LEGISLATURE PROVIDES SHIELD FOR USE OF DEADLY FORCE
People who use deadly force to protect their homes or vehicles would be shielded from civil and criminal liability under a bill the General Assembly granted final approval on May 15. The bill, SB 62, also requires records of judicial determinations that someone is mentally ill to be entered in the national database used for conducting background checks on prospective guns buyers. The latter provision was in response to the recent mass killing at Virginia Tech University by a mentally ill gunman.
