Yesterday the Florida House Judiciary Committee voted down HB-4003–the bill to repeal Stand-Your-Ground–by a massive 11-2 margin.
A key reason HB-4003 went down like a lead-filled Titanic was because of the great testimony of many of the citizens who came before the committee.
Perhaps the very best among them was Eric Friday, representing FL Carry.
Here’s the video of his testimony below–it’s well-worth watching.
If you know Eric, be sure to give him a pat on the back–he’s earned it.
