About the same thing as HB 311

so I am just going to copy/paste my comment from that post:
“This is a bill so badly written, it had to be done on purpose. You may remember the infamous case of Marissa Alexander and how she went to prison for threatening to shoot her ex while in fear of her life. Back then Florida would consider assault with a deadly weapon if you only shot to wound, scare or threaten to shoot as some prosecutors would say you were not really in fear of your life and therefore it did not constitute a legal use of lethal force. That was changed and now includes the threat of deadly force.

If passed, it will create a legal conflict because there is no proviso eliminating the actual law and that would mean sending somebody to jail and then appeal all the way up to the Florida Supreme Court.”
