HELENA, Mont. (AP) – Both Republicans and Democrats in the Montana Legislature agree that homeowners need absolute certainty that it is OK to gun down intruders.
But that doesn’t mean there is any guarantee that various versions of so-called “castle doctrine” self-defense legislation will clear a closely divided Legislature.
The bills all aim to clarify that homeowners don’t have an obligation to first run away while under assault in their home.
But Republicans have their own bills brewing, and are gathering the backing of gun groups.
