Dayton's vetom looms over Castle Bill

| No Comments

Gov. Mark Dayton will not veto the Castle Bill, a bill that would essentially broaden gun rights by extending justification for self-defense, immediately.

Accordiing to the Star Tribune, Dayton said that he will wait three days after it has been passed to talk to both side and think about it.

Minnesota's Republican- majority senate voted 40-23 to pass this bill Thursday, according to Minnpost.

This bill would allow gun owners to defend themselves with a gun if they perceive bodily harm. It does not require them to retreat first and it immunes defenders from criminal prosecution, according to Minnpost. Minnpost puts it as, "defend first, ask questions later."

According to the Star Tribune, this bill is supported by the National Rifle Association and opposed by law-enforcement.
