    VA: Another Smack in the Face

    From NRA:

    Virginia: "Castle Doctrine" Legislation Defeated in Senate Committee


    In another sign that the Senate Courts of Justice Committee is out of touch with the common beliefs of the citizens of Virginia, a bill designed to codify the common law principle known as the "Castle Doctrine," was defeated by a vote of 9 to 6.

    House Bill 854, sponsored by Delegate Will Morefield (R-3), would have provided immunity from civil prosecution if someone used force, including deadly force, to defend themselves and their loved ones if attacked in their home by someone who has entered unlawfully.

    This is just another example of the difference between the House and Senate chambers in Virginia and how they view your individual rights. The House of Delegates passed HB854 on February 16 by a margin of 75-24.

    :Yup:

    Two of the even the relatively pro-RKBA Dems voted the party line, on this one. Reynolds (D) came through. OTOH, Edwards (D) is a big disappointment to me.

    Voting for the bill:

    Quayle, Norment, Reynolds, Obenshain, McDougle, Hurt

    Voting against the bill:

    Marsh, Saslaw, Howell, Lucas, Edwards, Puller, Deeds, McEachin, Petersen

    Two moving from the Anti-RKBA to the Pro side and this would be on its way to the floor.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
