No state is going to repeal the Stand Your Ground laws as long as there are people like Trayvon running around full of cheap drugs, and a desire to attack someone from behind. If Zimmerman had not been armed that fateful night he would have been found the next morning with his head split open. Dead.

But those N-Words sure hate that law don't they? Eliminating the Right to defend ones self would make their criminal tendencies so much more trouble free. My lifetime goal is to make their life short when they try me. Real goddamn short just like George did!

If someone invades your home or attacks you, I feel you should be allowed to use whatever force needed to protect yourself

And as long as the drug addicts have an inkling you might shoot them dead they will likely leave you alone. But is you live in a state like Illinois that protects the criminal they just assume you are unarmed. Bad assumption most of the time. We would rather be judged by 12 then carried by six!!

OMG Really? The fact that that should even be mentioned as though there is some other option is troubling.

Kenya via Illinois gave us the "community organizer" that is destroying America. The state is a melting pot of shit just like Cali, NY, and DC. Be best to round all those liberal Communists up and march em into the sea with their pet N-words.

No state will repeal SYG as long as the politicians are protecting the little thugs they have bred over the past couple generations. If they tried Americans would just disobey an unconstitutional law. We aren't going to Jeopardize our lives because some Liberals want to protect their criminals.

my wife likes a pretty yard.and spends many hours in the summers with her garden and her flowers. our son bought her a 5 ft statue of a garden venus, and my wife loved it.well some big lipped boons stoled it a few weeks ago.i kinda knew which ones got it...but i couldnt prove it. so i went to town and bought her the exact same statue, because she was heartbroken it had got stolen.but i ran a hot wire from a battery to a metal piece i welded to the inside of the statue.hid it real good, and hid the battery in some bushes so it couldnt be seen...and i waited. it took the bastards 2 days but they came back to steal it. but this time they got the shock of their life...lmao..the one boon got shocked so bad he pissed his pants,and the other one ran like a cut cat lol.i laughed so hard i almost pissed mine. saw them walking around a few days later the one had his hand bandaged. they didnt have anything to say but they pooched out their lip as they walked on by...i think its safe to say they wont be back in my yard.

Should have had it rigged x 440 and left them laying there dead as a doornail.

Its amusing that some people feel the need for some special law like SYG to defend yourself from a attacking criminal. Self defense is not only a Right its an obligation. Do so without remorse or shame and live to talk about it. Fail to do so and meet your maker! LOL!

you know,i thought about it.but i really didn't want a dead body littering the yard. and all those people tromping across my yard.this served the purpose,and let the fools know that i am smarter than them.and i got a good laugh when i saw the boon walking down the street with his hands bandaged. but if they ever try coming in on me or my wife,they will leave in a body bag. and i think even those fools know that.

Keep an adequate weapon within arms reach 24/7. You probably haven't heard the last of those wicked savage beasts. Again at arms reach and don't hesitate a fraction of a second. May be worth something to file a report IDing them to threats received too.

What he does now is his own business as far as Im concerned. My opinion of his innocence and legally utilizing his his Right of Self Defense and Right to Carry a firearm when attacked by the afrikan thug stands as is. If he screws up now hes on his own. He should know he has enemies and some will continue to attack for various reasons. Id suggest extreme caution and carefully select my associates.

I don't think it needs to be repealed. People need to be able to protect themselves, especially women. But it needs refining. It's so open~ended it lets people by with things like starting a fight then shooting the person if they start loosing the fight they started. Those type shootings need to go to court.
