Alaska House Finance OKs 2 bills expanding gun rights

The House Finance Committee advanced two bills Thursday to expand gun rights, despite concerns from Alaska state prosecutors.

One bill expands the lawful use of deadly force in self-defense. The other restores gun rights for some nonviolent felons. Both now go the House floor.

Current law authorizes deadly force in self-defense to stop a few specific crimes, including robbery, sexual assault, kidnapping or murder. But if people know they can safely withdraw, they’re obligated to do so. That duty to retreat doesn’t apply at home or the workplace.

The bill by Rep. Mark Neuman, R-Big Lake, would essentially eliminate the obligation to retreat by saying that “any place where the person has a right to be” is also an authorized location – just as the home and the workplace are.-[source]
