Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria, voted in favor of the Personal Protection Act Thursday.

The bill would extend the right to use deadly force for personal protection outside the home to any place where an individual lawfully can be.


Ingebrigtsen said the measure was an easy one to support.

"When we raise our right uphold the Constitution, we have to uphold all of the Constitution [and] that includes the right to bear arms."
