In a message posted on his website today, Thursday, March 13, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal (D) announced that he has signed House Bill 137, introduced by State Representative Lorraine Quarberg (R-28), otherwise known as the Castle Doctrine measure. While the bill was stripped of its "no duty to retreat in a public place" provision, the version that was sent to the Governor's desk did keep the "no duty to retreat inside one's home" language as well as the provision that individuals whose homes are unlawfully entered cannot be held civilly liable if they use deadly force to defend their home, self or family.
