Democratic State Representative Randy Dunn of Kansas City says recent high profile cases across the country where deadly force was used and could have been avoided prompted him to propose a change to Missouri law.
The stateâ€™s Castle Doctrine law allows gun owners to defend themselves with deadly force from an intruder that poses an imminent threat of bodily harm or death. Representative Dunn has proposed House Bill 1940 that would amend the law to require gun owners to consider retreating before pulling the trigger.
The proposal would require someone to attempt to retreat if possible, justify that they had no other choice if deadly force is used and disallow automatic immunity from civil lawsuits if deadly force is used.
The fact that those “high profile cases” didn’t actually involve “stand your ground,” nor was it used as a defense, doesn’t seem to matter to low-IQ Representative Dunn.
