No way that was "self defense". The azzhole followed the kid and shot him dead.
Because he knew that **dead** the kid could not testify against him.
The SYG law is an abomination of epic proportions.
You're simply wrong and out of touch with reality.

You've allowed the media hype to color your better judgment.

The "stand your ground law" to protect your property and safety...passed by Jeb Bush in Florida when he was governor...So many were being attacked that carry laws were passed too...crime then dropped dramatically.

Over a year ago, 17 year old black youth murdered a white police officer in St. Petersburg, and was sentenced to life in prison.

There were solemn vigils and fundraising for the family of the slain officer. I don't remember Obama feeling like he had to interject any of his "wisdom" in the situation.

Where's Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Alan Keyes?

What is needed is for the race-baiters to shut up and let the legal system review and react on their findings.

Sadly, in the eyes of these ignorant tools, only the actions of the shooter are wrong, and if/when they take matters into their own hands, that's justice.

Trayvon has a Facebook pic saing he was a made N... and in a gang...suspended from school.

Tragedy none the less. too young to die...but the facts need to be adjudicated.

There were 49 people shot in Chicago last weekend. Almost all of the shootings occurred on the south and west sides, and almost all of the victims were black.

It was a small local story. It's also Obama's home town. Did I miss his outraged statement about this?

Since Chicago is Je$$e Jack$on's home town and the headquarters of his race-mongering business, did I miss HIS statement of rage about this senseless violence?

I don't think he made one, but then again, most of the shooters were poor, black and oppressed.

But that was then, this is now and in his Trayvon Martin speech last week Obama was definitely against the same type of ‘Stand Your Ground’ law he co–sponsored in Illinois.

In the George Zimmerman trial ‘Stand Your Ground’ was a legal defense that didn’t apply, wasn’t used and was basically irrelevant — which puts it in the same category as many of Obama’s pet issues — yet the president made ‘Stand Your Ground’ a central part of his speech.

He asked if ‘Stand Your Ground’ is “really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order that we'd like to see?”

They certainly thought so in Illinois. That’s because repealing ‘Stand Your Ground’ changes the emphasis from the attacker who caused the confrontation to the victim who was attacked.

It’s just a small step down the slope from that mindset to evaluating the clothing of a rape victim to see if her attire contributed to the attack.

The president then proposed a hypothetical,“if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk? And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman, who had followed him in a car, because he felt threatened?”

Oh gee whiz, that’s a tough one.

Let’s see, Zimmerman didn’t sucker punch Martin. He didn’t slam his head into the sidewalk. And he didn’t tell Martin he was going to die. So if Trayvon just up and shot Zimmerman it would be murder.

So Obama’s hypothetical doesn’t make sense, unless he’s trying to manufacture outrage in the black community so his political base will still be angry enough to vote in November 2014.

If he can keep the fire going under the racial outrage pot long enough, he can boost black turnout in the off–year election.

What’s a little hypocrisy and racial agitation among friends?

How about this old chestnut?

Eye halve a spelling checker
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss Steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
it nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
its letter perfect awl the weigh
my checker tolled me sew.

Yep.

But if the holes are made by simple bullets? Some white latex caulk will fill that hole quite nicely.

And easily painted over.

Sure, sure..... believe what you like.

Stand Your Ground law is still sh7t, though.

It **literally** lets anyone get away with murder of anyone else...

... just so long as they are a WHITE MALE, of course.

So do I. Missouri is a Castle Doctrine state with a "shall issue" for a permit. They also honor several other state's permits (such as Georgia, where I purchased the gun). My car is an extension of my home, I can place the gun in my car openly or concealed as long as I don't park it at the courthouse, federal property, university, etc.
Also, being a woman who is 5 feet tall, I can 'reasonably' fear serious bodily harm and defend myself if say, a 6 foot tall man comes at me with anything more lethal than an overripe banana....actually bare handed would probably work just as well. I can't reasonably expect to outfight or outrun......well, pretty much anyone.
Like you, I have mixed feelings about it even though I'm covered whatever I do. I've only brought it out once, there was a strange car parked at the bank (where I worked) and the best way to rob said bank is to force your way in with the first employee in the morning or snag the last employee out in the afternoon. I checked the car, it had been abandoned and I put the gun back in the car in it's case.
It's much-much better to feel silly, at having taken your protection out, than to fail to do so and wish you had...

:)

It's also much better to have to explain to a judge, than to be carried out in a box by 6...

Nope. You've been watching too much Faux Snooze.

But that's okay-- I still like you anyhow.

It hardly matters, as we don't live in the same town, we're likely to never be affected by the stand your ground [legal murder] laws anyhow.

Ooooh... good catch!

I used to laugh, though-- all those "bullets" an nary a single hot shell casing on the floor to trip over...

<laughing>

In the movie Die Hard (the original), we see Willis' character walking around barefoot-- over some broken glass *OUCH* but where are all the hot shell casings from the 1000's of rounds he exchanged with his adversaries?

LMAO!

I once had a hot casing fly up and land in the top of my shoe-- burnt the top of my foot in the second or so it took me to shake it off...

... so they do come out **hot**...

Yes.

But when the subject is supposed to be cerebral and all scientifical?

Then it is most amusing to point out the grammatical errors by the poster.

This is especially true if the poster claims to be all "edumacated-like"...
