Update on SB 5418

Tuesday, 20 December 2011 09:01 Marty Hayes
The momentum is beginning.  Dave Workman recently wrote about SB5418 here, and did a very good job exploring some of the issues:

http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-seattle/push-on-for-stronger-deadly-force-law-wa

And I understand the issue has been discussed on WA CCW e-mail list, and as the comments indicate,  and according to the comments on the previous article, we are starting to get some State Senators contacted. At this time, it is vitally important to contact your own state Senator, and ask him or her to co-sponsor this bill, or if they are one of the co-sponsors, then thank them for doing so.

I am starting a legal analysis of the issue, going back through the cases referred to in State v. Brightman, to give a clearer picture on how the WA Supreme Court came about to eliminate our per se right to use deadly force against a home invader.  More to follow.
