    Seems like a great place to live.
    If some thug is bashing in your head, you have the right to defend yourself.
    Also, if you decide you don’t like somebody’s loud music and proceed to empty your gun into their car, you will be put in a violent state prison for probably the rest of your life.
    What’s the problem?

    the stand your ground is the problem? Please show me where? You are very ignorant on this strip. black guy in a hood? no stand your ground there? popcorn? nope nothing there about stand your ground. The idiot who shot at kids in the car? nope stand your ground not a factor. So what is it really you are trying to say? You afraid of law abiding citizens having guns? bo ho ho.

    Today’s assignment will be a simple one. Find a law that works and criticize it without reason, suggesting a whole bunch of alternate regulations that increase the power of government and decrease the freedoms and responsibility of the subjects of that government. Good luck, and don’t forget to show your work.

    “If some thug is bashing in your head, you have the right to defend yourself.”

    Yup, if the police tell you not to follow someone, you can follow them, have an altercation with them, shoot them dead, and claim they were trying to kill you.

    Let me guess, you get all your “news” from one of those lame stream medias that edit 911 tapes so that they are racist and bring in the likes of JJ and Sharptounge. I will throw you a bone. 1 it was a 911 operator, 2, you have no legal or moral obligation to follow a 911 operators advice, 3, a guy got jumped on the way back to his car, that is what the cops on there said at the time, that is what was proven in a court of law.

    The police can tell you not to follow someone but unless there is a legal restraining order or other legal reason involved you can ignore what they tell you.
    If you have an altercation with them due their ambushing you and then pummelling you you can shoot them to defend yourself… Except in Progressive Leftist basitions of peace like Chicago or Detroit where self-defense is not allowed and you die.

    Bears in Alaska do similar actions when being hunted.
    They step off to the side and wait for the predator to go by and nail them from behind.
    I do not consider this a bad thing, the bear just wants to live and he is not the one being the aggressor.

    “Stand your ground” varies by state. In Texas, a guy was let off after shooting two men IN THE BACK, in HIS NEIGHBOR’S FRONT YARD, and killing them. He had no probable cause whatsoever that would justify a police officer doing the shooting, his only defense was Texas’ version of stand your ground.


    I have a carry permit, and support both firearm ownership by legitimate folks, and self defense, even deadly force, when WARRANTED. None of the three now infamous Florida cases stand the test of self defense. In all three cases the shooter was the aggressor. Skittles, popcorn, and loud music don’t represent a deadly threat, and the actions of all three warrant at least conviction on second degree (non-premeditated, but subject to question in these thee cases) murder.

    The problem with stand your ground laws as they are written is that you can shoot someone if you BELIEVE they are a threat to you, whether or not they really were. Doesn’t matter if they don’t have a gun or other weapon. If you BELIEVE they will harm you, you can go ahead and blast away.

    It was the neighbor’s backyard and the men were leaving the house after breaking and entering….

    @dtroutma

    Thank you for pointing out that Stand Your ground as pertained to this strip is a non factor. Only a scare tactic by someone who does not understand and is anti gun!

    I am shocked to see that nobody picked up on the fact that the Trayvon Martin case was not a Stand Your Ground case, but one of pure self defense in the face of deadly force.
    Trayvon’s intended victim was not charged with not following the instructions of the 911 operator, or with being stupid, neither of which are actually against the law.
    He was charged with murder, and it was determined that he was acting in self defense in a case where he was threatened with mortal harm from an assailant. He was found not guilty because the facts of the case did not support murder, but they did support self defense.
    If somebody were to mount a civil case wherein they charge that Zimmerman instigated the confrontation beyond reasonable actions appropriate to a community watch participant and was therefore liable for damages for wrongful death on the grounds that the confrontation could easily have been avoided, they might well make a case of it.
    They did not do so.
    It did not serve the interests of the people seeking to create a greater division of people along racial lines and against gun ownership, who should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves, but are not likely to be so.

    Yes, he legally ignored the police, followed someone, and the person he followed died.
