    Default CASTLE DOCTRINE Pennsylvania

    "Castle Doctrine" Heading to Governor Rendell's Desk!
    Please Contact Governor Rendell Today!
    This afternoon, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted 161-35 to concur on House Bill 1926. HB 1926 will now move to Governor Ed Rendell's (D) desk for his consideration.

    HB 1926 would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their home and any place outside of their home where they have a legal right to be. If enacted, this law would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker's family when force is used.

    Please contact Governor Rendell today and respectfully urge him to protect law-abiding Pennsylvanian's by signing HB 1926 into law.

    The Governor can be reached at:
    225 Main Capitol Building
    Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17120

    Phone: (717) 787-2500
    Fax: (717) 772-8284
    To email the Governor, please click here.

    I called his office anyway. Please call and let him know how many support this bill. I would be surprised if he did sign it. Hopefully with a new repub Gov. It will eventually pass. Got to keep letting them know.
    Maybe he'll sign it by accident!

    My letter has been sent.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe there are many, if any, politicians who are on the side of law abiding gun owners in Philadelphia, Mr. Rendell included. It looks like most everyone else in the state, in both houses, voted for the bill.

    Well, that certainly takes the gray area out of it! No wiggle room for the Governor! I'm guessing he's going to go lame duck liberal and veto it. If that ends up being the case, hopefully it can be presented again in the next session with a Republican Governor.

    Come on Mr Rendell. Sign it into law! This was nowhere near a party line vote in the General Assembly. Even most of the 102 Democrats in the house voted for it! I give the General Assembly a lot of credit for the way they voted.

    Lets just hope he is being absent-minded...
