Gov. Corbett signs Castle Doctrine into Law

Today, Governor Corbett signed into law Pennsylvannia’s “Castle Doctrine” bill. Helping protect Commonwealth residents from criminals and frivolous lawsuits.

Essentially this law:

a) affirms longstanding common law that one has a right to protect one’s self and loved ones from those seeking to harm them in their home.

b) recognizes that right also exists within one’s vehicle

c) reflects that it is not always safe to flee, and requiring an attempt to do so under unsafe conditions is unfair to Commonwealth residents.

d) protects a citizen who is cleared criminally of any negligence or crime from civil lawsuits.
