A Florida legislator wants to let people fire warning shots if they are threatened.
Polk City Republican Rep. Neil Combee filed a bill Thursday that he says would let people defend themselves without fear of getting arrested.
Combee says he filed the bill (HB 89) as a response to Marissa Alexander and others. The bill would exempt someone from Florida’s “10-20-Life” law if they show their gun or fires a warning shot at an attacker.
