    FL Statutes Chapter 776 JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE 776.013 Home protection; use of deadly force; presumption of fear of death or great bodily harm.--

    (1) A person is presumed to have held a reasonable fear of imminent peril of death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another when using defensive force that is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm to another if:

    (a) The person against whom the defensive force was used was in the process of unlawfully and forcefully entering, or had unlawfully and forcibly entered, a dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle, or if that person had removed or was attempting to remove another against that person's will from the dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle; and

    (b) The person who uses defensive force knew or had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry or unlawful and forcible act was occurring or had occurred.

    We Floridians can and will protect our property also!

    Yikes. Shouldn't have called the cops I guess?

    The people in England have some work to do. It would be VERY telling if they would lift the ban on guns and have the crime rate plummet. I will keep the UK in mind for an example of why gun bans are bad.

    Thank god for what we do have, and for the hope of regaining more of that ground.

    Still not as good as Texas's law. This law only prohibits the use of deadly force if the person fears bodily injury, harm, or death. In Texas, you need not fear injury or death to defend property with deadly force.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
