Florida Legalizes Murder

Culture of life, indeed. The Florida state house yesterday passed a law that allows you to "meet force with force." The law says that if you feel threatened you have the right to defend yourself with deadly force. So basically, as long as there are no witnesses, feel free to kill anyone you want. State Rep Dennis Baxley, sponsor of the bill, had the following to say.

"I'm sorry, people, but if I'm attacked I shouldn't have a duty to retreat, That's a good way to get shot in the back. If people have the clear right to defend themselves without having to worry about legal consequences, criminals will think twice."

Florida is lucky to have State Rep Baxley. Very few states have Reps that can understand the careful, measured thought pattern of crackheads. Florida has had concealed carry for years and this same rational was used to pass it. Is this an admission that concealed carry doesn't deter crime? Oh, and I'm sure this will be applied evenly across all races.

Florida has a lot of agriculture. Maybe that is why the legislation needed to pass laws in the past few months that treat vegetables better than humans.
