This is a great law. If someone attacks you then you should be able to legally defend yourself with anything you have. The fact that this law will be used to defend Mr Zimmerman doesn't make this a bad law. Let's wait until all the evidence comes out in this Florida case and not start changing laws that actually help us stay safe.
