Tallahassee State Rep. Alan Williams (D) filed a bill, HB 4003, yesterday to repeal Florida Statute 776.013. This irresponsible legislation would take away the right to defend yourself at the outset of a home invasion or carjacking. It would eviscerate the castle doctrine protections in Florida statutes. The bill would also repeal part of the “stand your ground” law that allows a person to defend themselves anywhere they have a right to be with a requirement that they attempt to outrun their attacker first.
