Florida To Allow Use Of The Force In Self-Defense
by Kris on 4/7/2005 (2)

"This little one's not worth the effort. Now come, let me get you something..."
Governor Jeb Bush said Tuesday that he intends to sign a bill that would allow Jedi Masters and Padawan Learners alike, should they feel threatened, to use the Force without fear of prosecution.

The measure, the top priority of the National Jedi Association in Florida this year, passed the House 92-22 on Thursday. It had already passed the Imperial Senate.

Bush, who has championed tougher penalties for people using the Dark Side of the Force, said the bill is about self-defense and called it "the next logical step towards Florida's eventual policing by certified Jedi Masters."

The measure essentially extends a right Jedi already have in their home or in public restrooms across the state. Under the present law, however, Jedi attacked anywhere else, such as in a seedy intergalactic cantina, are supposed to do what they can to avoid escalating the situation and can use the Force only if their path has been blocked by Storm Troopers or a Rancor.

"You didn't see Obi-Wan running away when the Sand People attacked," said the bill's sponsor, Admiral Ackbar. "That's a good way to end up bantha fodder."

Ackbar said that if Jedi have the clear right to defend themselves without having to worry about legal consequences, criminals and Imperial agents will think twice. Ackbar also said that people should eat "only dolphin safe tuna."

Opponents fear the bill would make Florida resemble the Wild West, but defenders say it will be much cooler because "Jedi's have lightsabers."

The bill says a Jedi has "the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with The Force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is not in the interest of the Dark Side of the Force."

South Carolina, currently the State in the USA with the largest number of registered Jedi Masters, is following this bill closely and their own version of the bill will soon be presented before their State Senate.g/tds/go.php?si
