House says no to “Stand Your Ground”

It’s a close one, but the bill to repeal the “Stand Your Ground” law made it through the New Hampshire House.  It makes deadly force no longer a viable first option if someone is defending themselves or others in a public place, so long as they can safely get away.  The bill returns the law to the old one, permitting the use of deadly force in defending oneself from intruders at home.  The bill now goes to the Senate.
