Assault on self defense

Andrew Branca reports that the Democrats in the state legislature of Florida are looking to gut the state's self defense laws. They are looking to repeal 776.013: the castle doctrine AND stand your ground.

Democrats at the state level are moving to repeal 776.013, the self defense law that permits defense against home invaders, burglars, and armed robbers. It also contains Stand Your Ground and the Castle Doctrine.
If passed, it would remove the right to use force to defend your home, your car, and your self from a home invader, and create a requirement that you retreat from a person using or threatening force against you. Wife getting raped? Sorry, you must retreat rather than protect her. House getting robbed? Run. Burglar in house? You must leave, and allow them to have your stuff.

Senate Bill 116 (SB-116) is being brought by Senator Geraldine F. “Geri” Thompson (D, and House Bill 4003 (HB-4003) is being advanced in the Florida State House of Representatives by FL Representative Alan B. Williams (D).

This is the real goal of the Trayvon Martin agitators- assaulting self defense and gun rights.

Ok, hotshot. I just looked up both bills:
SB 116: Carbon Monoxide Alarms; Providing that it is a function of the Department of Education to require K-12 public school facilities to install carbon monoxide alarms, etc.

House Bill 4003: Nuclear and Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle Power Plants: Repeals provisions for cost recovery mechanisms for siting, design, licensing, & construction of nuclear & integrated gasification combined cycle power plants, including mechanisms that promote utility investment in, & allow for recovery in electric utility rates of certain costs of, such plants.Effective Date: July 1, 2013

You, sir, are one of those tea-bagger idiots who post inaccurate information either deliberately, or without checking it out. In either case, your type are the problem in this country.

Except you looked up the bills for the 2013 legislative session, which ended in May. The bill numbers I gave are for the 2014 legislative session, which began in July. Florida's fiscal year begins July 1 of each year, so the legislature ends their session for that year in May, and begins the new one in July.

That would make you the idiot, I believe. Low information voters like yourself are the true problem.

Should those efforts at repeal be successful, I predict a stunning decline in reports of rapes, robberies and home invasions and a concurrent increase in very well fertilized flower beds.
