file this under "what took so long?"

and why can't we do this in california? what am i talking about? a state government that actually thinks it's citizens are adults, and should be capable of protecting themselves, that's what.
The Florida House of Representatives, citing the need to allow people to "stand their ground," voted 94-20 to codify and expand court rulings that already allow people to use deadly force to protect themselves in their homes without first trying to escape.
. read the rest of the article here. the only thing about this whole article that pisses me off is that it is filed under "oddly enough". but then, it is odd that a government would trust it's people to act responsibly. no "nanny state" hand wringing. just common sense. hey bad guys, watch out. this idea might spread throughout the land. well, it could happen. when pigs fly, but it could happen.
here in california, the safest, most protected and coddled citizens are it's criminals. and that, my friends, is criminal in and of itself.

You have to first try to escape your own house in California? That would never fly here in Texas!

The impact on street crime would be interesting to see in a couple of years, should this sensible measure pass the senate. Criminals prey on the weak and elderly for obvious reasons. This would even the odds for grandmas and at least give the willing a respectable chance. Ask yourself why this would not be a good idea when two, liberal lawyers in NYC maintained a pit bull that killed one of their neighbors? No, liberals do not need to defend themselves, (they said they were keeping the dog for a jailed client who was breeding them for sale)...! Bravo, Florida!
