FL: Important Self-Defense Bill Set For Tuesday Senate Hearing

posted on January 20, 2017

Florida’s Senate Judiciary Committee will hear a critical self-defense bill on Tuesday morning, and Florida gun owners should let their voices be heard. 

SB-128 Burden of Proof by state 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 anti-gun 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 anti-gun prosecutors and judges reversed it. For a better understanding of what SB-128 will accomplish, check out this video in which Senate President Joe Negron explains why this bill is so important.

Five members of the Senate Judiciary Committee need to hear from you before this measure is heard next Tuesday between 2 and 4 p.m. For a complete list and contact info, click here.
