Default Florida lawmakers want to expand SYG law

The Trayvon Martin crowd wanted hearings into Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law. It should be repealed, they said. They demanded hearings.

The hearings were held.

The lawmakers decided Florida's "Stand Your Ground" laws were good and should actually be expanded.

Oops.

Lol

I don't agree expanding it to "warning shots". The convicted woman was actually trying to murder her husband who had a restraining order against her...

This is absolutely great. The antis got a hearing wanting to abolish the law and instead it was expanded! I'm laughing myself sick. As the antis would say "Ain't that a kick in the a$$".

even if they do expand it to include the ability to use a warning shot, i still don't agree either that they are a good idea. but still, it's a step in the right direction, that they are looking to expand the power of the SYG laws, instead of repealing them.

and IIRC, Marissa Alexander left the residence and got a gun and then returned. i can't see being in fear for her life under those circumstances. and she was also offered a three year sentence, but wanted her day in court. she deserves exactly the sentence she got due to her stupidity.

i'll just bet this ruling is chapping some butts now!

I was taught never to display a firearm as a means of intimidation. "Never point a gun at anything you don't intend to shoot." Good rule.

Warning shots being legally used as a level of self defense is not a good thing. If god forbid a person has to shoot an attacker the first thing they will ask: Why was there no warning shot??

Other than that, Pretty awesome.

I didn't read it as requiring a warning shot, just that there would be no necessary penalty if you decided to do so.

I hear you about how this could morph into a requirement, but I don't see that in the news report at all. As for the "rules" about CCW and armed self-defence.....aren't we the crowd that rejects rules? I think sometimes we might forget to trust each other?

Each other we trust. The government we do not.

Warning shots are nothing but trouble. Where did the bullet go? The situation was bad enough to discharge a firearm, but not bad enough to shoot the aggressor. Just bad news all the way around.

I agree 100%. Who would fire a warning shot when their life was in danger???
