Self-Defense Poor House
The lamestream media told you:
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Florida has a self-defense law the rest of the nation needs badly.
If you "win" a self-defense court trial you're put in the poor house by the "justice" system. Costs can typically run into six figures. Do you have that kind of money? Kiss your house goodbye. That's not a win. And that's not justice by any rational definition.
If you prevail in a self-defense trial, which basically means the state should never have charged you at all, and you did their job by stopping or eliminating a violent felon, the state should be liable for your legal bills. The idea that you deserve a medal or a parade is too radical for the moderate Uninvited Ombudsman.
"Loser pays" is not some wacky new principle of law. It is a well established and just practice in civil cases. Not only does it make you whole again -- and this is key -- it is a serious deterrent to the state to go after you in the first place. It would eliminate many of the marginal attempts to incriminate people for defending themselves against truly bad actors.
Two states already have such protection, Washington and Florida.
Arizona, which constantly comes up with the best gun laws in the nation, should be next. I'm working on it. You should too, for your state.
