While gun owners in thirty-six states enjoy Stand-Your-Ground law protections, including ‘blue’ states like Illinois and California, gun owners in New York do not.
Instead, the law in New York gives the upper hand to criminals by requiring that gun owners retreat from them, before taking defensive action.
What’s more, if you do use justifiable force to defend yourself or your loved ones, you are totally vulnerable to politically motived criminal prosecutions and the devastating civil lawsuits that follow.
Stand-Your-Ground legislation would solve these issues by removing the current requirement that you retreat before taking defensive action, from any place that you are lawfully allowed to be.
Even better, this legislation stipulates that you are immune from criminal and civil prosecution unless there is probable cause that you committed a crime!
This legislation (S-7915/Assembly Bill # Pending) is being sponsored by Senator Rob Ortt and Assemblyman David DiPietro and is gaining cosponsors quickly!
With the elections on the horizon, now is the time to make sure that your legislators cosponsor this important legislation as well!
