The law may be in for a challenge in the 2015 legislative session. Several lawmakers have publicly acknowledged their in intent to repeal the law, noting the number of cases where the law is applied.
Monday, State Representative Ellie Hill of Missoula submitted a draft request to do just that. The request came after a German foreign exchange student was killed by a homeowner in a Grant Creek neighborhood. Hill says, âhuman life is more important than a âreasonable beliefâ that you are protecting your property.â
In fact, Rep. Hill would like you to help the thug carry your stuff out to his car. If he doesn’t have one, you should give him the keys to yours.
