Tomorrow morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider House Bill 1212. This self-defense legislation was passed out of the House with strong support, and now committee members need to hear from you! Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1212.
House Bill 1212 clarifies the use of force under South Dakota’s Stand Your Ground laws. The bill enhances your right to self-defense by strengthening and explaining when justifiable force can be used in defense of person and property so long as the individual is not engaging in an unlawful activity and is in a place they’re allowed to be.
Again, please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1212.
