‘If you are a police officer patrolling the streets and someone throws a brick through a window or abuses an old lady on the way to the shops . . . If you have to take that person all the way through a long court process, you are not going to do it.’
Seems to me the cops’ attitude is a big part of the crime problem.
What’s funny about the Florida thing is that many other states already do not require one to retreat if the three criteria for use of deadly force are met and have not for decades. Florida is new to the club and a big tourist destination so the Brady group thinks they can get traction there. The whole thing is rather funny or pathetic to people that have a good understanding of firearms laws across the nation.
Interesting that Brady cares not about Floridians. It’s not just gun owners that are hurt by negative impact on tourism.
Our second amendment rights are precisely why guilty-until-innocent would not be attempted in the red states.
