    Florida lawmakers expand ‘stand your ground’ law to include "threatened use of force"

    "On Thursday, a ... bill to expand the state’s self-defense statutes sailed through a key state House committee with bipartisan support. It is expected to pass the full chamber. The “threatened use of force” bill would most likely have prevented Alexander from receiving her lengthy sentence, because it amends “stand your ground” to include the threat of force, not just the use of force itself."

    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    There is more misinformation floating around about this bill than there was surronding the Zimmerman trial.

    Not a chacne in hell.

    because it amends “stand your ground”
    More misinformation.
