Panel rejects bill allowing people to kill intruders

From NBC12 News
Monday, February 27, 2006

A Senate committee rejected legislation Monday that would've allowed you to kill anyone who breaks into your house and physically threatens you.

The bill essentially would have written the common law theory of self defense into the Virginia code. Republican Delegate John Welch of Virginia Beach said his bill would make it clear to Virginians that they have a right to use deadly force against an intruder.

Henry County Commonwealth's Attorney Bob Bushnell urged the Courts of Justice Committee to reject the bill, which he said amounted to ''a license to kill.''

The committee killed the bill on a voice vote.




Nice I guess I should cook them dinner and pop in a movie!

Bloody hell. Even in Massachusetts, we have the right to defend ourselves in our homes using deadly force. There is no duty to retreat here.

The supporters should have played ball like the liberals do. Wrap this law up in a personal, heart string tugging story. Case in point, they should have called it the Harvey Bill, after the Richmond family that had their throats cut on new years day by home invaders.
