Action Item!

Monumental Castle Doctrine Legislation
Proposed in State Legislature!
Please Contact Your State Representative Today!

Working with NRA-ILA and the Texas State Rifle Association, State Representative Joe Driver (R-Garland) has garnered seventy-eight co-authors to House Bill 284, the NRA-backed "Castle Doctrine"/self-defense reform bill.

The proposed measure is modeled after Florida's landmark law, creating presumptions of reasonable use of defensive force in your home, vehicle, or place of business.� The bill will codify that you have "no duty to retreat" from a violent attack if you are in a place where you have a right to be, if you are not the initial aggressor, and if you are not engaged in criminal activity.� HB 284 also establishes protection from civil lawsuits if you lawfully protect yourself or your family.

You can find out whether your State Representative has signed onto this important measure by visiting:

If your State Representative is already a co-author, please be sure to thank him or her for the support!

If your State Representative has not yet signed on, please contact them next week and urge him or her to co-author HB 284. You can find contact information for your state officials at

If you are reading this, you are the one the bill will benefit. Therefore, if you have not let your state representative and state senator know that you support this bill, please do so. If you have, please contact them again.
