Statewide Initiative is Underway to Allow Homeowners to Use Deadly Force Against Intruders


The initiative would allow homeowners to use any form of physical force against an intruder.

 

Currently Oregon homeowners can only use deadly force if they're threatened with deadly force.

 

Kevin Mannix with "Common Sense for Oregon" explains the measure.

 

"This empowers people to defend themselves and loved ones in their home.  It protects them from any predatory criminal who can't get you one way, and may try to get you another way."

 

The measure would protect homeowners from being liable for any injury, death or damage suffered by an adult trespasser.

 

The effort needs to  gather 86-thousand signatures to put  on the ballot.
