(Bismarck, ND) — A proposed “stand your ground” bill could be on its way to becoming law in North Dakota. Last week, lawmakers approved the measure which, if enacted, would reportedly broaden the circumstances under which one could use a firearm in self-defense in North Dakota. Currently, one must attempt to retreat and demand an attacker do the same before exercising deadly force. The current bill, which now heads back to the House, gets rid of that stipulation. Right now, more than 30 states have similar laws on the books.
