Florida Urgent Alert On Stand Your Ground Law!***
Self-defense Bill up in Senate Judiciary on Tuesday 1/24/2017

Reposted from Sully at South Pinellas 912 – January 19, 2017

A critical self-defense bill will be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, between 2:00-4:00pm.

SB-128 Burden of Proof by Senator Rob Bradley restores the presumption of innocence in self-defense cases by putting the burden of proof BACK ON THE STATE where it belongs.

CONTRARY to what some of the media and antigun legislators have tried to claim, this bill is NOT an expansion of the Stand Your Ground law. This bill only puts the burden of proof back on the state where it belongs and where it was before some antigun prosecutors and judges reversed it.

To nullify parts of the Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground law they didn't like, some antigun prosecutors/state attorneys and judges conspired to circumvent the law.

Through court action, prosecutors and judges reversed key provisions of the self-defense law. They created a special "Stand Your Ground" court hearing that forces the person who acted in self-defense to prove innocence rather than the state prove guilt. In other words, victims who defend themselves are now being treated like criminals.

This bill stops that and puts the law back to the original intent of the law. [Innocent Until Proven Guilty!]

Watch this video of Senate President Joe Negron explaining why this bill is important. THEN follow the instructions below and contact Judiciary Committee members.
