I generally believe there should never be special carve-outs in law for police. However, the text of this Bill is particularly stupid. I'm guessing it won't pass in the present form. :dunnoNo exception for police in that law. Every time they draw their guns they will commit a felony if they don't actually go ahead and shoot the person.
See f.s. 776.031(2) below with my emphasis addec:The companion bill in the Senate CS/SB 728: Threats has already passed out of the Infrastructure and Security committee 7 yeas 0 nays.
It looks like they have at least added the following:
2)A person does not violate subsection (1) if he or she uses or threatens to use a firearm or any other weapon in lawful self-defense, lawful defense of others, or lawful defense of property.
I'm a bit confused about "lawful defense of property", I didn't think it was legal to use a firearm to protect property in FL?
