From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's website

Homeowners who shoot intruders would receive strong legal protection, under a bill approved by the state Senate Thursday.

The bill passed the Senate on a bipartisan 26-7 vote and now goes back to the state Assembly. The Assembly also passed the proposal on a bipartisan vote on Tuesday but since the Senate tweaked the proposal Thursday it will need to have the other house approve it with that change.

GOP Gov. Scott Walker has said that he supports the bill in principle but will still review it before deciding whether to sign it.

I think this is almost as big as concealed carry.
As a disabled veteran I CAN"T run, so having the law protect me if I have to defend myself is a huge weight off my chest.

Of course, I pray that I never need it!

We should have never been without this law. Glad it's moving forward.

Really, it's hard to find a case when a home invasion that leads to the intruder getting shot actually gets prosecuted against the homeowner, let alone charged. Basically this law does 2 things:

a) "Washes the hands" of any DA that does not want to press charges
b) Prevents frivolous civil lawsuits from the victim (intruder)

In my mind, option (a) is a mute point since most people would agree not charging somebody defending their life in their home is "common sense" (I know, common sense is not so common). The big win here is (b), preventing lawsuits from an intruder and/or family members.

Either way, it solidifies a homeowner's rights.

Next step Wisconsin: a "Stand Your Ground" Law

Any place you have a lawful right to be, you have no duty to retreat and can defend yourself with deadly force.

Before the law, Shoot a burglar --- civil suit typically cost 25-100K.

After the law, no civil suit can be brought. Strike one against criminals rights trumping victims rights.
