When is deadly force justified?
In the Granite State, the answer hinges not just on “when,” but also “where” deadly force is used. It’s known as the Castle Doctrine (as in, “a man’s home is his castle”) and the N.H. House and Senate are taking up two bills in the coming week to change it.
Instead of a full House session, committees are holding extra meetings today. It’s part of a mid-season push to get bills out of committee and up for votes.
House Speaker William O’Brien (R-Mont Vernon) has decided to have no full House sessions this week, allowing more time for committees to make their annual mad rush to beat the legislative calendar.
