The Minnesota House Public Safety Committee voted to send a Stand Your Ground bill on to the full House for a vote. If passed, it would help give law abiding citizens the right to use deadly force in self-defense instead of running away.

The full Minnesota House may soon vote on a bill expanding the right to use firearms to protect yourself. Often called a Stand Your Ground law, HF 238 would legalize the use of deadly force if a person feels their life is threatened, or in the defense of a crime in one’s home.

The bill had a hearing earlier this month in the House Public Safety Committee and was re-introduced Tuesday with no testimony. The bill passed on a 9-6 vote.

Stand Your Ground still faces an uphill battle in the Minnesota Legislature. So far, it has not received a hearing in the Senate, and Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed a similar bill in 2013.
