Riddick vs. Florida

It was obvious as far back as 2008:
... In a decision, Judge Lewis criticised the Stand Your [Ground] Law even as he applied it.
He said the men had all been spoiling for a fight, both groups were armed, and none took precautions to avoid a gunfight.
"Two individuals, or even groups, can square off in the middle of a public street, exchange gunfire, and both be absolved from criminal liability if they were reasonably acting in self defence," he wrote.
"The law would appear to allow a person to seek out an individual, provoke him into a confrontation, then shoot and kill him if he goes for his gun."
I wonder if the Florida legislature was comprised of Necromongers, such as the villians in The Chronicles of Riddick? I think they were... and are.
