An Act Relative to Violent Protection Order Violations
This legislation has been filed for the 190th General Court by Rep. Kate Campanale.
There has been a long-standing problem with the safety of those who obtain legitimate protections orders, being mostly that the paper does nothing to protect those people. This legislation would require the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security to publish materials regarding lawful self-defense opportunities. These materials would explain a citizen?s options and how to obtain those options. The bill would also establish legal protections for those, having obtained a protection order, should they have to use some type of force to defend themselves.
