Alaskans, HB80 Needs Your Help

HB80 Needs Your Help
Please ask Finance Chair Senator Stedman to schedule HB80 for a vote. Please be respectful but firm that we want a vote on this bill. Senator Stedman doesn’t want to be left holding the blame for this bill not passing.

From the NRA:
House Bill 80, critical self-defense legislation, passed in the state House at the end of last session, and was reported by the state Senate Judiciary Committee on March 23.  This bill has since been languishing in the Senate Finance Committee. With only three days left in this legislative session, it is imperative that HB 80 be heard in committee immediately.

Introduced by state Representative Mark Neuman (R-15), HB 80 is important self-defense legislation that would provide that a law-abiding person, who is justified in using deadly force in self-defense, has “no duty-to-retreat” from an attack if the person is in any place that that person has a legal right to be.

If your state Senator is a member of the Senate Finance Committee, please contact him or her TODAY and respectfully request that he or she vote for HB 80 and move it to the Senate floor.  The committee members’ contact information is provided below. To determine who your state Senator is, please click here.

You can contact your state Senator and all the members of the Senate Finance Committee at the same time, by taking advantage of Alaska’s Public Opinion Messaging (POM) system offered through Alaska’s Legislative Information Offices (LIO).  For information on the LIOs and how the POM system works, please click here; to utilize the online POM form, please click here.
