A critical self-defense bill under consideration in South Carolina was unanimously approved by the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
H. 4703 was favorably reported out of the House Judiciary Committee by a 20-to-0 vote. The measure will now move to the House floor for consideration by the full House of Representatives.
The measure, introduced by Republican House Judiciary Chairman Greg Delleney and strongly supported by the National Rifle Association, seeks to clarify the Protection of Persons and Property Act (South Carolina’s “Castle Doctrine”) to ensure that a defendant who is denied protection from prosecution under this Act is able to immediately appeal such a denial.
