7. Obviously you're not getting my point

Where do you think a law like "Stand your ground" comes from?

What kind of person would want it to exist?

Given the underlying fears and prejudices that exist in our society, from whom is the stand-your-grounder supposed to be protecting themselves from?

That law is simply Carte Blanche for people to shoot others that piss them off. The vast majority of people shot were unarmed, that's a fact.

Add fear, prejudice and happy trigger fingers without consequence and you'll end up with dead people, killed for no reason at all.

Either we're all are going to have to learn to live together in peace and harmony, or we're all going to have to live in fear of each other.

Which way would you rather have?
