Liberals and Self-Defense

Should the law should compel capitulation?

The Florida legislature has just passed a law giving any person " the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm." Liberals don't like this one bit:
"It's almost like a duel clause," said state Rep. Dan Gelber, a Miami Beach Democrat and former federal prosecutor whose wife is a state prosecutor. "People ought to have to walk away if they can."
That last sentence sums up liberal philosophy pretty well. Contrary to what the critics say, this measure will encourage civilized behavior.
