A CIVIL RIGHTS VICTORY in Florida:

The law will let Floridians “meet force with force,” erasing the “duty to retreat” when they fear for their lives outside of their homes, in their cars or businesses, or on the street.

Many states, of course, already have such laws and have for years, which rather undercuts the alarmist complaints of the critics. But it’s nice to see this modern trend advance.
