On Friday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed HB89, which mainly makes clear that self-defense laws — including the Florida no-duty-to-retreat law (often called “stand your ground”) — apply equally to defensive threats of force, including warning shots, as they do to actual force. This seems to me quite right: whatever one might think of the possible scope of self-defense, and of no-duty-to-retreat laws, if actually killing or injuring someone is justifiable self-defense, then threatening to do so should be as well.
