Which party gets to decide what is reasonable?
It is not "cut and dry"
Florida Governor Jeb Bush has now signed the bill .. and the left is mightily upset. The bill? You know, that bill that actually recognizes the basic human right of self defense. Simply put, the new Florida law says that if find yourself under attack in a public place you don't have to look for a way to run away before you respond with deadly force. Here's your actual wording: In Florida a person now has "the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so, to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another."
What, pray tell, is the problem with that? You're attacked. You have a reasonable belief that you are in danger of great harm or death, or someone else is in danger, and you get to protect yourself with deadly force. Imagine that! A basic human right is the right of self defense. The very first governments formed by humankind were governments formed for one purpose ... to act to defend the people.
But what about the opponents? Well, it's the same old cast of characters. The mainstream media and liberals ... Democratic leftists. Democrats have a long history of opposing virtually any law that would allow a person to exercise their right to self defense. Most of you don't remember this, but about 30 years ago Ted "The Slug" Kennedy came up with a law introducing a new Federal Criminal Code. His idea was to compel the 50 states to adopt the federal code as their own. In that bill there was a retreat requirement. If you woke up in the middle of the night and heard someone rummaging around your home, you would be required to leave your home to the intruder if there was any way you could escape. You were simply not allowed to protect your home and its contents if you had the option to turn tail and run. Thankfully, Kennedy's bill failed.
this is reasonable it explains to all the people whats the is..
