Self-Defense Bill For Colo. Businesses Fails Again

By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- Democrats rejected a Republican proposal to give business owners and employees in Colorado the right to use deadly force against suspected intruders.

The so-called "Make My Day Better" bill failed Monday in a Democrat-led House committee.

Republicans have pushed the proposal for several years. The bill would expand to businesses the legal protections that exist for people who use deadly force at home under the state's "Make My Day" law.

Republicans say business owners and employees should be able to protect themselves like people at home. But opponents of the bill say it would give businesses too much discretion to use deadly force.
