The way I read the text of the Senate bill, you have a duty to retreat if a bear comes into your house.  These Senators live in an alternate universe.

Where is that in the current bill (JUD Joint Favorable PDF)? The language added (see page 5, line 129 to line 135):

(c) Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent any person from using deadly physical force to kill a bear if such person reasonably believes that a bear is: (1) Inflicting or is about to inflict great bodily harm to a human, (2) injuring or killing such person's pet that is otherwise controlled in accordance with any applicable provision of the general statutes or any regulation adopted pursuant to such a provision, or (3) entering a building occupied by persons.

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

Don't harm Transgender Bears. The state will frown upon that!

It was in the Raised Bill:
(d) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (c) of this section,
166 no person shall be justified in using deadly physical force to kill a bear
167 if such person reasonably should have known that such person could
168 avoid the necessity of using such deadly force by retreating.

Apparently someone with a brain removed that language.
