A new Nevada bill has been proposed that would allow criminals to sue people who protect themselves. This completely violates our rights.
If an intruder comes into my home, I am going to shoot him. I will not put myself or my family’s lives at risk for a criminal.
Current law in Nevada (Nevada Revised Statue 41.095) states that civil liability immunity is granted to a person who defends them from an attacker. They are not legally responsible for any injuries the attacker sustains from the incident.
Leave it to Democratic senators to try to change this. They do ted to protect the thugs of society.
Under the proposed legislation, a rapist who breaks into a woman’s bedroom would be allowed to sue the woman if she fights back and injures the rapist . Similarly, a father who defends his family during a violent home invasion could be sued by the attackers .
Essentially, the proposed legislation leaves victims with only two choices: self defense, which could result in a costly lawsuit, or huddling quietly with their family in the corner while criminals do what they wish in their home.
The bill represents yet another attempt by liberal lawmakers to undermine a principal of self-defense known as the “castle doctrine” . The “castle doctrine” is a self-defense doctrine, typically outlined within a law, that designates a person’s home, as well as any legally occupied place such as a vehicle, as a place in which a person may use force to defend oneself against an attacker. Such laws provide the victim with immunity from legal prosecution that might result from their defense of their life. The term is most commonly used in the United States, though many other countries have similar principles in their laws.
So what it sounds like to me, is that Nevada carriers better no miss when they shoot, so that the criminal isn’t alive to shoot.
