If I’m attacked, I should not have to retreat

The state legislature in Florida, where persistent vegetative state is a way of life, passes the “Stand Your Ground” Bill, allowing people to shoot other people for lookin’ at ‘em funny. Previously, one could not defend oneself with deadly force if one could save oneself from harm by running away. Now, one can shoot the perp dead because, explained legislative moron Dennis Baxley, “If I’m attacked, I should not have to retreat.” Yeah, that’s worth taking a human life for. I’m telling you, these people won’t be happy until they bring back dueling.
