After Second Go Round, Arkansas Lawmakers Approve "Stand Your Ground" Bill

J. Froelich

This week, Arkansas legislators approved a controversial “stand your ground” gun measure allowing the use of lethal force in self-defense without first having to attempt to retreat, which was previously required by the state. The bill has been sent to Gov. Asa Hutchinson for approval. His decision is expected early next week.
