    Florida's Castle Doctrine is a bit different.

    Florida law contains two presumptions:

    1. An individual who unlawfully and forcefully enters a residence does to with the intent of committing a violent felony.

    2. A resident who uses deadly force to repel such an individual is presumed to do so out of a reasonable fear of imminent harm or death.

    While it doesn't allow someone to shoot an intruder "just for the hell of it", it does remove any obligation on the part of the resident to justify their use of force.
