North Dakota: Stand Your Ground Legislation Passed out of Senate Committee

Gun Rights

Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed Stand Your Ground legislation, House Bill 1498, by a 5 to 2 vote.  The measure now heads to the Senate Floor where it could receive a vote as early as tomorrow.  Please contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1498.

House Bill 1498 would strengthen North Dakotans’ fundamental right to self-defense anywhere they are legally allowed to be.  Victims of violent crime who respond with defensive force while protecting themselves or their loved ones should not have to face the additional threat of criminal or civil prosecution.  If enacted, law-abiding citizens would no longer be required to retreat before defending themselves.

Again, please contact your state Senator and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1498!​​
