    Castle Doctrine (PA HB40) Headed to Governor Corbett's desk...

    ...and he will sign it, in all likelihood, as he promised to do. Here is a copy of the bill:

    Regular Session 2011-2012 House Bill 40 P.N. 1038*

    The General Assembly finds that:
    (1) It is proper for law-abiding people to protect

    1 themselves, their families and others from intruders and
    2 attackers without fear of prosecution or civil action for
    3 acting in defense of themselves and others.
    4 (2) The Castle Doctrine is a common law doctrine of
    5 ancient origins which declares that a home is a person's
    6 castle.
    7 (3) Section 21 of Article I of the Constitution of
    8 Pennsylvania guarantees that the "right of the citizens to
    9 bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be
    10 questioned."
    11 (4) Persons residing in or visiting this Commonwealth
    12 have a right to expect to remain unmolested within their
    13 homes or vehicles.
    14 (5) No person should be required to surrender his or her
    15 personal safety to a criminal, nor should a person be
    16 required to needlessly retreat in the face of intrusion or
    17 attack outside the person's home or vehicle.

    I can't wait for the streets of Pennsylvania to run red with the blood of children.

    HB40 was signed by the governor June 28th, takes effect 60 days later. The text of the bill is a sure cure for insomnia, but near as I can tell it implements the General Assemblie's findings as summarized in the original post (taken from the text of the bill).
