Lena Taylor, Jim Sullivan: Homeowners Be Damned

Lena, the wannabe-County Exec in Milwaukee, is sitting on the "Castle Doctrine" bill.

AB 35 is currently stuck in the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Corrections, and Housing.

AB35 would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their homes. It is clearly stated that there is no “duty to retreat” from an attacker, allowing law-abiding citizens to stand their ground to protect themselves and their family. AB35 also protects individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.

And Guess Who is the chair of the Senate Committee which refuses to act?

Senator Lena Taylor (Chair)

Other, predictable, obstructionists:

Senator Jim Sullivan and Senator Kathleen Vinehout.

Obviously, Wauwatosa homeowners don't need protection in their homes, either, eh, Jimmy?

Evidently, protecting thugs from law abiding citizens is a whole lot more important to these weasels.

It should be pointed out that this bill passed in the Assembly on A VOICE VOTE!!!!

To those of you who may not know, that means that NOBODY objected, or those that did had no interest in pushing the RED button indicating a no vote.
