Stand Your Ground laws make no basic sense! It's illogical, unfair, unjust to hold that a person has a right to start a fight with another and, if the fight turns starkly in favor of the other, to then kill that person. Such laws need to be repealed!

  1. bboyatworkWhen stand your ground laws fail: A year ago, Marissa Alexander was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing warning shots into the air to protect herself from an abusive husband. "Alexander's case has become the latest battleground in a fight against what Alexander's supporters call the misapplication of the Stand Your Ground Law and Florida's mandatory minimum sentencing laws, which offer stiff sentences for crimes involving guns." - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/11/marissa-alexander-sentenced_n_1510113.html   10 years ago
