Default Arkansas law getting teeth

introduced--House Bill 1027

The bill would eliminate language in the state's existing self-defense law that requires a person to retreat, if possible, before using deadly force to defend a person.

Burris' bill states that a person who is in a place where he or she has a right to be and is not engaged in unlawful activity "has a right to stand his or her ground and meet deadly physical force with deadly physical force ..."

finally getting some common sense in a law! burglars beware-of gun toting owners and not the dog![:@]

Sorry, I just can't pass up a good straight line.
