DeSantis Signs New Law in Light of Illegal Behavior Outside of Supreme Court Justices’ Homes

The state of Florida is benefiting from all of the stupid things that leftists continue to do on a regular basis.

Governor Ron DeSantis is on a roll when it comes to helping the people of Florida improve their quality of life.

Following the recent protests by liberals outside the residences of numerous Supreme Court justices, including Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed legislation to make it clear that he would not tolerate such behavior in his state.

DeSantis signed Florida House Bill 1571 into law Monday. The law bans protests outside a person’s home. Under the law, law enforcement officers must first issue a warning to protesters to disperse, but if they do not, officers can arrest them. Violations of the law will be prosecuted and punished as second-degree misdemeanors. The law will go into effect on October 1.

“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate,” DeSantis said in a statement Tuesday. “This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law.”

The new law states:

It is unlawful for a person to picket or protest before or about the dwelling of any person with the intent to harass or disturb that person in his or her dwelling.

…..

Before a person may be arrested for a violation of this section, a law enforcement officer… or a local, state, federal, or military law enforcement agency must go as near to the person as may be done with safety and shall command any person picketing or protesting before or about the dwelling of a person to immediately and peaceably disperse. If any such person does not thereupon immediately and peaceably disperse, he or she may be arrested for a violation of this section.

This is a yet another move in the right direction. Now, if they could just fix the alligator, hurricane, and humidity problem, I’d be headed down to Florida to find a home myself.
