House Bill 80, introduced by state Representative Mark Neuman (R-15), is important self-defense legislation that would provide that a law-abiding person, who is justified in using deadly force in self-defense, has “no duty-to-retreat” from an attack if the person is in any place that that person has a legal right to be.  HB 80 passed in the state House at the end of last session and was heard by the state Senate Judiciary Committee on March 7.  However, a committee quorum was not present, so HB 80 will receive a second hearing this Friday, March 16, at 1:30 p.m. in BELTZ 105 of the Thomas B. Stewart Legislative Office Building, which is attached to the Capitol.
