On March 20th the Florida House passed warning shot legislation 93-24.
This would allow citizens under attack to fire a warning shot instead of retreating and instead of shooting the attacker immediately.
According to Bradenton.com, bill sponsor Neil Combee (R-Auburndale) said he pushed this bill for the sake of Marissa Alexander.
According to US News & World Report, Alexander was arrested in August 2010 after firing a warning shot while being attacked by her estranged husband. She was tried and convicted, served 21 months of a 20-year sentence, was freed, and will face retrial on July 28th.
