This bill was introduced in January and reads as follows; 1/6/2009–Introduced.
Citizens’ Self-Defense Act of 2009 – Declares that a person not prohibited under the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act from receiving a firearm shall have the right to obtain firearms for security and to use firearms in defense of:
(1) self or family against a reasonably perceived threat of imminent and unlawful infliction of serious bodily injury;
(2) self or family in the course of the commission by another person of a violent felony against the person or a member of the person’s family; and
(3) the person’s home in the course of the commission of a felony by another person. Authorizes persons whose rights under this Act have been violated to bring an action in U.S. district court against the United States, any state, or any person for damages, injunctive relief, and such other relief as the court deems appropriate.
I urge all to contact their Congress person and tell them to vote in favor of this House Bill.
