Fairfax, VA – -( Wednesday, state Senator Anthony Bouchard and state Representative Tim Salazar pre-filed Senate File 71 for the 2018 Legislative Session.

Under Senate File 71, a law-abiding citizen would have no duty to retreat from any place where the person is lawfully present before using force to defend themselves.  Further, this bill would shift the burden of proof to the state, so the state would have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that a person charged with an offense that involved the use of force against another, did not use that force in self-defense.

It is unreasonable that victims of crime should have to worry about being arrested or prosecuted if they are required to use force to defend themselves or their family.

This legislation also provides protection from civil liability and frivolous lawsuits brought against individuals who have used reasonable defensive force to protect themselves or others.

Stay-tuned to NRA-ILA for more information on this and other firearm-related bill during the 2018 Wyoming Legislative Session.

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
