FLA abolishes retreat requirement for self defense
The Florida legislature has passed a statute abolishing the retreat requirement. The Reuters article indicates that the standard will be "reasonable belief they are in danger of death or great bodily harm." It quotes a Demo state Rep. as saying "All this bill will do is sell more guns and possibly turn Florida into the OK Corral," which says more about the Rep. than it does about the bill.
The article also notes that the Florida courts had already expanded the no-retreat from your home exception to cover business premises and automobiles.
Note that under some legal regimes, retreat can still, dare I say, come in the back door. If the standard is whether deadly force was reasonably seen as necessary (that is, you must reasonably fear death and reasonably believe that deadly force is necessary to avoid it), the prosecution is still free to argue that it wasn't necessary because you could have fled. All the same, the defender is better off in that situation if the jury doesn't have to be instructed that flight was a legal duty.
