Introduced by Senator Steube and it reads:
It appears to be a clarification of 790.162 or even an expansion. My question would be how will be interpreted regarding 776.08 and 776.12:
My very non-legal opinion is that seeks to clarify or at least help a defendant who is verbally being threatened with deadly force and produces his own firearm before the attacker gets to his. (All other requirements of self-defense still must be present.)
Still, in the words of Jon Gutmacher, I don’t want to be Defendant Zero and test this bill if it becomes law.
OK, everybody start humming/meditating/invoking and let’s see if we can get Andrew Branca to offer his opinion. 😀
