 Duane - there has to be a trace of the "bill as written" somewhere in the bowels of the House and by definition it is a public document. Let's just hope that they didn't flush already! ; )  While Mrs. Appleton may want to cover her tracks like a cat in a litter box, the document did exist and when I find it, I will share it. You are on the mark with you time element of only seconds passing in a violent confrotation. No Hollywood slo-mo in real life skirmishes. 


I find it odd that the assigned bill number was moved to another submission. (Another effort to bury an embarrassing faux pas by Appleton?) Ya gotta wonder . . .

I have looked for this as well. I read a email written by Mrs Appleton that stated this bill was withdrawn and will not be re-introduced. Here is a piece that bothered me, greatly.

Sec. 1. . . . (2) Homicide shall not be justifiable under this statute if the slayer knows or should know that he or she could avoid the necessity of using such force with complete safety by retreating.

Pretty much completely absurd. We are talking about a real life violent confrontation here, not some Hollywood movie. Typically these instances of violence will happen in seconds, and be over in same.

Keep in mind what I copied and pasted was from a 3rd party. I would like to have seen the actual bill as written , it seems to have vanished and been replaced when HB1012 was assigned to another bill. If I ever find it I will post here, I do not expect to though.
