AR: Senate Committee Votes Down New Self-Defense Bill
Submitted">Mark A. Taff

After a heated and contentious debate, Arkansas' Senate Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday against a bill which would have loosened regulations for the use of deadly force in self-defense.

The panel voted 4-3 against the legislation which would no longer require residents to retreat before defending themselves with deadly force, as the current law does.

As public testimony hit the two-hour mark, the committee voted to limit the remaining comments to ten minutes for each side, prompting Democrat Sen. Stephanie Flowers, the committee's vice chair, to chastise her fellow senators.

Italy: Italy steps up 'legitimate self-defense' measures
Submitted">Mark A. Taff

The Chamber of Deputies, Italy's lower house, on Wednesday voted in favor of a draft law that would tighten self-defense provisions.

The bill specifies that "defense is always legitimate" in a person's home. It aims to protect a person who acts in self-defense in response to a perceived threat from an intruder.

Under current legislation, a person who harms an intruder, even in cases of self-defense, can be held responsible for damages.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
