On Thursday, March 13, House File 498 died in the House Public Safety and Civil Justice Committee by a tie vote of 9 to 9. Introduced by State Representative Tony Cornish (R-24B), HF 498 would have greatly strengthened the right to self-defense in Minnesota. This ?Castle Doctrine? legislation would have allowed a person to use force, including deadly force, against a violent attacker, and provides that a person who uses force against an attacker shall be immune from criminal prosecution. Thank you to all those who contacted their State Representative in an attempt to pass this important legislation.
