Maryland Governor Signs Self-Defense Reform Bill

Maryland: Governor O’Malley Signs Self-Defense Reform Bill!

Thursday, May 20, 2010

On Thursday, May 20, 2010, Governor Martin O’Malley (D) signed into law a long awaited self-defense measure giving Maryland’s law-abiding citizens the ability to protect themselves and loved ones from harm.

Senate Bill 411, sponsored by State Senator Mac Middleton (D-28), provides civil immunity from damages when force, including deadly force, is used under reasonable circumstances to repel an attack in the person’s dwelling or place of business. Pursuant to Maryland law, this measure will be effective on October 1, 2010.

Please contact Governor O’Malley and thank him for signing SB 411 into law. The Governor can be reached by phone at (410) 974-3901 or toll-free at 1-800-811-8336.
