I will be legally entitled to kill you
in the state of Florida.
I think Colorado's "Make My Day" law is fine and reasonable; if some dark figure is lurking in your home you can't identify in the middle of the night, shoot away. Kicking up a notch, Jeb "Culture of Life" Bush signed a bill this week that makes preemptive strikes not just whizbang foreign policy, but everyday "common sense crime reduction". Now if I "feel threatened", I can start shooting, say, in broad daylight, in the mall, when I see some surly teenagers. If I ever find myself in Florida, I will just shoot everyone I see dead as soon as possible, based on the idea that I am threatened by their potential to become threatened by me and then be legally allowed to kill me.
What the fuck are these people thinking? Oh, Bernard Goetz! You were simply ahead of your time, and north by 2000 too many miles.
