Default Stand your ground...

Looks like some don't like the idea of protecting ones self. As stated stand your ground is under the 2nd. Hopefully they don't find a way around it.

It really is stupid to take it away, your not gonna be able to run away from every situation, what if someone is trying to jack your car and your kids are in the back, are you just suppose to let them take your car and kids ? Or are you gonna ask politely if you can unbuckle your kids out of the car seats and take them with you ?

It will be interesting to see if they get enough traction to put it on the Nov ballot as indicated.

I have mixed feelings of it on the ballot.
First choice is it doesn't make the ballot and dies, however, they can try year after year.
Second choice is it makes the ballot and gets defeated. If that happens, it is not likely to come back up again, which would be a good thing.

Or; 3rd they push the race card trayvon crap and the thousands of african Americans will show up to make sure there's no more racial injustice. In which case, it will pass. IF the proposal makes the ballot and is campaigned correctly; it may pass.

Numbers show that stand your ground laws have in the past help the African American Community more that any other. Maybe because more of those crimes happen in black hoods.

This.


The whole "racial bias" surrounding this that is being trumpeted by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson (who happen to be making a ton of money off of it... imagine that) has nothing to do with the law. It has to do with most violent crime being perpetrated BY MINORITIES. It's absolutely ridiculous to ignore that fact and claim that people defending themselves against violent attack and or murder is somehow racist.

This is a prime example of what is wrong with our society.

Numbers don't matter to a "Reverend" with an agenda. Particularly the black ones.

I agree. But it will never change. Hopefully it doesn't even make the ballot; and if it does I hope itis defeated.
