  1. And Florida passed a good Castle Doctrine Law a couple years ago; where the victim doesn’t HAVE to retreat which closes down DA’s being able to put a spin on how an assault went down to make the victim/gun user look like the Bad Guy and press charges….PLUS the Bad Guy who breaks in or assaults a  victim and if the victim is forced to shoot, either wounding or killing said BG, neither the BG nor his family can sue the victim who defended themselves.   <<i.e. Case, State Farm vs. Marshall, BG attacked homeowner inside his home, home owner was forced to shoot and only wounded the BG (crippled).  BG went to Court and received a $577,000 Judgment from the HOMEOWNER, which forced homeowner to counter-sue his insurance company State Farm to have them pay the judgment.   Case was decided in Fla’s Supreme Court.   Guess how it came out?   State Farm DID NOT have to pay the judgment due to court’s reasoning the homeowner shooting BG was a Deliberate ACT, not accidental which would have been covered by insurance policy.   TOTAL BS BY THE COURT.
