Florida Legislators Say "Let The Force Be With You"

Finally! Some common sense!

This past Tuesday,the Florida Legislature approved a bill and sent it to Governor Jeb Bush to sign,which will allow citizens to shoot attackers at home and in public.The old law,said you had to "attempt to run away" before using deadly force against an attacker.Oy gevalt! I am 99.999% certain that whatever pansy invented that law,had some French or Dutch blood running in his veins.Cowards!

The bill (SB 436) originally was intended to put into law the "castle doctrine," a common law principle that allows a person to use deadly force if attacked in the home. At the NRA's urging, the bill removed a provision that says a person has a "duty to retreat" when attacked outside the home.

Under current law, a person acting in self-defense outside the home, workplace or car must use every reasonable means necessary to avoid danger before using deadly force. That, said NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer, is "absurd."

The new law is a helluva lot better:

The new law would legalize retaliation. The bill says: "A person does not have a duty to retreat if the person is in a place where he or she has a right to be." A person who uses force in such cases and is not violating another law could not be charged with a crime or sued.

The bill also says a person has "the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so, to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another."

Hammer said that means a person being attacked with a knife can respond with a gun, because a knife is capable of causing serious injury or death.

Amen! Anyone dumb enough to bring a knife to a gunfight,deserves to be killed just for being stupid.Anyone bringing a gun to a gunfight needs killin',just on a matter of decency and principle.

Now if only South Carolina would pass a law like this,I'd be in hog heaven.But I could just see myself getting in trouble.Finally be packing my iron all legal-like,and go out drinking.Be sitting in a bar,watching W give a press conference,and he says for all Americans to "be vigilant and root out and confront all terrorists everywhere,so we may win the war on terrorism".

After a liter or so of homemade wine,I'd be thinking he said "be a vigilante and root out and confront all tourists and help win the war on tourism".Then the trouble would start.

The French would surrender to me immediately,but the Asians might put up a fight.My Desert Eagle would be little match against a couple hundred Chinamen hurling MSG loaded eggrolls and poo-poo platters at me.That stuff'll make ya shit blood for a week.No wonder they whooped us in two consecutive wars.
