HB 80 passes in the Alaska House
House Bill 80, sponsored by Rep. Mark Neuman, R-Susitna Valley, clarifies the state's already-recognized right to use deadly force in self defense. "Alaskans have a right to stand their ground, HB 80 further clarifies that to say you have that right where you have a legal right to be," Neuman said. "This clarifies that right extends beyond your home or place of work to a public place.
"The bill places the duty to retreat on the criminal or person who means to do you harm. We've expressly left the justification for the use of deadly force unchanged," Neuman said. "Alaskans deserve full protection of their constitutional and human rights to self defense and to keep and bear arms for personal protection."
This bill passed 33-6
On to the Senate, I have already talked to my State Senator in person. He will do every thing he can to pass this bill, I kindly ask the other Alaskans posting on this board to do the same, or at least send your Senators an email in support.
A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
