Floridans now legally able to shoot people for lookin' at 'em funny-like

Well, not quite yet. But the Florida legislature just passed a law giving Floridians the right to shoot anyone they perceive as a threat, and Jeb Bush intends to sign it. Under existing law, citizens must attempt to resolve a conflict peacefully or flee before being legally able to use force when threatened in public (they can already shoot to kill if their property is invaded).

Not surprisingly, the bill was supported by the NRA.
