specific states, GA, LA, NJ, and NY. But your question seems to be about a proposed Federal law. Are you asking about something other than the info he posted in this thread?

    Just curious, as I would love to see a Federal "Castle Doctrine" that the states could not preempt.

    Ben - these posts are direct from NRA-ILA and as I am doubtful all folks get the updates - seems handy to post them here. Just passing on info really.

    Could be some further digging on nra-ola.org could add more info but I have nothing else to hand right now.

    Thanks for posting the info. I am not a NRA member so I don't get this type of info sent to me regularly.

    You should be. If you're a gun owner, you ought to be an NRA member -- if you wish to continue being a gun owner, that is.

    I used to be but I dropped my membership a little over 10 years ago in protest to some of their bargaining away of my rights. The only groups I would cut a check to now adays is GOA and LEAA.

    madmike,

    sorry, didnt mean to be confusing... i guess im curious what the difference is between states that only have a "no duty to retreat" statute compared to an actual "castle doctrine." some sites ive found say WA is castle doctrine state, but if we are trying to pass legislation to become one, then we obviously arent yet. hence the conflicting info...


    P95- Thanks for the info and updates, it looks like everyone apprecaties it!
