FL: Fla. to Expand Self Defense Immunity

FL: Fla. to Expand Self Defense Immunity

While at least 22 states have similar laws that say people can use force --- even deadly force --- to defend themselves from threats, Florida could soon be the only one that spells out that prosecutors have to prove defendants weren't acting in self-defense before taking someone to trial.

That's under a bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Rob Bradley, who says his legislation "isn't a novel concept."

"We have a tradition in our criminal justice system that the burden of proof is with the government from the beginning of the case to the end," he said.
