warning shot bill
The Florida House voted 93-24 to pass the “warning shot” bill, which would allow individuals to fire a warning shot instead of retreating from the threat of death or bodily harm.
The ‘warning shot’ bill has been approved by its final Senate committee and will be heard on the Senate floor.
The Florida state prosecutor who charged George Zimmerman with second-degree murder is now looking to put a woman who claimed she fired a warning shot against her husband behind bars for 60 years.
Florida legislators are pushing ahead with a bill designed to make it clear people can show a gun, or even fire a warning shot, without drawing a lengthy prison sentence.
