Read the Text of the Bill

I must have missed this bill in the original run, but IO do have listed the House Version HB 311 (Bad Bill).

Same as in the House version, the original Senate bill was in conflict with the updating of Use of Deadly Force for Self Defense to include Threatening to Use Deadly Force . The Committee Substitute now carves a legal niche for self defense.

This version was voted Yeas 7 & Nays 0 in the Infrastructure and Security Committee.  So it will either cancel out HB 311 or the House will also do a correction to carve the self defense niche.

Till the House does the change, I will only grade this as Acceptable.  Just don’t want to count the chickens just yet.

    1. Signs like “You are no longer trespassing, you are now a target? ” Protected by Smith and Wesson”?
      I would say no (IANAL) on First Amendment grounds, but I am not a fan of giving prosecutors nails for my coffin.

      Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, no normal and peaceful person would have this horrendous signs as warning. They speak to the bloodthirsty mind of the Defendant. He was itching for a kill.”

      That kind of rhetoric in court

  1. In the first sentence, Threats: Prohibiting threats to use, including future threats to use, a firearm or weapon with specified intent; what does “future threats” mean? Any threat is to do something in the future. Is there some time limit for a threat?

    I mean, if I tell a perp, “if you take one more step, I’ll shoot”, that one step is in the future, even if only a few seconds into the future. So does future threat mean I’ll shoot you in an hour? Tomorrow or next week?
