Yet another reason for me to support State Senator Scott Brown. He’s bringing common sense legislation to Beacon Hill and he’ll bring it to Capitol Hill as our next US Senator!
State Sen. Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) is pushing to protect anyone who uses deadly force to save lives from lawsuits after legal action was threatened against an off-duty security guard who shot a psych patient who was brutally slashing his doctor.
Brown will file legislation today expanding the Good Samaritan law to allow anyone who uses deadly force to protect themselves or another person from murder, aggravated rape, rape, manslaughter or armed robbery.
“We should be protecting people who put their lives at risk to prevent further crime,” said Brown. “My hope is this will stop attorneys from trying to seek damages.”
