LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas' Republican governor says he's hesitant to change the state's rules regarding use of deadly force in self-defense, saying he believes the current law has worked well.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson told reporters Tuesday he'll continue to hear if there's a case made for changing the current self-defense law, which he said is strong in terms of allowing self-defense and protection.
A Senate panel last week rejected a bill that would no longer require residents to retreat before defending themselves with deadly force, as the current law does.
