Florida Law Lets Citizens ‘Meet Force With Force’

MIAMI — Welcome to Florida, the Sunshine State. Please avoid unnecessary arguments with locals. Starting today, they may be more inclined to shoot you — at least that’s essentially the message from a national gun-control organization as a Florida law goes into effect empowering people who feel threatened to use force, including firearms, to protect themselves.

As above states ‘Welcome To Florida’, only thing missing is ‘Make Sure You’re Wearing Your Spurs, Chaps and Cowboy Hat!

“It’s unlike any supposed self-defense statute in America,” said Peter Hamm, communications director for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “It empowers people who are on edge and have violent tendencies to presume a situation is dangerous to them that may not be.”

Under a legal concept derived from English Common Law, known as the “Castle Doctrine,” it has been long held that people have the right to stand their ground if attacked in their home. Baxley, a Republican from Ocala, said the new legislation explicitly enshrined that principle in Florida statutes and extended the concept of a person’s “castle” to personal space in a car or anywhere else he or she is entitled to be.

Previously under Florida law, people acting in self-defense outside their home or workplace were supposed to use any reasonable means at hand to escape the danger, including retreat. The new law says they can “meet force with force.”

State Rep. Eleanor Sobel (D-Hollywood), one of the few lawmakers to vote against the bill, said she was worried it could turn the streets of Florida into a latter-day version of the Wild West.

“With this new law, people have an excuse to use guns and say it was in self-defense,” said Sobel. “If you get into an argument in traffic with somebody, you might assume he’s reaching for his gun, so I’ll get mine first.”

“That’s just not what good people do,” LaPierre said. “It’s been proven that good people can use rational decisions about what’s necessary to save their life.”

To alert visitors and potential visitors, the organization is placing advertisements in newspapers in Boston, Chicago, Detroit and Britain, all major markets for Florida’s tourism industry, and plans to begin handing out leaflets to arriving passengers at Miami International Airport on Monday.

“In Florida, avoid disputes,” recommends the newspaper ad. “Use special caution in arguing with motorists on Florida roads.

“If someone appears to be angry with you, maintain to the best of your ability a positive attitude, and do not shout or make threatening gestures,” says the flier.

His only concern, Colton said, is that some people might now wrongly interpret the law to mean that “if you bother me on the street, I can shoot you.”
