  • Where do you stand?

    "Stand your ground" law, well, where do you stand?
    Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none - William Shakespeare
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.- James Mattis
    It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived. - Lt. Gen. George S. Patton

    You mean the laws the current administration is using along with the rest of the race hucksters to try and keep a dead man's name in the news?

      Where do I stand? In short... Enforce the laws that we have, not criminalize law abiding citizens with political manure.

      Of course my opinion makes sense and has a snowballs chance in hell of seeing reality as far as Washington is concerned.

          Enter my home, my property, my space and threaten me or mine? You're dead. That's where I stand.

            I dont feel people should have to retreat from spaces that they legally have a right to be in. Nobody should have to run from a criminal or face charges.

              Where do I stand I support as it provides a layer of protection in legitimate circumstances. This crap of retreating is just that crap that gives bad guys the extra opportunity to inflict harm, before you do anything. We have it here in AZ as opposed to the castle doctrine in Ca.

                I support stand your ground. I have a bad back, bad knees. I couldn't outrun the average 8 year old. I HAVE to stand my ground, I have no choice in the matter. The Zimmerman deal was a straight up self defense case anyway, the way I understand it.

                I speak from a private citizen point of view, I am not an LEO.
                When you are dead, you don't know you're dead. It is difficult only for the others around you.

                It is the same when you are stupid.

                    I stand in Texas, the place where we don't have to worry about any of the nonsensical idiots making laws about self defense. Heck, we can shoot people for criminal mischief at night... not that I would, but the penal code allows it.

                      I don't believe you should have to back away from any turd trying to do you harm, steal your stuff or anything else where my safety or the safety of anyone around me is being placed in real or perceived danger.

                      If the choice is you or me...You lose!!!

                        I have to admit I am rather confused by all the excitement over Stand Your Ground.

                        I am not aware of any state law that requires you to retreat and run when unlawfully threatened with physical harm. To the contrary, I believe just about every state allows you to use reasonable force to overcome an attack, up to taking a human life if necessary to defend against an imminent threat of death or great bodily injury.

                        So I’m not sure what the issue is. Are people now suggesting that we should surrender to an aggressor and that we must be punished if we defend ourselves from physical harm?

                        Can someone please tell me what the message is here???

                          It's simply another ruse to attack gun rights and continue slandering Zimmerman - even though "Stand Your Ground" had zero to do with his case.

                          Just like the murkiness of the Occupy message, the people now hollering about "Stand Your Ground" have 1) No clue what it actually is, therefore 2) no clear message about what they want done. "Stand Your Ground" is just the new politically hip version of Budweiser's "Wassup" commercial.

                          "We'll just say it too, 'cause everyone else is!"

                              I would hope to not be in a situation where you have to find out, but I am going to do what I need to ensure the survival of me and mine. Besides it is hard to stand your ground if you are flat on your back.
