Firearms and Other Weapons Had a request for this forum, so here it is. Guess it will give me some place to talk about guns myself after selling my ArmsLocker forum.

you know these politician's can,t be trusted too do the correct thing unless they feel it will cost them votes to screw it up, so take a few minutes to defend your rights, you don,t want to find florida is some legal swamp like D.C. or CONN,or NJ where using a gun to defend yourself in your own home if someone kicks in the door at 2 AM will put you in jail

The critical self-defense bill/burden of proof bill will be heard by the full Senate on the floor Thursday, March 9, 2017. Your ACTION is needed now.

SB-128 Burden of Proof by Sen. 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.

In order 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 "Castle Doctrine 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 against an attacker are now being treated like criminals.

Too many prosecutors are willing to put law-abiding citizens at a disadvantage to make their jobs easier. Some have become more interested in convictions than a fair application of the law.

This bill stops that and puts the law back to the original intent of the Legislature and protections they put in law.

Please EMAIL the following Senate members IMMEDIATELY and URGE them to SUPPORT SB-128
