Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is reportedly proposing "anti-mob" legislation that would expand the state's Stand Your Ground law to allow armed citizens to defend themselves against violent rioters and looters, according to CBS4 News partner the Miami Herald.
The Stand Your Ground law protects those who kill someone if they're in fear for their lives but this proposed legislation would expand the use of force justifications.
Those who oppose it say expanding the law could will give armed people the legal right to fatally shoot suspected looters, or anyone damaging a business.
This new push is reportedly in response to police brutality protests that happened in Florida and across the nation this year.
