    The Koch Companies should be boycotted for funding laws that make it easier to kill anyone for just being in your space.  I hope that Florida gets boycotted.  Being from Florida I think it is very scary to know that if I shout at someone or seem even a little aggressive to someone they can shoot me and get away with it.  But imagine that you are an AA and is already a target just for the color of your skin, this law is terrifying.

      you and claim self-defense. The contact has to be physical and the danger to the "shooter" must meet at least the test of anticipating "great bodily harm". The ruling case in FL is Gibbs v State.
