    Florida Law on use of deadly force [W:390]

    Here is the link.

    Lawful Self-Defense - Weapons - Division of Licensing, FDACS



    Florida law justifies use of deadly force when you are:

    Trying to protect yourself or another person from death or serious bodily harm;
    Trying to prevent a forcible felony, such as rape, robbery, burglary or kidnapping.
    Here is link of an interview with the Stand Your Ground author.

    I still think Zimmerman ignored the 911 Dispatcher and went after the kid anyways.

    I disagree with the highlighted in sub-section 12:

    (12) No license issued pursuant to this section shall authorize any person to carry a concealed weapon or firearm into any place of nuisance as defined in s. 823.05; any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station; any detention facility, prison, or jail; any courthouse; any courtroom, except that nothing in this section would preclude a judge from carrying a concealed weapon or determining who will carry a concealed weapon in his or her courtroom; any polling place; any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district; any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof; any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms; any school administration building; any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose; any elementary or secondary school facility; any career center; any college or university facility unless the licensee is a registered student, employee, or faculty member of such college or university and the weapon is a stun gun or nonlethal electric weapon or device designed solely for defensive purposes and the weapon does not fire a dart or projectile; inside the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport, provided that no person shall be prohibited from carrying any legal firearm into the terminal, which firearm is encased for shipment for purposes of checking such firearm as baggage to be lawfully transported on any aircraft; or any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by federal law. Any person who willfully violates any provision of this subsection commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s.775.082 or s. 775.083.
    Firearms should be allowed in all public schools.

    What was the Florida law before this? Does this law move in the direction of more freedom or more control?

    I think this law mirrors the federal guidelines on concealed weapons, but the general lean of the SYG law was more freedom since it replaced a strict castle doctrine type of law.
    The question is more important than the answer!

    Castle Doctrine I fully agreed with, but in its absence, I can pretty much accept the Florida law for this as stated. Not perfect, but close enough.

    I agree with the law. It protects both those who may be forced to defend themselves from serious harm, and those whose actions haven't warranted the use of deadly force
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
