This senate bill at first read seems very similar to the one in the House: HB 6049.
Section 776.013 Home protection; use or threatened use of deadly force; presumption of fear of death or great bodily harm.—
Once again: Your divine right to defend yourself and your loved ones will be illegal if these bills become law. Self defense will become a privilege in the State of Florida. If you are unlucky enough to have to resort to deadly force because you were afraid for your life and/or the life of your family, it will be in the hands of people who were not there (and may have political aspirations) to determine if you can partake of the government-issued privilege and remain free or be sent to jail because they thought you had other options…like dying.

I see lots of people going to jail over this. Floridians are used to castle doctrine, and unless the media spends a lot of time explaining this, Floridians are going to keep on doing it the same old way not knowing about the fundamental change in the law.
To be honest, I’m not sure Floridians will ever catch on to the idea that castle doctrine has been repealed, its too deeply ingrained in the culture.
One would hope jury nullification can help here. But prevention is by far the better answer.
