4. in the true sense of the word, SYG isn't conservative

conservative means maintain the status quo, or stuck in the past. Since "duty to retreat" outside the home dates back to English common law, and SYG started to appear in US common law during the Progressive Era. AFAIK, Illinois was the first state to pass a SYG law in 1961.
