Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Proposes “Anti-Mob” Bill, Expands “Stand Your Ground” To Include Shooting Looters

by Sonny CrockettNovember 11, 2020

A draft of a new bill Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is proposing has been obtained by the Miami Herald. The bill expands the current Stand Your Ground law.

The Stand Your Ground law gives a person the right to use deadly force (and does not have the duty to retreat) if they reasonably believe that such force is necessary to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony or prevent imminent great bodily injury or death to themselves or others.

Here Are Some Of The New Items Proposed By Gov. DeSantis

  • Criminal mischief that results in the “interruption of impairment” of a business, including looting, becomes a forcible felony.
  • Enhance penalties for violent or disorderly assemblies.
  • Makes it a third-degree felony to block traffic during a protest.
  • Offer immunity to drivers who claim to have unintentionally killed or injured protesters who block traffic.
  • Withholds state funds from local governments that cut law enforcement budgets.

A draft version of the bill is being circulated with Florida legislators, but nothing has been filed as of yet.

That should be done long time ago. Looter Breaking into a store and set fire should be shot on sight no questions asked. The shame goes for BLM blocking traffic and harassing innocent people they also should be shot

I totally agree. These “peaceful protesters” as the moronic leftist like to call them have destroyed the working class men and women, burned down locally owned businesses, assaulted several innocent people including the elderly and children, blocking traffic and damaging vehicles and the people who they are doing it to cant do anything about it for fear of prosecution and being a target of their violence and death threats to their families and themselves. The stand your ground law should be like this nationwide.

First of all why do we need a law when we have the constitution of the Second Amendment the reason why is because people are going to jail for protecting their self and their property

I have always said if you start standing up and protect what is yours this garbage of Rioting would stop for sure your property is your property and no one has a right to take it away from you just because they want it and if they get ran over by a vehicle for blocking the highway I see no problem if you stop they’ll open your door and beat you have to death

Makes sense to me. Too long have the bad guys had the advantage, especially in civil actions following criminal incidents. This seems to level the playing field in behalf of the innocent, law abiding.
